The big game is this Sunday and no doubt wings will be on the menu for many home cooks around the country! Read on for 11 delicious options!

No. 1: Super Sriracha Wings with Pickled Carrot and Celery Sticks

Here’s a game-day snack you don’t have to feel guilty about! You can’t beat these deliciously spicy Sriracha wings that are served with creatively pickled carrots and celery, since they are baked – not fried!

No. 2: Confit Chicken Wings with Green Harissa and Lemon Curd Yogurt Dip

For an elevated wing, try Top Chef Richard Blais’ confit wings. He cooks his wings extremely slowly in chicken fat so they become very tender, then deep fries them. He serves with a spicy harissa dip. Delish!

No. 3: Blue Cheese Prosciutto Wings

Is there anything better than crispy prosciutto? This recipe combines that delicious meat flavor with another taste your mouth will love: blue cheese. The combination is seriously out of this world.

No. 4: Sticky Asian Wings

This recipe gets its sticky feel from honey; the soy sauce, lemongrass and ginger add that delicious Asian flavor. Combined, you're going to be one happy eater.

No. 5: Hot Maple Wings

2-ingredient chicken wings made with maple syrup and hot sauce. Do we really need to say more? (Seriously, why are you still reading this?)

No. 6: Pesto Chicken Wings

If you're looking for a full flavor, healthier option for chicken wings, then look no further. These Pesto Wings are baked in the oven until golden brown. We slather them with fresh basil, parsley, walnuts, zesty lemon juice and olive oil. Toss the wings in the pesto sauce and serve with sliced lemons.

No. 7: Curry Wings

This recipe features a bit of a Tandoori taste, and allows you to use a number of different spices to get that perfect flavor. Just don't be afraid to get a little messy. The delicious taste will be worth it in the long run.

No. 8: Piri Piri Wings

If you want to know what Hot Piri Sauce is, just think "spicy spicy"; it's hot pepper sauce. If you want the recipe to be a little less spicy, just break the pepper in half and take the seeds out in the membrane; that's where most of the heat lives. Otherwise, throw the whole pepper into your food processor.

No. 9: Dry Spiced Wings

Here's a recipe every spicy food fan will love. Among the highlights featured: Chinese Five-Spice; red and green chili powder; cayenne; and cumin. 'Nuff said.

No. 10: Asian Wings

Are you a big fan of Asian food? You'll love this recipe, as it combines hoisin, oyster and fish sauce to get that incredible flavor you crave!

No. 11: Classic Buffalo Wings

Score a touchdown with this classic Buffalo Wing recipe. These crispy hot wings are made with your favorite hot suace, butter, white wine vinegar and we kick the spice level up by adding Sriracha. We serve it with creamy Blue Cheese Ranch dressing!
