Healthy Football Sunday Recipes

What better way to get some meal prep done with food that you make for FOOTBALL SUNDAY! Nothing I enjoy better than being snuggled under a blanket, eating food and watching football!

Here are three things we are making for this weeks game that I plan to make extra to have during the week:

  1. Air Fried Chicken Wings - great to have to pick the chicken off to add to a salad

  2. Everything but the bagel veggies dip - great PROTEIN packed snack during the day

  3. Chili - great to reheat for lunch or dinner

Air Fried Chicken Wings

- Ingredients

o 1-2lb of chicken wings (dependent on how many people)

o Dry mix

o Wet mix if desired (BBQ sauce, teriyaki sauce, etc.)

1. Pat dry chicken wings (remove as much moisture as possible – will also help the chicken have crispy skin)

2. Toss and coat chicken wings with DRY mixture (you can use a simple mixture like – salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder with a little bit of baking powder)

3. Place chicken wings in basket and evenly space out

4. Drizzle olive oil over chicken wings

5. 390 degrees for 12-15 mins per side

6. BONUS – if you want to have the flavor be BBQ, garlic Parmesan, etc. – mix wings after they are cooked in a mixing bowl!
