Chicken wings are one of many popular dishes for watching a game, and as it turns out are very easy to make. You can smother these baked chicken wings in any sauce you like. This recipe is for a spicy Asian style, but any sauce will work. Buffalo sauce, lemon pepper and Korean BBQ are all fantastic options.
