It’s the most wonderful time of the year, football season. Which means it’s also one of the yummiest times of the year. From traditional Buffalo wings to veggie trays and dips, it can be tricky choosing the right tailgating or watch party snacks for your crowd. But when you blend a variety of classic game day faves into one delicious chicken wing snack board, you can be sure your guests are going to dig in. Think of it as the ultimate big game charcuterie board.

Assembling a Winning Snack Board

Everyone knows that the real MVP of tailgating or homegating is the game day spread. And we couldn’t make a winning snack board without chicken wings as the main star. Which brings us to the first step of assembling your board, choosing which type of chicken wings you want to showcase. You can choose from boneless or bone-in, or better yet, you can feature both to give your fans a nice variety. Then you’ll want to get saucy with your wings. Some of our favorite unique wing recipes are sweet and spicy chili maple chicken wings and savory coconut curry chicken wings. And you can’t go wrong with traditional Buffalo wings, sweet and tangy BBQ wings or honey Sriracha wings. If you’re looking for something baked and crispy, try these Keto Parmesan Chicken Wings. So once you’ve got your wings figured out, you’ll want to fill in the empty space on your board with some sweet and savory options like gourmet pigs in a blanket and gluten-free pretzel bites. Then, add some color and extra freshness to your board by spreading carrots, celery sticks, tomatoes, snap peas and other veggies throughout.

Touchdown Dips

Now that you know how to assemble your chicken wing snack board and cook the perfect chicken wings, it’s time to add the finishing touches. For a pro-level presentation, you’ll want to grab 2 or 3 small bowls and place them in any empty spaces left on your board. These will hold the dipping sauces for your veggies and wings. On top of must-have game day dips like ranch and blue cheese, you might try something different, like a refreshing basil parmesan yogurt dip.
