The Allure of Chicken Wings
Chicken wings are a beloved favorite that have taken social media by storm, thanks to platforms like TikTok. It’s no surprise why they’re so popular – they’re delicious, versatile, and perfect for sharing. And what better way to enjoy them than on a Chicken Wing Charcuterie Board?
The Basics: Making Crispy Wings
The first step to creating your chicken wing board is making crispy wings. While you have various options for cooking them, using an air fryer is a game-changer. Here’s how to do it:
- 1 pound of chicken wings
- 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Your choice of dry rub or seasoning
- Preheat your air fryer to 380°F (190°C).
- In a large bowl, pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels.
- In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder, salt, black pepper, and your chosen dry rub or seasoning.
- Toss the chicken wings in the dry mixture until evenly coated.
- Place the wings in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure they’re not overcrowded.
- Air fry for about 25-30 minutes, turning the wings halfway through, until they are crispy and have reached an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
- While the wings are cooking, prepare your favorite sauces for tossing.
- Once the wings are done, toss them in your choice of sauces – buffalo sauce, BBQ sauce, honey mustard, or any other flavor you love.
The Fun Part: Assembling the Board
Now that you have your crispy wings ready, it’s time for the fun part – assembling your Chicken Wing Charcuterie Board.
Ingredients for the Board:
- Crispy chicken wings (with a variety of sauces – we used buffalo, barbeque and garlic parmesan)
- Tortilla chips (optional)
- Carrot sticks
- Celery sticks
- Snap peas (optional)
- Cherry tomatoes
- Bell peppers (variety of colors)
- Jalapeno peppers (for a spicy kick)
- Cheese cubes (these are great to add if someone doesn’t like wings)
- Blue cheese dressing and other dipping sauces
- Start by placing a large platter or board in the middle of the table. This will be the star of this board.
- Arrange the crispy chicken wings in the center of the board, making them easily accessible for everyone. Use small bowls for the dipping sauces and place them near the wings.
- Surround the wings with tortilla chips, carrot sticks, celery sticks, snap peas, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, and jalapeno peppers. The variety of colors and textures will not only make your board look enticing but also provide great options for your guests.
- Don’t forget to add cheese cubes for a delightful contrast. You can also sprinkle sesame seeds over some of the elements for extra flair.
- To complete the experience, consider including a Bloody Mary or a dry white wine as the perfect beverage pairings.
- Serve the blue cheese dressing and other dipping sauces in separate bowls around the board. This allows guests to customize their chicken wing experience.
