Who loves a decadently-decorated, ready to dive into cheese board? Apparently everyone. These days you can barely skim through your Instagram feed without seeing one and liking, liking, liking. So what happens when you take baked chicken wings and draft them as the standard board’s starting player. THIS!
This recipe is brought to you by Kroger
Today we’re taking the concept of everyone’s favorite cheese board and putting it into game-day chicken wing overdrive that starts with a crispy baked chicken wing recipe that’s then dressed in four different sauces and teamed up with all the dippers for a chicken wing platter that’s sure to score.
We all know the game-day tailgate drill.
Decide on a menu that’s easy-ish to transport.
Hustle to the grocery store to get the shopping done.
Start cooking. Realize you forgot something.
Head back to the store.
Look at the clock and wipe the sweat from your brow.
Finish cooking. Pack up the food. Freak out that everyone else isn’t ready to leave yet. (because they’re waiting for you. Doh.)
Swing back by the store for ice for the cooler.
Hope that nothing spills in the car on the way over.
Unpack. Set-up. Wish you’d remembered the paper towels to clean up the car.
Really, really wish for that beer but the chip dish needs a refill first.
The game’s about to start and we already have go to our seats? But we haven’t even gotten started yet!
guys. Guys. GUYS! Game day feasting doesn’t have to go down that way. It’s why I have a new favorite way to enjoy my tailgate festivities, and it all starts at home.
Introducing the game-day homegate party, where it’s easy to prep for, and do I dare say actually become an enjoyable event to cheer, jeer, drink your beer all in the comfort of your own home. Or better yet, at a friends (and leave the clean-up for them to do later!)
