What can you serve with BBQ Ranch Chicken Wings?

How to make Crispy Ranch-Infused Game Day Wings

Prepare the Zesty Ranch Sauce:

  • In a small bowl, combine the original ranch dressing with 2 teaspoons of Our Zesty Italian Seasoning. If you want a bit of heat, add 1/2 teaspoon of Sriracha to the mixture. Stir well to ensure the seasoning is evenly distributed. Trust me on this one; it's delicious!

Prep the Chicken Wings for Crispiness:

  • Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. 

Coat the Chicken Wings:

  • Place the prepared chicken wings in a large mixing bowl. Pour the Zesty Ranch Sauce over the wings. Use a fork to mix and toss the chicken until each piece is thoroughly coated with the sauce. You can do this in batches of 5 wings at a time to ensure even coverage.

Prep the Baking Sheet and Rack:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place a wire rack on top of a sprayed cookie sheet. Arrange the coated chicken wings on the wire rack in a single layer, allowing space between each wing for optimal air circulation.

Bake the Wings for Crispiness:

  • Bake them in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. After this initial baking period, flip the wings over using tongs. Then, increase the oven temperature to 375°F (190°C) or even 400°F (200°C) for the remaining 10-15 minutes to achieve maximum crispiness. Keep a close eye on them to prevent overcooking or burning.

Optional Broiling for Extra Crispiness:

  • If you want even more crispiness, you can broil the wings for 2-3 minutes on each side after baking. This will give them a nice, caramelized exterior. Be vigilant while broiling to prevent burning.

Heat the BBQ Sauce:

  • While the wings are baking, heat the Sweet Baby Rays Hickory Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce on the stovetop over low to medium heat. Stir it occasionally to ensure it's heated evenly.

Dip and Serve:

  • Once the chicken wings are done and have reached your desired level of crispiness, remove them from the oven. Using tongs or a fork, dip each wing into the heated BBQ sauce to coat it generously.

Serve and Enjoy:

Arrange the saucy, crispy wings on a serving platter. You can garnish them with a sprinkle of extra Zesty Italian Seasoning or some chopped fresh herbs for added flavor and presentation.

Serve your Zesty Ranch BBQ Chicken Wings while they're still hot and enjoy!

Game On! Zesty Wings & Fries Party Platter

Game Day Platter Guide

Arrange the Chicken Wings:

  • Start by placing the Zesty Ranch BBQ Chicken Wings in the center of a large platter. You can shape them into a football shape if desired or simply arrange them neatly in a pile.

Position the Fries:

  • Surround the chicken wings with a generous serving of fries. You can stack them up around the wings or create a bed of fries on one side of the platter.

Serve with Dipping Sauces:

  • Place small bowls or ramekins on the platter for the dipping sauces. Fill one with your spicy mayo and another with extra ranch dressing. You can place them strategically near the chicken wings for easy access.

Garnish for Football Theme:

  • To enhance the football theme, consider garnishing the platter. You can use green lettuce or herbs to create the appearance of a football field around the wings and fries. Arrange slices of bell peppers or cherry tomatoes to resemble football yard lines or even shape a goalpost using thin strips of bell pepper.

Football Decorations:

  • If you have football-themed decorations like miniature footballs or goalposts, you can place them on the platter or around it to enhance the game day atmosphere.

Serve and Enjoy:

  • Present the platter on your game day table, and let your guests dig in. The combination of crispy wings, fries, and dipping sauces will be a hit, and the football-themed presentation adds to the fun.

Chicken Wing Variations

Spicy Buffalo Wings:

  • Replace the Zesty Italian Seasoning with cayenne pepper and paprika in the ranch sauce for a classic buffalo wing flavor. Toss the baked wings in buffalo sauce (a mixture of melted butter and hot sauce) instead of BBQ sauce.

Honey Mustard Wings:

  • Create a honey mustard sauce by mixing honey, Dijon mustard, and a touch of mayonnaise. Toss the baked wings in this sweet and tangy sauce.

  • Lemon Pepper Wings:

  • Skip the ranch dressing and use a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil, garlic powder, and cracked black pepper as a marinade for the wings. Bake them until crispy, then sprinkle with additional lemon zest and pepper.

  • Teriyaki Wings:

  • Replace the ranch dressing with a teriyaki sauce made from soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger. Toss the baked wings in the teriyaki sauce and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.

  • Garlic Parmesan Wings:

  • After baking, toss the wings in a mixture of melted butter, minced garlic, and grated Parmesan cheese. Broil them briefly to melt the cheese and create a garlic Parmesan crust.

  • Korean BBQ Wings:

  • Make a Korean BBQ sauce by combining gochujang (Korean red chili paste), soy sauce, honey, garlic, and ginger. Toss the baked wings in this flavorful sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped scallions.

  • Air Fryer Version:

  • If you have an air fryer, you can prepare the chicken wings in it for an even crispier texture. Follow the same recipe but cook the wings in the air fryer according to its instructions, usually at a higher temperature for a shorter time.

  • Different Dips:

  • Experiment with a variety of dipping sauces, such as blue cheese dressing, sriracha mayo, or a tangy tzatziki, to complement your wings.
