I have a deep and unconditional love for chicken wings. To me, wings are the perfect bar-snack and party food. I love them every way: spicy, sweet or savory. The only no-no for me is flabby skin!

Whether you decide to fry them, bake them or grill them — the three cooking methods we show you in Food Network Magazine’s booklet of 50 wings (page 168, January/February 2013 issue) — you’ll produce a perfectly crispy wing. And the options are truly limitless. Check out my sesame version below, then serve these for the big game with an Asian chili sauce like Sriracha:

Sesame: Spread wings on 2 oiled pans, season with salt and pepper. Roast at 425 degrees F until crispy, about 45 minutes. Toast 3 tablespoons sesame seeds in a dry skillet until golden. Toss hot wings with seeds and 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil and 1/4 cup chopped scallions.
