It's a mixed bag of emotions. Tom Brady and the Patriots won't be in this year's Superbowl, but you can at least eat these amazing appetizers!!
For those football parties you may or not be attending/throwing, try making this HEALTHY Buffalo Chicken Wings and Blue Cheese Dip recipe for Superbowl 2013.
5 pieces of chicken breast
2 cups bread crumbs
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 tbsp hot sauce (I used Frank’s)
Cut the chicken breasts into bite sized nuggets, and set aside. Mix breadcrumbs, cayenne, chili, and salt in a larger bowl and coat chicken pieces in this mixture. Place chicken pieces on a cookie sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes or until fully cooked. I like to turn the chicken over halfway through, through the pieces are small enough to just let cook.
When chicken is done, toss with hot sauce in a large bowl. If you want it to be crispy, you can put the bites back into the oven on high broil for 2-3 minutes. Serve with dip (below).
Meanwhile make the Blue Cheese Dip: Typically, this dip is SO bad for you, alas I have created a super healthy version for your enjoyment.
Blue Cheese Dip:
1 cup cottage cheese
1 6oz cup of plain greek yogurt
3 tbsp blue cheese crumbles (then an additional 3-5 tbsp to use later)
2 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
Use a food processor to blend all ingredients aside from the additional blue cheese. Blend well. Place in a serving bowl and add the additional blue cheese.
