Chicken wings are the perfect appetizer for game day. What’s even better than that is a Chicken Wing Charcuterie Board!
This board is filled with chicken wings, multiple sauces, vegetables and cheese. You can fill up your charcuterie board with all of your favorite things.
It’s a genius idea and your guests will be so impressed!
I bought a 3 lb. bag of frozen wings and cooked them in my air fryer. Wings in the air fryer come out so crispy and delicious.
The only bad thing about the air fryer is you have to cook the wings in batches. You don’t want to overcrowd the basket or the chicken wings won’t get crispy.
You can also bake the wings in the oven. This is my second favorite way to cook them since you can make them all at once.
Another option is to make the wings in the Instant Pot. It’s actually a two step process because I end up putting the wings under the broiler to crisp them up.
I chose to season my wings with a dry rub. It gave the wings a delicious flavor in case people didn’t want to add sauce, but it also wasn’t overpowering in case they did add sauce.
Next I wanted to figure out which sauces to add to my Chicken Wing Charcuterie Board. The first sauce I chose was a basic buffalo sauce. I figured it would be a sauce most people like.
My second choice was ranch. This one served two purposes – it can be used with the wings or the vegetables.
The third sauce I used was honey mustard. I mainly chose this sauce because my daughter has become obsessed with honey mustard. I poured the dressings into three small bowls.
A few more options would be blue cheese dressing or an Asian dipping sauce.
Let’s talk veggies. No Chicken Wing Charcuterie Board would be complete without carrots and celery. I feel like they go hand in hand with chicken wings. I also added cucumber to my board.
You could also add bell peppers, cherry tomatoes or snap peas.
Once you start filling up your wooden board you might have more spaces to fill in. I decided to add Colby jack cheese as a filler. It also paid homage to the OG charcuterie board. 🙂
More good filler options would be pickles, olives, nuts, chips or crackers. The sky’s the limit when it comes to charcuterie boards!
The great thing about a charcuterie board is you can get most of it ready ahead of time. I had all of my vegetables and cheese cut up and ready to go. The sauces take about 30 seconds to pour into the bowls. All that’s left to do is cook the chicken wings.
Filling up the board is my favorite part, I love when you see it coming together. I start by adding the three sauce bowls.
Next I add the chicken wings in two separate areas. Then I started adding the vegetables. Once that was done I used the cheese to fill in any open areas.
All that’s left to do after that is to let your guests dig in!
- 3 lbs. cooked chicken wings
- 3 types of dipping sauce (I used buffalo wing sauce, ranch and honey mustard)
- 3-4 types of vegetables (I used baby carrots, celery and cucumber)
- Any extras (I used Colby jack cheese)
Place the dipping sauces on the board.
Add the chicken wings to two different areas of the board.
Fill in the rest of the space on the board with vegetables and cheese.
