Tis The Season Football! That’s right it’s #Football season again and I have just the right recipes to get your head in the game! Whether you’re hosting game nights, attending tailgating parties, or just want some yummy appetizers, I’ve adapted some of my favorite recipes, so I got you covered. Seriously everyone will love the recipes, even the non-football fanatics!

First up we have the Buffalo Chicken Sliders, which I’ll be making live on Bidchat, Tuesday the 2oth at 4:00pm PT for my second episode of #WakeAndBakeC. Then we have the Chili Joe Sliders, that’s right – a twist on chili, sloppy joes, & sliders all in one dish! And finally we have the Banana Foster Milkshake which I fell in love with at one of my favorite restaurants in Vegas, Holsteins! I’m telling you, if you make these recipes for #FootballSunday you’ll be everyone’s favorite.



For the Chicken:

Chicken Breast (about 5 should do, fresh or frozen)

1 cup Buffalo Wing Sauce (I use Franks Red Hot)

1/2 (1 oz) package dry ranch salad dressing mix (or make your own from scratch, ingredients included below)

2 packs of soft dinner rolls ( I use Kings Hawaiian or Sarah Lee brand)

1 c. Moneterey jack, shredded

¼ c. gorgonzola

2 tablespoons butter

2 c. onion, diced (1/2 lg. onion)

1 c. carrots, diced (about 4)

1 c. celery, diced (about 2 stalks)

4 tbs. extra virgin olive oil, divided

For the Glaze:

8 tbs. butter

2 tbs. brown sugar

1 tbs. worcestershire

1 scallion, chopped

For Ranch Seasoning: If you choose to make it from scratch

3 tbs. dry buttermilk powder

2 tbs. dried parsley

1 and ½ tsp. dried dill

1 tsp. dried onion flakes

1 tsp. dried chives

1 tsp. black pepper

½ tsp. white pepper

1 and ½ tsp. kosher salt

Here’s Whatcha Do:

  1. Clean chicken breast. Place chicken breast in large skillet, add water so the chicken steam cooks. (You can also make chicken in a slow cooker if you have time, you’ll cook the chicken for 4-6 hours)
  2. Once thoroughly cooked remove from skillet, shred the chicken breast & return to skillet. Drizzle with 2 tbs. extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle both sides of the meat with 1 tbs. of ranch seasoning.
  3. In a separate skillet or sauce pan add 2 tbs. of olive oil along with onion, carrots, and celery. Sprinkle with 2 tbs. of ranch seasoning and saute until the onions are translucent. Add to the skillet with the shredded chicken.
  4. Add hot sauce and butter, stir to combine.
  5. Butter a baking dish and place the bottom halves of the buns in the dish.
  6. Top with the shredded chicken mixture, add the Monterey and Gorgonzola cheeses, and add the top half of the bun.
  7. In a saucepan, combine the glaze ingredients until completed melted. Pour over the buns.
  8. Cover with foil and bake for 15 – 20 minutes on 350 degrees.
  9. Add celery & carrots with ranch or blue cheese on the side for dipping & maybe a side of fries 🙂
  10. Serve & Enjoy!
