What is a charcuterie board?

A charcuterie board is a spread of cured meats, cheeses, fruits, nuts, condiments, and other complementary items.

“Charcuterie” refers to the art of prepping and assembling cured and smoked meats. However, most charcuterie boards that happen these days include a variety of items beyond just meats.

A few key components you’ll find on a typical charcuterie board include: cured meats, cheeses, crackers, bread, fresh and dried fruit, nuts, pickles, olives, condiments & spreads, and garnishes.

Charcuterie boards are meant to be customized to the season and shared as an appetizer at social gatherings.

How to make chicken wings

There are various ways to make chicken wings. One way isn’t inherently better than others and really just depends on your personal preference.

The most common ways to make chicken wings are:

The air fryer, oven, and deep frying will all give you that crispy exterior. If you’re looking for a more tender, sticky type wing, the crockpot is probably your best bet.

We have recipes for all of those options!

Choosing chicken wings for your party platter

The key to having a really great chicken wing party platter is to include a variety of wings. That means having options that are spicy, some that are sweet, some that are saucy, and some that are a dry rub.

You can also have a variety when it comes to traditional vs. boneless wings. Having both will give your guests options to choose from. Some will even grab one of each!

I recommend going with a variety of spice levels and a variety of options when it comes to sauced, dry rub, and bone-in/boneless.

Some guests may not enjoy a hot spicy wing, while others may only want the spicy ones.

If you’re looking for a really great dry rub for wings, this chicken rub is perfect.

Ingredients for your chicken wing bar

Wings: The most important part! You’ll need a variety of wings in various flavors, sauces, and textures. Try to include both sweet and spicy options.

Dipping Sauce: You can’t forget the dips and sauces. Whether you’re including ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, or any other dip, you want to give options for your guests. You want to include both dips for the wings and dips for the veggies.

Vegetables: I like to include the wing classics of celery and carrots. You can include others like sliced bell peppers, tomatoes, and radishes as well.

Extras: Anything you can think of that might pair well with the wings. Sometimes I like to include soft pretzel bites, pickles, and blue cheese crumbles.

Chicken Wings Flavors

The goal is going to be to provide a real variety of flavors to your guests. I like making sure I have both sauced and dry rub, as well as both boneless and bone-in.

Try to serve a variety of both crispy wings and sauce covered wings.

Some of my favorite chicken wing recipes are:

Chicken Wing Sauces

While some of your chicken wings might already have sauce on them, it’s good to include some dipping sauces on your party platter.

Sometimes sauces will help enhance the flavor and others help add flavor and cool down some of the heat. Plus, they give a great option for dipping the vegetables on the board!

Some great sauces to include are:

how to make a chicken wings party platter

First, you’ll need to get a board. I like using an extra large charcuterie board to give enough room for a variety of wings.

Next, add your dipping sauces to smaller bowls or ramekins and add those in various spots on the board.

Once you’ve placed your dips and sauces, add a small pile of each flavor of wings around the board. I like to offer at least 5 different flavors of wings in a variety of spice levels and sauces.

Fill the empty spaces with stacks of veggies and and extras. I like adding in some blue cheese crumbles and pickles.

Top Tip

A great way to make a lot of different wings with minimal work is to make a big batch of dry seasoned wings and then toss a few of each into various sauces to add to your board.

Serving a chicken wing platter

One of the biggest things to consider when serving a chicken wing platter is napkins. I like providing people with a small plate along with either napkins or wet wipes. If you’re serving a lot of wings covered in sauce, individual wet wipes might be a great option.

Be sure to include tongs so that your guests can grab wings without getting sauce on their fingers and transferring it to the other wings and vegetables.

Don’t forget to provide small spoons for the dipping sauces!

FAQs about chicken wings

How many wings do I need for 20 adults?

If the wings are part of an appetizer, you can plan for 6-8 wings per person. If the wings are the main dish, it’s best to plan for 10-12 wings per person.

How do you display chicken wings at a party?

I love displaying chicken wings on a charcuterie board for a party. You can also put them in individual bowls or across a full serving tray.

What are good sides for chicken wings?

Beyond the typical dipping sauces and vegetable sticks for chicken wings, there are some other great options. These include: coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, cornbread, loaded fries, guacamole and tortilla chips, fried pickles, potato salad, and fruit salad.

Can you freeze cooked chicken wings?

Cooked chicken wings freeze really well. Allow them to cool completely. Place the wings in an airtight, freezer safe container in the freezer.

They will stay fresh for up to 3-4 months.

How long do you reheat chicken wings in the oven?

Reheating chicken wings in the oven takes about 15-20 minutes.
