Chicken Wings are the most popular appetizer or pub food around. Once only enjoyed in a restaurant, more and more we are making them at home and enjoying them in new and exciting ways.

From deep fried (my favorite), to making them in a slow cooker, and the less messy baked chicken wings, we can all agree they you need something to partner them with.

This is where the wing sauce recipes come into play. You don’t have to stick with the classic Buffalo sauce, you can switch it up and use a glaze or dipping sauce to add more flavor.

Ranch Dressing Variations

Ranch Dressing is the classic chicken wing dipping sauce. Whenever you order any kind of chicken wing, you are asked “Ranch or Blue Cheese?” I personally prefer ranch because it cools the heat of the buffalo sauce with its creamy texture. Here are some delicious variations on the classic Ranch Dressing.
