The Super Bowl is one of the biggest venues for the home preparation (or takeout, I suppose) of chicken wings.  Learn the tips to make the best wings (and you can even make them healthier, if that’s your inclination).  There’s no limit to what you can do with recipes and sauces.  While there is conjecture about the best approach, sometimes nothing beats a classic.  Enjoy!!!

If you are a football fan (or a commercials fan), you might be watching a certain game today.  If you are having/going to a party, it’s not too late to make a tasty snack!  While this one likely won’t win any health awards, we’ve made it several times.  (We received the recipe from a friend.)  It’s quick too: Chicken Wing Dip!  While no actual chicken wings were used in the recipe, it has the flavor.

Chicken Wing Dip

1 cup ranch dressing (or blue cheese dressing)

1 cup Red Buffalo Wing sauce (any wing sauce of your choice will do)

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

2 bricks softened cream cheese

2 cups shredded cooked chicken (chicken breasts work well)

Bag of sturdy chips/crackers for dip (we use pita chips)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Set a pot of water to a roiling boil and boil chicken breasts for 20 minutes.  Break apart so chicken is shredded.

Mix all ingredients and put in a 13×9 pan.  Sprinkle extra cheddar cheese on top.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until bubbly.  Use chips/crackers for dipping.  Enjoy!
