Tired of the same ol’ buffalo and BBQ sauces? Try spreading your wings with a new balsamic-sugar glaze. Sweet and mildly tangy, these have a taste that’ll appeal to any crowd. —Gretchen Whelan, San Francisco
"I normally don't care for wings, but after I tried this recipe that was shared by a coworker, it changed my mind," says Holly Mann of Temple, New Hampshire. A simple overnight marinade coats the wings to create a lovely glaze when baked.
"I've been making these slightly sweet wings for 25 years, and people always love them," says Linda Walker of Dumfries, Virginia. "The wings marinate overnight, then I bake them an hour before serving. The recipe is easy to double or triple for a crowd," she adds.
My husband fine-tuned this recipe - and the results were spectacular! These spicy-hot grilled wings are true party pleasers. You can easily adjust the heat level by altering the amount of chili powder. The wings take a little time, but they're worth it.

Served as an entree over hot cooked rice, these delicious drummettes have plenty of personality—with sweet red pepper for color, red pepper flakes for zip and peanuts for crunch. They're quick and easy to fix, too.

I make these spicy appetizers for parties and football games and never have any leftovers. The hot wings contrast nicely with the cool but zippy dip. When the wings run out, we use the extra cilantro dip on tortilla chips.

My wife, daughters and I often enjoy these buttery wings while watching TV on Saturday nights. The crisp coating of french-fried potato chips is also great on the chicken tenders I make from cut-up boneless chicken breasts.

I came up with this recipe when I got tired of the same old wings. These are baked with onion and garlic, then broiled and basted with a mixture of raspberry jam, barbecue sauce and jalapeno peppers. The sauce is also excellent on pork and is great for dipping. —Sandra Fisher, Missoula, Montana
