When it comes to serving up chicken wings for a party, you’re looking for something that’s easy, delicious, and doesn’t take much time.
If you’re like me, you want the food at your party to be fun, but you also want it to be simple.
After all, you’ve got other things on your mind: making sure that the kids are having a blast, keeping an eye on the guests who are drinking too much—you know how it is!
That’s why I love these 24 easy party foods.
They’re perfect for serving with wings when you need something fast and filling that everyone will love.

What Goes with Chicken Wings for A Party?
The best thing to go with chicken wings for a party is another favorite finger food, the corn dog. Corn dogs are easy to make, and they’re also easy to eat—they come on a stick, so there’s no need for utensils. They’re also delicious, so they’ll pair well with the chicken wings.
The thing is, I’m always looking for easy party foods.
When I’m planning a get-together, it’s important to me that I serve food that people will love (and ask for seconds of) AND that doesn’t require a lot of effort on my part.
Also, you don’t want your guests running out of food halfway through the night.
And you don’t want them drinking too much alcohol before dinner—that can lead to some uncomfortable conversations later on… not to mention some embarrassing moments you’d rather not remember.
The recipes below are all delicious, but they’re also easy enough that they won’t take up all your time in the kitchen before the party even starts!
So, if you’re wondering what to serve with wings at a party, then keep scrolling!
24 Foods that Go with Chicken Wings for A Party
1. Corn Dogs
This is a great party dish. I like to make it in just a few steps, and then serve it with lots of napkins!
Here’s how to do it:
- First, take a package of frozen corn dogs and bake them according to the package directions. You’ll know when they’re ready because they’ll be golden brown and smell delicious!
- Next, take the corn dogs out of the oven and immediately dip them into melted butter.
- Then roll them in shredded Parmesan cheese.
- Finally, place the corn dogs on a serving tray or platter with plenty of napkins nearby for your guests to use as they eat!
2. Cornbread Muffins
I think these cornbread muffins are the perfect finger food to serve alongside chicken wings at your next party.
They’re super easy to make, and they go great with the sweet and spicy kick of chicken wings.
How I Like To Make This Dish:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a muffin tin or line with paper cupcake liners.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the milk and eggs to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined (do not over-mix). Stir in the can of creamed corn and chopped sweet peppers.
- Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins about two-thirds full. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving warm or at room temperature with your favorite side dishes!
When serving these cornbread muffins, I like to cut them into little squares or rectangles so that people can pick up one piece at a time without making too much of a mess on their plate or lap.
This way everyone can have their fill without any fuss or muss (or butter!).
3. Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
Fried mozzarella cheese sticks are so easy to make, and they go well with any party snacks!
I like to make them in just a few steps:
- Cut the cheese sticks into bite-sized pieces.
- Coat them with flour, then dip them in an egg wash and coat them with bread crumbs or crushed cornflakes.
- Fry them up in hot oil until golden brown on each side, then drain on paper towels!
I would serve them as part of a buffet alongside other finger foods like chicken wings and potato skins, which is what I’d do at a party where I was serving both types of food.
4. Veggie Platter
I love this veggie platter because it’s so easy to make and looks beautiful on any table.
If you’re serving chicken wings with it, the contrast of colors and textures is really striking.
The contrast of flavors is also great: crunchy carrots, sweet peppers and cucumbers, soft tomatoes and creamy feta cheese.
It’s a meal that can be eaten as an appetizer or a main course!
Here’s how I like to make it:
- I slice all my veggies into bite-sized pieces and put them in separate bowls (so my guests can pick their own).
- Then I put them all together on one big tray with some fresh herbs sprinkled over top.
- Finally, I top each bowl with a piece of crumbled feta cheese before serving!
5. Homemade Extra Crispy Onion Rings
Onion rings are a great addition to any party.
They’re a great finger food, and they go well with chicken wings, as long as you don’t mind the extra greasiness.
Here’s how I like to make them:
- First, heat up your deep fryer or pan so that it’s nice and hot.
- Then, cut the onion into rings, but take care not to cut through the root end of each ring—that way you’ll be able to keep them together while they’re frying!
- Dip each ring into flour, then dip it into beaten egg (if you want).
- Finally, roll each floured piece of onion in breadcrumbs and place on a paper towel-lined plate before frying!
- When everything is ready, fry for about 2 minutes on each side until golden brown.
- Then drain on paper towels before serving alongside your favorite chicken wings!
6. Italian Cream Cheese Stuffed Celery
Italian cream cheese stuffed celery is perfect because it’s easy to make, tastes delicious, and can be served in a bunch of different ways.
Here’s how I like to make this dish in just a few steps:
- Start by washing your celery stalks and then cutting them into bite-sized pieces.
- Next, mix together some Italian dressing and cream cheese until it’s nice and smooth.
- Then fill each stalk of celery with the mixture until they’re all full—don’t overstuff them or they won’t stay closed when you serve them! (You can even use toothpicks if you need something to hold them together.)
- Now it’s time for the fun part! Once your stalks are filled with cream cheese mixture, put them on a plate and serve them alongside your favorite chicken wings for an easy appetizer that everyone will love!
7. Crispy Fried Zucchini
For a quick, easy finger food, I love crispy fried zucchini.
You can make it in just a few steps, and they look so cute!
How I Like To Make This Dish:
- Cut the ends off of the zucchini and slice them into 1/4 inch slices
- Heat up oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 degrees.
- Place the zucchini slices in the hot oil and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
How I Would Serve Them:
I like serving these with my wings because they are both fried foods that go well with beer!
They’re also great for parties because they’re easy to make and can be made in advance for guests who want to snack on something while waiting for dinner to be served.
8. Bacon-Wrapped Dates
I love bacon. I also love dates.
So I thought: why not put them together?
Bacon-wrapped dates are a great finger food for a party, because they’re easy to make, they’re delicious, and they go great with your chicken wings.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Cut off the ends of the dates and take out the pit. Make sure you don’t cut too deep or you’ll end up with a messy date roll!
- Wrap each date in half a piece of bacon (you can overlap them if you need to). If your bacon is already cooked when you buy it—which is totally fine!—you’ll just want to make sure that it’s not too hot before wrapping up your date rolls.
- Put the date rolls on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper (as long as it’s not too greasy), and bake them for about 15 minutes at 350°F (180°C). They should be crispy but still soft inside when they come out of the oven—and that’s how you know they’re done!
9. Jalapeno Poppers
I love jalapeno poppers.
They are so easy to make and they’re just so much fun to eat!
I usually make them with cream cheese, but you can also use goat cheese if you want to add a little extra kick.
Here’s how I like to make them:
- First, I get a bag of jalapeno peppers and cut them in half from top to bottom. Then I scoop out the seeds and veins with a spoon.
- Next, I fill each half with cream cheese and top it with shredded cheese (cheddar or pepper jack).
- Finally, I bake them for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until they’re golden brown on top and bubbling hot inside.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it in advance—I like to make it the day before our party so that all we have to do is pop them in the oven before our guests arrive!
I usually serve them with some celery sticks and ranch dressing as well as some additional dips like salsa or guacamole so people can mix up their own combos on their plates if they like.
10. Pigs in A Blanket
Pigs in a blanket are always a crowd-pleaser, and they’re easy to make ahead of time.
If you’re planning on serving them at a party, I’d suggest making them the day before and storing them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them.
You can heat them in the oven or just pop them in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
I usually serve mine with a side of ranch or blue cheese dressing, but if you want something more kid-friendly, go with ketchup or mustard.
11. Stuffed Mushrooms
Stuffed mushrooms are a great way to make finger food with a lot of flavor without having to do much cooking or cutting.
If you’re planning on serving them at a party, I would recommend making them ahead of time and then reheating them just before serving.
You can also make them in advance, freeze them, and then thaw them out before serving.
Here’s how I make stuffed mushrooms in a flash:
- First, I take my mushrooms, remove the stems and gills, and slice them in half.
- Then I stuff them with cheese (I like mozzarella) and wrap them in bacon.
- My oven is already hot from cooking the chicken wings so I throw these on for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until they’re browned and crispy.
- Now that they’re cooked, it’s time to serve!
These are great as an appetizer, but also make a great side dish if you’re serving chicken wings as well (or even if you’re not).
They go well with ranch dressing or barbecue sauce—whatever your guests like best!

12. Mini Pizzas
If you’re hosting a party and want to make something that will be easy to prepare, but is also a crowd pleaser, mini pizzas are the way to go.
You can make these ahead of time, so all you have to do is pop them in the oven when your guests arrive. And they’re easy to serve as finger food!
How I Like To Make This Dish:
- Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
- Roll out some pizza dough and cut it into small rounds. (I like to use a cookie cutter!)
- Place the round on the baking sheet and top with your favorite toppings: pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, onions… whatever you like!
13. Homemade Tater Tots
Who doesn’t love tater tots?
I’ve found that they’re the perfect finger food for a party.
Here’s how I like to make them:
- First, I use a box of frozen tater tots (they come in a variety of flavors).
- Then I thaw them in a colander, run cold water over them until they’re thawed and drained, and pat them dry with paper towels.
- Then I fry them in a pan until they’re crisp on the outside (about 8 minutes).
- Finally, I put them on a platter and serve them with some dipping sauces (ketchup or ranch dressing work well).
I like having this dish at my parties because not only does it look nice when it’s served up, but it also adds an extra something special to the meal.
It’s like having potato skins without all the work!
14. Homemade Potato Chips
I’ve been a big fan of potato chips ever since I was a kid.
They were always my go-to snack when I was studying for a test, or just hanging out with friends.
I still love them as an adult—they’re crunchy, salty, and they’re just so versatile!
Here’s how I make mine:
- Cut the potatoes into thin slices (about 1/8 inch thick) using a mandolin or some other slicer.
- Soak the potato slices in cold water for about 30 minutes, then drain.
- Place the potato slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat and put them in the oven at 350 degrees F until they’re golden brown and crispy (about 15 minutes).
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving (if you can wait that long!).
15. Corn on The Cob
Corn on the cob is one of my favorite summertime side dishes, and it’s a great way to add some nutrition to your party menu. It’s quick, simple, and delicious—and it goes well with chicken wings!
To make it, all you need is a large pot of boiling water, salt, and some corn on the cob.
Here’s how to do it:
- Let the water boil (covering the pot will help it heat faster), then drop in your corn on the cobs.
- Let them cook for about 10 minutes—you can tell they’re done when they start to look translucent and feel tender when you pierce them with a fork.
- Then serve them with butter or margarine (or both!), salt, and pepper!
The butter will melt into their kernels and coat them, making them extra delicious.
16. Apple Spinach Salad
This is one of my favorite easy finger foods to serve at parties.
I love it because it has a lot of texture and flavor, but it’s easy to make.
It’s also beautiful and colorful, so it’s a great way to add color and interest to your table.
How I Make This:
- First, wash the spinach and lettuce thoroughly. Then chop them into large pieces.
- Slice up your apple into small chunks and mix with the greens in a bowl. Then add in the dressing ingredients (olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper) and toss everything together until everything is coated evenly with dressing.
- Now take some of your pre-made salad mixture and put it on top of your chicken wings for an extra punch of flavor and texture!
I love making brownies for a party.
They’re easy to make, and they go with just about anything.
Here’s how I do it:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Grease an 8×8 baking pan and set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time until well combined, then add vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda; slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until just combined (don’t overbeat).
- Spread batter into the prepared pan (it will be very thick), then bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Remove from oven and let cool completely before frosting with chocolate ganache!
18. Watermelon (Cut Into Small Cubes)
Watermelon is one of my favorite summertime foods.
It’s so refreshing and juicy, and it’s so easy to cut into cubes!
Here’s how to make this dish in just a few steps:
- First, wash your watermelon and slice it into cubes.
- Next, toss the watermelon in some salt and pepper.
- Once you have that done, heat up some oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
- Then add the watermelon cubes and cook until they are slightly golden brown on one side (about 5 minutes).
- Finally, flip them over and cook for another minute or two until they’re golden brown on the other side as well.
19. Fruit Tray (apples, Oranges, Grapes)
This is a great appetizer to serve at a party because it’s easy to make and looks great.
You can serve it as an appetizer while you’re cooking dinner or have it out on the table when guests arrive so they can snack on something while they are waiting for dinner to be ready.
How I Do This:
- Cut the apples, oranges and grapes into bite-sized pieces (the size of your thumb)
- Arrange them on a tray
- Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon (optional)
20. French Fries
French fries are the perfect side.
They’re salty, crispy and crunchy—and they pair well with the spiciness of the chicken wings.
Here’s how to do it:
- To make them, start by slicing potatoes into strips that are about 1/8″ thick (you can get a mandolin slicer to do this).
- Put them in a large bowl and fill it with cold water; let them sit for at least half an hour.
- Then drain them and pat them dry with paper towels.
- Now heat up some oil in a large pot or deep fryer until it’s about 350ºF.
- Add your fries to the oil and cook them for about 4 minutes or until they’re golden brown and crispy on both sides.
- Remove from oil with tongs onto paper towels to drain excess oil.
- Season with salt immediately after removing from oil; this will prevent them from becoming soggy when you serve them later on!
- Serve alongside some classic buffalo wings or hard-boiled eggs for an easy finger food spread!
21. Deviled Eggs With Bacon
Deviled eggs are a classic party food, but they can be a little intimidating to make.
Here’s how I make mine in just a few steps:
- Boil the eggs for 10 minutes in water.
- Take the eggs out of the water and let them cool for about 10 minutes.
- Peel the shells off and cut each egg in half horizontally so you have two white halves and two yolk halves.
- Scoop out the yolks into a bowl, add mustard, mayonnaise, salt and pepper, and mash together with a fork until combined well. This can be done ahead of time if you want to get it out of the way early on!
- Add back in some of the yolk mixture into each white half so that it makes room for all of your filling! I like to add more than just a spoonful because it makes them look fuller without making them taste too rich or heavy – but if you’re looking for something lighter than that, feel free to just add one spoonful per half instead!
- Top with bacon bits or crumbled bacon if desired (optional).
- Serve with toothpicks on the side so guests can easily pick them up off their plates.
22. Potato Skins
Potato Skins are a great finger food.
They’re easy to make, and they go well with the rich flavor of the chicken wings.
You just need a few ingredients and about 20 minutes of your time, and you’ll have a delicious snack that your guests will love.
23. Potato Salad
Potato salad is a great dish to serve at your next party.
Here’s how I make it:
- First, I put the potatoes in a pot and cover them with water.
- Then I turn on the stove and let them boil until they’re soft enough to mash up easily.
- When they’re done, I drain the water out of the pot and put the potatoes back in.
- Then I add some mayonnaise (1/2 cup for every 3 cups of potato), salt and pepper (to taste) to taste, some chopped onions (equal parts onion to potato), celery (1/2 cup for every 2 cups of potato), pickles (1 tablespoon for every cup of potato), mustard (2 tablespoons for every cup of potato), vinegar (1 teaspoon for every cup of potato), and sugar (3 teaspoons for every cup of potato).
- I stir all these ingredients together until they’re well mixed, then put them in a bowl that fits into another bowl filled with ice cubes.
- Once they’re cool enough so that they won’t melt the ice cubes too much when they sit in there while people are eating them, it’s time to serve them!
24. Pasta Salad
I love this recipe because it’s easy and super tasty.
In just a few steps, you can whip up a batch of pasta salad, which is great for getting your guests excited about eating healthy while they watch the game or catch up with friends.
And when it comes time to serve, I love to spread out some parchment paper on the table and arrange the salad in individual portions so that people can grab what they want and have fun mixing it all up together.
