Looking for ideas for what to serve with chicken wings? Intrepid eaters continue on, we have 11 delicious side dishes you can combine with your wings.
Chicken wings are perhaps the king of appetizers. What makes chicken wings so irresistible? Maybe it’s the combination of crispy skin, juicy chicken, and a rich, creamy sauce. Maybe it is the whole experience. Wings are so delicious that we often serve them as a whole meal, but there are some incredible side dishes that go with this favorite.
Check out these top side dishes for chicken wings.
1. Stuffed peppers
How about stuffed peppers? These Bad Boys are hot and cheesy and go well with chicken wings.
Since the wings are probably fried, pair them with something less greasy. So instead of traditional jalapeño poppers, why not cook stuffed peppers?
Plus, you don’t have to worry about it getting too hot. Cooked peppers are not as hot as raw peppers, so they are edible. And if you stuff them with cheese and bacon, those flavors balance out the spiciness of the peppers.
Dips are a great side dish for chicken wings as a standalone, but also go great with fries or onion rings. Chicken wings go great with virtually all kinds of dips.
Whether you want something cooling and delicious, or something with fire and punch. There will be a dip for everyone.
3. Onion rings
Even the toughest kids won’t say no to onion rings. Like chicken wings, they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
That’s probably why these two fingers make a nice pair. Serve baked or fried onion rings at your next party and your guests will thank you.
4. Fried rice
Rice is a staple in many Asian cuisines, so it can only be served with Asian style chicken wings. Roasted or steamed, it is the perfect addition to your meal.
5. Corn bread
Cornbread is a popular side dish, but pairing it with chicken wings is not as common. I honestly don’t know why many people haven’t tried it yet, because it tastes great with wings!
It has a subtle sweetness that contrasts nicely with the salty flavors of the chicken wings. You can even take it to the next level by making your own creamy, buttery concoction on corn bread.
6. Macaroni and cheese
Don’t you love things that are both delicious and easy to make? As far as side dishes go, macaroni and cheese is a beloved classic, and for good reason.
The combination of crispy, juicy chicken and thick, velvety, cheesy pasta is absolutely perfect. Best of all, it only takes a few minutes, whether you do it from scratch or pour from a can.
7. Pasta salad
It’s creamy, delicious, filling and very easy to make! Combine cooked elbow noodles, mayonnaise, hard boiled eggs, mustard, shredded chicken and vegetables of your choice. Best served chilled.
8. Potato salad
This is definitely one of the most common side dishes with chicken wings. It goes very well with chicken wings. It’s rich, satisfying, and phenomenal. The combination of warm wings and cold potato salad also creates a pleasant contrast that delights the taste buds.
To make potato salad, use potatoes with a russet, white or red skin. Cook them for 20 minutes and cut them into pieces. Mix with mayonnaise, lettuce and buttermilk and season with salt and pepper. You can also add onions and celery for extra flavor.
9. French fries
You’re probably already thinking of fries with chicken wings, but if fries are already so delicious, why not take this classic dish to the next level? There are many ways to prepare fries in a new way. One is sour cream, cheese, minced meat, jalapenos, and everything else! Think of it as nachos, but use chips instead of fries.
Chicken wings are very rich, so it’s good to balance them with vegetables. Coleslaw is another classic side dish that goes well with wings.
But why not try a different sauce this time? You can try some natural greek yogurt. Some people find classic mayonnaise too creamy for their taste buds, especially when paired with another rich dish. The dressing gives a nice fresh taste to your salad that goes well with any wing. It is also much healthier than conventional clothing. Very easy to make!
11. Corn on the cob
The corn on the cob, grilled to perfection and covered in butter, is simply divine. But if you don’t have a grill, don’t worry. You can still enjoy corn on the cob by boiling it.
Add a couple of big chunks of salted butter and bite right in.
Celery and carrot sticks are already common, but what can I say? This is the most common side dish to chicken wings! You can also add other vegetables such as cucumber, radishes and asparagus. The key is to use vegetables that are crunchy. It’s better with a blue cheese sauce.
