11 Ways to Wing It This Memorial Day

Game day or not, if chicken wings aren't on the menu, is it really even a party? We didn't think so, either. To help you kick off your summer festivities over the coming long weekend, we've rounded up some of our favorite spicy, saucy wing recipes. Whether you throw them on the grill, in the fryer, or bake 'em in the oven, a big platter of wings might make your Memorial Day a little bit messier (be sure to have plenty of wet naps!), but will definitely make it truly memorable (you always remember the party with the really good wings, right?).
