Super Bowl Recipe Roundup!

Let's get something straight...

I don't watch the Super Bowl. (But I do eat FU Bowls! lol)

Why?!

I'm just not that into it. (It's just something I never got into!)

Oddly enough, I played Rugby in High School.
That's me on the far left kneeling in the red bandana.

To be completely honest...

I couldn't have told you when the Super Bowl was taking place up until recently! (It's February 5! If you didn't know this already....then you probably don't watch football either! lol)

Having said all of this...

Why then I am doing a recipe roundup for this big event?!

I don't know! (Kidding!)

It's because...

There's food involved and I've got recipes to share for those wanting to make healthier eats! (I was also given this great idea for a post via a friend of mine! Great idea don't cha think?!)

So...

If you like (love) Football, Food, or both...

Here's a list of new (and older) recipes you can make to entertain with and/or enjoy while watching the game or simply because you're hungry and want to eat something! ;)

8. Oven Baked Chicken Fingers

  • 2 Sliced Chicken Breasts (makes about a total of 6-8 fingers)
  • 4 Egg Whites or 2 whole Eggs

  • 1 cup Oatmeal
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Salt (or table salt to taste)

**You can replace the Oatmeal, Garlic Salt, Oregano, Pepper and Chili Flakes with Italian Bread Crumb Seasoning - Store bought**

Instructions:

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Mix the wet together too.

Dip your sliced Chicken into the wet mixture then the dry (make sure to evenly coat - adjust ingredients as you see fit - if you're running out that is.).

Place the coated Chicken onto a baking sheet and bake at 375F for about 15 minutes.

Turn over to cook other side.

Remove from oven when brown, crispy and cooked (no pink!).

I like dipping my Chicken Fingers in Hot Sauce. (Totally up to you!)

Never mind the rice and broccoli in this example lol
