If you have a man in your life chances are they love things like wings, beer and pizza. While some things can be made a little healthier something cannot, so on Super Bowl Sunday I usually make up a few healthy dishes and let the guys still have their beer. Seems like a wise compromise, right?? I think so!
Well, if you’re like me you’ve had a new recipe just bomb. Like it was just bad and your whole family refuses to eat it, so I know better now and try out any new recipe well in advance of a big party or get-together like the Super Bowl.
Enter my Clean Eating Buffalo Chicken Tenders! I made these about three weeks ago on a test run and sure enough, they were a hit. Jeff was eating them, loved the kick of heat in the sauce and said these were a new favorite! Well, here’s the recipe that will surely please your football crowd this weekend.
