If this year is anything like last year, about 19 million Canadians will be tuning in on Sunday to watch at least some of NFL Super Bowl 50. Of course that means lots of folks will be serving up the perennial game day favourite – chicken wings. We love wings, especially spicy ones, but there’s much more to choose from when it comes to supper on Super Bowl Sunday. Here are a few ideas.
If Sunday’s weather forecast holds true, you can get out your grill and cook up game day burgers. Fans of Buffalo Wings will recognize the flavours and the heat in these Buffalo Chicken Burgers. If spicy isn’t your thing, try Italian Burgers served on garlic bread.
One Pot Chicken Pasta not only makes clean-up easy, it can be cooked ahead of time. When the game’s on, just reheat it in the microwave or oven, and serve.
White Chicken Chili is another one pot meal . Made without tomatoes, this chili gets big flavour from jalapenos, lime, cumin, coriander and oregano.
Tacos, like these Classic Chicken Tacos and Chicken Portabella Soft Tacos, are another quick and easy choice for game day. The slicing and dicing can be done before the game starts and it doesn’t take long to cook the chicken. When it’s time to eat, set everything out and let folks customize and assemble their own tacos.
