This recipe serves up classic chicken wings in not one, but three different varities. A classic Buffalo sauce sets the pace, while a smoky barbecue sauce and Asian sesame chile sauce take us outside of our comfort zone. It'll be hard to pick your favorite, we guarantee.

Directions

For the chicken wings

Place a large grill pan over medium-high heat or heat an outdoor grill to high. Brush with olive oil to lightly coat.

In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with the 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place the wings on the grill and cook, turning occasionally, until well marked and cooked through, about 10 minutes. 

For the Buffalo sauce

Place a small saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter. Whisk in the hot sauce and heat through, stirring occasionally. Toss the wings in the Buffalo sauce and garnish with blue cheese, carrots, and celery. 

For the Asian sesame chile sauce

Place a small saucepan over medium heat and add all of the ingredients except the peanuts and the cilantro. Stir to combine and heat the sauce through, stirring occasionally. Toss with the wings and garnish with the peanuts and cilantro. 

For the smokey barbecue sauce

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine all of the ingredients and heat the sauce through, stirring occasionally. Toss wings in the sauce and serve.
