Your Guide To The Best Chicken Wing Recipes UK
Ready to spice up the kitchen and impress your guests? We have you covered! We’ve pieced together a guide to recreate the ultimate chicken wing experience, featuring everything from blue cheese and mild sauces to flavour-packed seasonings. So, let’s get started:
The secret to a perfectly juicy, yet gloriously flavoursome wing is the marinade. It’s always clear when you’ve put that little extra love into your prep and given plenty of time for the ingredients to infuse. Not sure where to start? Take a look at our super easy yet mouth-watering chicken wing marinade recipes!
Spicy Chicken Wings Marinade
At our flagship restaurant in Milton Keynes, we love to turn up the heat – trust us, our signature Joker sauce comes with a warning – so it was only fair that we started with a spicy chicken wings marinade.
Creating the perfect spicy marinade is all about fusing heat with a subtle smokey taste, and this recipe gets it just right! Simply mix paprika, cayenne pepper, ginger and garlic powder with your favourite hot sauce (sriracha is always a winner) and a dash of olive oil. Balance the flavours to taste, rub over your chicken and leave to marinade for around two hours.
Salt & Pepper Chicken Wings Marinade
A home-cooked favourite that had our stomachs rumbling just watching the tutorial video from Terri-Ann’s Kitchen! The secret behind this salt and pepper chicken recipe is the flavourful marinade of thyme lemon, bay salt, black pepper and soy sauce. She also applies an optional green seasoning sauce and uses similar ingredients for the garnish (with peppers, spring onions, garlic and butter).
Allow the chicken to marinate in the fridge for half an hour before covering the chicken in cornstarch and frying it in vegetable oil. Once cooked, fry the ingredients together for the garnish and toss the cooked chicken in with it for the perfect dish.

Tandoori Spiced Chicken Wings Marinade
The Love Of Spice’s YouTube channel is a heated haven for beautiful spicy recipes, and they don’t disappoint with their tandoori-style chicken wings either! These spicy, succulent wings are an iconic appetiser for your next gathering.
Yoghurt, salt, lemon juice, ginger-garlic paste, garam masala, tandoori masala, coriander powder and cumin all come together to coat the chicken in a creamy marinade before being oven or air fried.

Cajun Chicken Wings Marinade
Another tasty recipe promising the boldest of flavours is this cajun chicken wings marinade by The Wolfe Pit. Crispy on the outside but tender on the inside, these wings are guaranteed to beat those savoury cravings.
The recipe combines sweet paprika, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano and cayenne pepper before generously sprinkling the mixture over oiled chicken wings. The longer you can marinade in the fridge, the better. Check out the video below for cooking instructions:
Chilli & Lime Chicken Wings Marinade
For a zingy twist on our more fiery recipes, we bring you this delicious chilli and lime chicken wings marinade by My Kitchen Love.
The instructions couldn’t be more straightforward – mix chilli powder, garlic powder, fresh minced garlic, lime juice and zest, salt and olive oil before adding a couple of tablespoons of honey for subtle sweetness. And even better, this recipe can easily be altered to make a tasty glaze for your wings – simply remove the fresh garlic and olive oil!

If like us, you love your wings not only seasoned but also coated in a generous helping of sticky sauce, then these recipes are for you. From classic flavours to sauces with an international twist, let’s take a closer look at our top chicken wing sauce recipes:
BBQ Sauce For Chicken Wings
BBQ wings are always a fan favourite, and it’s no surprise why! Tangy and sweet with a touch of smokey flavour, when it comes to BBQ wings, you have no choice but to get stuck in – there’s a reason why we serve ours with gloves at our restaurant in Milton Keynes!
Our favourite twist on the classic BBQ sauce recipe for chicken wings is to mix barbecue and bourbon (yes, bourbon), along with salt and pepper, before pouring it over your chicken wings. These wings will need slow-cooking on high until cooked through for around 2.5 to 3 hours for maximum flavour, before covering in this delicious sauce.

Chicken Wings In Buffalo Sauce
You didn’t think that we’d dedicate a blog to chicken wings and not mention buffalo sauce, did you? An all-time winner at our restaurant and sports bar in Milton Keynes, we have created four signature Wing Kingz buffalo sauces ranging from mild to extra hot. And while we’re not quite ready to share our secret recipe just yet, you’ll be pleased to know that you can make your own version from home using Frank’s RedHot® sauce.
Homemade chicken wings in buffalo sauce are a little different from our other recipes as your ingredients will need to infuse together in a pot over a medium heat. You will need butter, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt and, of course, your hot sauce. Take a look at All Recipes for more details!
Chicken Wings With Peanut Sauce
The Cookie Rookie’s recipe is giving us all the cravings with their delicious recipe for Thai chicken wings with peanut sauce. Peanut sauce is the perfect selection for those with a sweet tooth while also balancing it out with a slight hint of bitterness with each bite. A winner when poured over skewered meats and chicken wings, peanut sauce also makes for a great dipping sauce on the side for fresh vegetables or other side dishes.

Blue Cheese Sauce For Chicken Wings
Blue cheese sauce doesn’t just belong in the American diners – who here doesn’t love a side of blue cheese dip with their wings?
A great side serving for any sports game showing, the blue cheese sauce also goes well with other snacks (we’re thinking celery sticks and lots of fries). A beautifully crafted combination of buttermilk, soured cream, garlic, blue cheese and sweet paprika will give you the perfect blend of sweet and savoury.

Ranch is another easy one to create if you’re low on time: it’s made from a quick mix of mayonnaise, soured cream, dried parsley, dill, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, milk, lemon juice (milk and lemon juice are an alternative to buttermilk) and salt to taste. A creamy sauce that is not only perfect for chicken wings but also for a range of other side snacks that you might be serving, ranch really is one of the most versatile sauces for your next sports viewing party.
