Granny Tan reminded me that I hadn't shared my Super Bowl plans on the blog. I've been so caught up with Olympics menu planning! First of all I got an air popper for Christmas so I'll be having some popcorn for snacking but I'm also planning some old favorites for Super Bowl. Boneless Chicken Wings and Sweet Potato Fries.

I've blogged about boneless wings before but here's the recipe I've come up with over a few trials.

Happy Healthy Snackin' Boneless Chicken Wings
Serves 2 -3

  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 8)
  • 1/2c BBQ sauce of your choice
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 10 - 15 splashes of Tabasco (add more or less if you like it more or less spicy)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Trim any visible fat from the thighs and cut into 3 - 4 lengthwise strips. Place in a baking pan, arranging the thigh strips to look like wing pieces
  3. Mix the remaining ingredients together and pour over thighs
  4. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes
  5. Turn the oven to broil and turn the heat up to 450
  6. Take 'wings' out of pan and place on a broiling sheet (or alternately, drain off sauce into a pot if your baking pan is broiler safe. The Pyrex, glass ones are usually NOT safe for the broiler)
  7. Place 'wings' under the broiler for 2 - 5 minutes until brown and a bit crispy
  8. Meanwhile, simmer the sauce on the stove until it's reduced and thick for dipping.
Sweet Potato Fries
Serves 2 -3

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut into fries
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp mayo

  1. Heat oven to 400 (and cook them with the wings above, if you are cooking them alone, cook them at 425 for 30-35 minutes and skip the broiling part at the end)
  2. Toss sweet potato fries with the garlic powder, paprika, oregano and onion powder and drizzle with the olive oil
  3. Place on a greased cookie sheet or sheet pan
  4. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes and, if necessary broil them with the 'wings' to brown
  5. While the fries are baking, mix the ketchup and mayo for dipping.
Go Saints Go! (Although I do love me some Peyton....)
