What to Serve with Chicken Wings FAQs
Chicken wings are typically spicy and intensely flavored, so it's great to pair them with other flavorful foods as well as one or two milder ones. I personally love pairing them with one spiced side like elote or corn ribs, and one milder side like mashed potatoes or salad. If you're serving wings as a finger food for a cookout or game day, I suggest pairing them with other finger foods like fries, corn ribs, and stuffed mushrooms!
