Are you hosting an event this Sunday for the Big Game? Maybe you thought about it but you don’t have time to cook. We are sharing Game Day Buffet Ideas using Prepared Deli Wings. Yes prepared chicken wings from the deli. I am not biased about wings but having a husband from Buffalo, NY things can get a little hairy.

When we were first married he prepared some wings at the house and it stunk up the house for a few days. We later got a deep fryer (outdoor kind) and he prepared wings outside for a big game a few years ago. However, my puppy decided to lick all the oil he left outside and what a mess that became. Needless to say the only chicken wings coming into this house for now on, are prepared wings.


As I was heading to the frozen section to pick out some wings, I passed the Deli Section at Walmart and saw they had prepared deli wings displayed. . Hello, this is a no brainer, not only are they prepared, but they come in different flavors. I chose the Pick Three Bucket, and received 1 pound of each hot wing variety: Boneless general Tso’s, Bone-in hot wings and Buffalo style.


I knew I had to come up with some fun dips for these as well, at least for the General Tso’s since this was a new flavor wing for our home. How about a spicy Mango dip to offset the traditional Blue Cheese and Ranch we will be serving…

If you have never cut up a mango it is super easy and should not be intimidated at all.


For the Game Day Buffet I made these free Game Day Printables so you can label the different prepared wings and sauces.

Making entertaining easy is one of our goals at our house. We would not entertain so much if we did not get some semi-homemade items to fill in the gaps.


Of course no one wanted to leave the game we were watching to go upstairs to get food, good thing this buffet is portable as well.


Your guests have a choice of fresh wings and sauces to choose from which makes you look like the hero in all this. 


We used stadium style plates and I cut off plastic cups so folks could add their sauces on the side if they wished. Personally I enjoyed the Boneless General Tso’s Wings with the mango sauce. The family preferred the traditional wings, good thing I bought the Pick Three option
