The Big Game is this weekend and I thought it would be fun to create a few fun and easy recipes for the occasion. In addition to the great football food, my kids thought it would be fun to think up some fun games we could play while the game is on. Since our house is divided on our favorite teams, what could be more entertaining that some fun rivalry games while the game is on?
Tyson & Kraft Super Moments.
I decided to create some easy recipes using some of my favorite Tyson Chicken products. As I was shopping at WalMart, I also found a really cool line of dipping sauces from Kraft. Tyson chicken and Kraft have paired up and created a fun site just for Game Day fun where you can get inspired to create your own Super Moments. I found some really fun ideas on Super-Moments.com and my kids were so inspired that we borrowed a few ideas and also created our own!
While I prepared our finger foods, the kids came up with some ideas for our game day fun.
- Unnecessary Dipping – you cannot double dip. The penalty for dipping is that nobody on your team (rooting for the same team as you) can dip for five minutes.
- False Start – Cannot sneak a snack before it’s been placed on the serving table. The penalty if caught is that you cannot have any more of that entree until everyone on the opposing team has had their first servings.
- In Possession of Dip – Whichever team is in possession of the ball, whoever is rooting for that team is in possession of the dip.
- Soda Shots – (for the young adults & adults only – not recommended for small kids) For every touchdown, whoever is rooting for that team gets to take a soda shot.
- The Champion – Once the team has won the game each person on your team gets to take home the entree of their choice.
Sounds fun right?

I decided to start with my favorite Tyson Chicken appetizers and add a little something to make them ideal man food, perfect for Game Day. I started with Tyson Any’tizers Boneless Buffalo Wyngz and Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries. These are both great as is, but I wanted to get a little creative. I’m a huge fan of grilled cheese sandwiches, and I love to add and embellish to sandwiches to create varieties of it. A few weeks before, I’d seen a fun idea for Grilled Cheese Roll Ups. I thought it was a genius idea, and when I picked up the bag of Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries I knew I was going to incorporate them into the roll ups. Now, as for the Tyson Any’tizers Boneless Buffalo Wyngz, my plan was to just add bacon! Both of these would go great with Kraft Dips, so I settled on Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Jalapeno Ranch for the Roll Ups. Instead of using American or Cheddar Cheese I decided on Mozzarella. I thought it would create a cool balance with the dip and would be reminiscent of Mozzarella sticks too. For the Bacon Wrapped Buffalo Chicken, I settled on the Kraft Taco Bell Spicy Ranch for the dip.
The pairings were perfect! Everyone had their own favorites, but it was unanimous that these were perfect finger foods for any Game Day party. I’d love to try some more pairings of the Kraft dips and Tyson Chicken products. There’s sure to be an endless amount of delicious ideas.
Which dips would you love to pair with your favorite Tyson product?
Chicken & Cheese Roll Ups
Here’s what you’ll need.
- 1 bag Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries
- 1 loaf of white bread
- 8 ounces of mozzarella cheese
- 1 stick butter or margarine
The Tyson Fries come with two sealed bags in the package. For this recipe you only need to use one bag, you can prepare the second and serve as-is with dip.
Prepare the chicken as instructed on the bag.
While the chicken is cooking, take a rolling pin and flatten each slice of bread as thin as you can get it.
Cut the edges off to create a square, then place a thin slice of Mozzarella cheese in the middle.
Place one cooked chicken fry on one side of the bread, and begin to roll tightly.
In a skillet, heat up a few slices of the butter or margarine over medium heat.
Place 4 or 5 roll ups, seam side down, in the skillet at a time. Being sure to turn and cook evenly until golden.
Remove from heat and stack until all roll ups have been cooked.
Serve with your dipping sauce of choice!
Bacon Wrapped Buffalo Chicken Dippers
Here’s what you’ll need.
- 1 bag Tyson Any’tizers Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wyngz
- 1 package thin sliced bacon
- plenty of toothpicks
Begin by preparing the chicken according to the package.
Instead of cooking for the recommended time, I only heated these for about 10 minutes before removing from the oven. They will continue to cook with the bacon.
Remove from oven, and begin wrapping in bacon.
Take each strip of bacon and split in half or thirds, depending on the bacon. Wrap it around the chicken, leaving a bit of room to account for shrinkage, and secure with a toothpick going all the way through the chicken to the other side.
Place back on baking sheet, with exposed chicken on the bottom of the pan.
Continue to cook at the same temperature for another 12 minutes. Turn each wrapped chicken over to the other side and cook and additional 12 minutes.
Once cooked, place chicken on a paper towel to drain.
Serve with your favorite dip of choice.
