Broiled Chicken Wings 

Broiled chicken wings are a great dish that get the skin crispy. Treating the chicken with a glaze can add even more flavor to the dish which can please any crowd. Broiling does not require any extra oil, so it also makes the dish a bit healthier than if you were to deep fry the wings. You also do not have to add any extra breading, which cuts down on calories and carbs.
