Fun Party Foods and Chicken Wing Dip Recipe

Tuesday, February 18, 2020
Fun Party Foods and Appetizers are always welcome even when there's no party going on!

We love to order a sampler platter sometimes at a restaurant for lunch or dinner instead of a whole meal.

Sometimes just an assortment of finger foods is the perfect solution when your not extremely hungry and have no idea what you want.

These are a few of the delicious items we love on our sampler platters to make at home when we just don't want to move on a busy night week or weekend.

They are perfect for game day, family get-togethers while watching a movie and party times.

I always pick easy ones that don't take long and still a nice variety.

I will even include an air-fried apple hand pie that is out of this world quick and easy for a dessert!

One other delicious addition to these recipes, is my Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip, scroll down to the recipe card for that recipe, it's divine and don't forget to try my Baked Artichoke and Spinach Dip!

You may remember my best potato sides dishes or a roundup of fun patriotic red white and blue holiday appetizers?

My Alternative!

We love chicken fingers, but also pulled chicken with hot sauce and so easy, just throw it in the slow cooker!

Nothing could be easier than these sliders or sandwiches when you want to feed a party-sized crowd of people!

Salads and More

We also love a great platter of salad items and build your own salad bar ideas.

This could become a finger food platter or just add some bottles of salad dressing and plastic plates to make their own creations this is one of my favorites!

More Finger Foods

The boys love sliders, my favorite to make is a miniature of my mom's Italian hamburger recipe.

Just buy those mini slider buns, mix up the burgers, fry or grill and just let them build their own burgers with condiments and assorted toppings.

I like to have pre-cooked bacon (I just microwave it) tomatoes, lettuce of loads of sliced cheeses.

This is their favorite burger recipe, check it out and they're baked, so easy peasy!

Pork Fans

The men in my family are also barbecued pork fans.

When we have a big get together, I always set the slow cooker overnight, get up in the morning to a wonderful smelling house.

Shred-it, add the barbecue sauce, leave it on warm and again build your own sandwiches!

Hey, I want to enjoy the day too and mingle with folks, so this is another easy way out.

This one always a big hit!

Bonus Recipe For Chicken Wing Dip

This dip is a creamy appetizer that is perfect for any party.

IF you have a buffalo chicken lover in the house, they are going to love this deliciously easy baked dip.

You can use leftover boneless chicken, grilled or baked boneless chicken, boiled cubed chicken, frozen chicken cubes thawed or I like to use rotisserie chicken and just pull it off the bone.

It makes the best tasting flavors in this dip.

Chicken Wing Dip

Every party has to have chicken wings of some sort.

This dip is so easy and quick, it's the complete answer to keeping you out of the kitchen frying.

A few things that make it yummier, either saute the boneless chicken breast first and season it with garlic powder, salt pepper, then shred it.

If you're in a hurry use a rotisserie chicken and take it off the bone.

I usually get one that spicy.

The seasoned chicken will make the dip more authentic in taste to regular chicken wings.

You can substitute ranch dressing instead of blue cheese and you can also use low fat for fewer calories.

We love this dip and it's the most asked for party fun food that goes first.
