Martha Stewart‘s All American Buffalo Chicken Tenders:

no title

1 cup crumbled blue cheese (about 4 ounces)
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders
1/2 cup vegetable oil, such as safflower
1/3 cup hot sauce
2 tablespoons melted butter

-Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet, and transfer to oven. In a medium bowl, stir together blue cheese and 1/2 cup buttermilk. Season dip with salt and pepper, and set aside.
– Place flour and remaining 1/2 cup buttermilk in separate medium bowls; season with salt and pepper. Set out another rimmed baking sheet alongside. Dip chicken in buttermilk (allowing excess to drip off), then in flour (shaking off excess); place on sheet.
– In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Working in batches, fry chicken until golden brown and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to rack in oven to keep warm.
– In a large bowl, stir together hot sauce and melted butter. Add chicken, and toss to coat. Serve tenders with blue-cheese dip.

A super bowl party isn’t complete without chicken wings!

If you want to add a twist to this already classic recipe, Jay Leno added his Uncle Louie‘s Chicken Wings Marinara recipe to Frank Sinatra‘s cookbook with his wife:

no title

1 dozen chicken wings or 2 dozen drumettes
2 T. olive oil
1 T. garlic powder or granulated garlic
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 c. marinara sauce
2 T. Durkee Hot Sauce, or to taste
4 garlic cloves, chopped
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

– Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
– If using whole chicken wings, disjoint the wings and remove tips; you should have 24 drumettes.
– In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Arrange on a rack in a baking pan. Roast the chicken in the preheated oven until done, about 30 minutes.
– Meanwhile, place the marinara sauce, hot sauce, and raw garlic in a blender and blend to pur├â┬⌐e the garlic. When the wings are done, remove from the oven and toss wings with half the sauce. Leave oven on. Return the wings to the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
– Sprinkle the wings with parsley. Serve with the remaining sauce on the side to dip the wings into.

If you want to try something different, try these Mini Antipasto Calzones from Giada De Laurentiis:

no title

Flour for dusting
1 (16-ounce) ball pizza dough
1/2 cup (4 ounces) shredded provolone cheese
1/2 cup (4 ounces) shredded Fontina cheese (see Cook’s Note)
1-ounce salami diced into 1/4-inch pieces
1/2 of a jarred roasted red bell pepper, drained and diced into 1/4-inch pieces (about 1/4 cup)
1 tablespoons kalamata olives, finely chopped (about 5 olives)
1 egg
1 teaspoon water
Cornmeal for dusting
Marinara sauce, for dipping

Cook’s note: Place a wedge of Fontina cheese in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes to make shredding easier.

– Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
– On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough ball into a 14-inch diameter circle, about 1/4-inch thick. Using a 4-inch round cutter, cut each dough round into 12 circles. Transfer the circles onto two heavy baking sheets dusted with cornmeal.
– In a medium bowl, combine the cheeses, salami, peppers, and olives. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and water together. Place 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture onto 1 side of each dough circle, leaving a 1/4-inch border on the edge. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the edges of the dough with the beaten egg. Fold the unfilled side of the dough over the filling and using the tines of a fork, press the edges of the dough together to seal. Repeat with the remaining dough circles.
– Brush the calzones with the remaining egg mixture and bake for 14 minutes, rotating the position of the trays halfway through baking, until the calzones are golden brown. Serve the calzones on a platter with warm marinara sauce for dipping.

May your Super Bowl day be filled with delicious food and fun!!
