There are 3 million chicken recipes on the internet. We're here to show you the good ones. Win, win.

Today: There's no game day without a side of finger-licking chicken wings. 

Game day will be here before we know it. And whether you like football or not, there's one thing that unites us all on that fateful Sunday: snacks. Game day snacks give football fans something to do with their hands when they start to get nervous; they give bored viewers an activity in between commercial breaks; and when chicken wings are on the table, they mark us all as smeared-face and sticky-fingered equals.

With crisp, spicy skin and moist, tender meat that falls off the bone, these Honey Mustard Chicken Wings will bring everyone together in praise of the pigskin. (You may want to make a double batch.)
