Super Snack Hacks And Game Day Party Ideas For Busy Moms – When it comes to party planning, it can be a source of great stress for many. The list of chores involved begins to grow immediately. Getting the house “company” ready, taking care of the kids, and planning the menu. Not to mention the clean-up plan. In the face of it all, you may be sorely tempted to order in. The folks at Farm Rich know how difficult it can be and they offer a wide range of tasty solutions, and you can add a little homemade love using fresh ingredients to make it your own.
Farm Rich reached out and asked if I would try their new Boneless Buffalo Chicken Bites and Bone-In Breaded Barbecue Chicken Wings. My kids already love the mozzarella sticks it just seemed like a natural progression. The chicken wings provide a tasty shortcut, and the sauces are included. A must with wings, is homemade ranch dip to serve alongside them, so, I had to include a recipe. If you prefer a classic bleu cheese dip for your wings, mix-in 2 oz of your favorite bleu cheese and a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce.
My family really liked the wings, each with their own unique flavor and breading. The boneless chicken bites, have just the right amount of black pepper in the breading giving them just a hint of spice. The breaded bone-in wings turned out crispy and crunchy and moist on the inside. I served the sauces on the side, however, you can toss them in the sauce, too. It is possible to mix frozen and homemade ingredients to create your own game day feast.
