Easy Game Day Spread Idea!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson® Foods, Inc. The opinions and text are all mine.

Hey All!

As you all know, I’m the hostess with the mostess. Football season is a great time to entertain and this year I’ve decided I want to make our game day viewing parties a little easier thanks to some help from my Tyson® Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips, Tyson® Any’tizers® Popcorn Chicken, and Tyson® Chicken Nuggets. These three products make the perfect group of ingredients to create a spread of food to feed your visiting crowd of sports fans.

Having a simple spread of appetizers is a great way to keep your friends and family entertained and their stomachs satisfied this football season.

I of course got these at my home away from home, Target. You can find your nearest Target using the Target Store Locator.

You need to know where your closest store is so you can run out and buy these!

I love Tyson chicken products because their chickens are raised with no antibiotics ever, have no antibiotics ever, are made with white meat, have a crave-worthy flavor, and are an easy to make protein-packed snacks

Since I always like to be different in everything I do, I decided I wanted to do a few recipes with these chickens for my game day spread. I made some Pesto Basil Mozarella Chicken Sliders with the Tyson Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips, some Popcorn Chicken and Waffle Bites with the TysonAny’tizers® Popcorn Chicken, and some Nuggets with Marinara Dipping Sauce with the Tyson Chicken Nuggets.

Here’s how to put it all together for your own game day spreads!

  • Pesto Basil
  • Mozzarella
  • Mini Rolls
  • Tyson Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips
  • Toaster Waffles
  • Small Circle Cookie Cutter
  • Tyson Any’tizers® Popcorn Chicken
  • Marinara Sauce
  • Tyson Chicken Nuggets
  • Waffle Fries
  • Party Skewers
  • Maple Syrup

First you heat up your Tyson Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips, Tyson Any’tizers® Popcorn Chicken, and Tyson Chicken Nuggets according to the package instructions. Baked them until fully cooked.

To make the sliders you place one of the Tyson Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips on top of a split in half mini roll.

You then add some pesto basil to the chicken strip.

Followed by some mozzarella cheese.

Place the top of the mini roll half on top and place it back in the oven for a few minutes for the cheese to melt.

That’s all you have to do to make the sliders.

To make the popcorn chicken and waffles you simply take a piece of your cooked Tyson Any’tizers® Popcorn Chicken and place it on top of a mini waffle.

You make the mini waffle by toasting some toaster waffles and using a small circle cookie cutter to cut them out.

After you’ve placed your popcorn chicken on top of a mini waffle, you put a party skewer through it to keep it together.

Your guests can pick them up with the skewer as well. You can drizzle them with maple syrup like I did, or you place a little bowl of maple syrup next to them, so that your guests can dunk them into. That’s all you have to do to make the popcorn chicken and waffle bites.

And last but not least, you can take some nuggets and pair them with some marinara sauce. Your guests can dip your nuggets into the sauce and enjoy!

If you have any chicken left from each bag after you’ve made all your viewing party treats, you can place it on the platter with the nuggets for people to eat and also dip into the marinara sauce.

Who doesn’t love to dunk a yummy piece of chicken into marinara sauce?

I know I do!

When you present this spread to your guests at your own game day parties, I guarantee they will love it and gobble it all up! It probably won’t even last until half-time.

Don’t forget to add a side of waffle fries for your game day spread! It goes perfectly with everything we’ve shown today!

I hope you love these game day treats as much as I do!
