What Goes with Chicken Wings? 40 Sides to Serve At Your Next BBQ
You’re craving chicken wings. (Same here, TBH.) But unless you eat, like, 30 of them, it’s not exactly a full meal. Luckily, they don’t need to be served solo. If you’re wondering what goes with chicken wings, we have 40 side dishes to serve at your next BBQ that transform them into a well-rounded dinner.
1. Avocado ‘Fries’
They're creamy, crunchy and straight-up life-changing. Dip them in ranch and thank us later.
2. Greek Wedge Salad
The classic dish is wonderfully simple, but all that bacon and blue cheese...oof. This Greek-inspired rendition of the wedge salad is much lighter.
10. Swedish ‘Pizzasallad’ Cabbage Slaw
Tangy, crunchy and delicious. The dressing doesn't have a drop of mayo. Instead, it's made with lots of white wine vinegar and dry spices.
13. All-Green Crudités Basket
We give you full permission to polish off the whole spread yourself (with lots of ranch dressing or yogurt dip, of course).
15. Crispy Roasted Artichokes
23. Pimento Cheese Stuffed Shishito Peppers
Pairing these with hot wings is a spice lover's dream. Think of these handhelds as elevated jalapeño poppers.
24. Roasted Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese
Picky eaters beware: You won't even notice the cauliflower florets swimming in white cheddar cheese sauce and gemelli pasta.
25. Slow-Cooker Garlic Herb Mashed Cauliflower
In a word, yum. Believe it or not, you won't even miss the spuds.
28. Sugar Snap Pea Salad with Chèvre Ranch
Ready in 15 minutes. (Really.) Feel free to make a second batch of chèvre ranch dressing for the chicken wings, if you feel so inclined.
30. Loaded Baked Potato ‘Chips’
Adios, potato skins. These little guys are so much easier to prepare (and a million times crispier).
33. Zucchini Rice
Oh, you’re still eating regular rice? All you need is a box grater to whip up this grain-free alternative.
40. Baked Sweet Potato Fries
When in doubt, you can never go wrong with fries. Since sweet potatoes are higher in fiber than white potatoes, they'll make your chicken wing dinner way more satiating.
