Best Super Bowl Food Ideas 2022

We all may disagree on which team we want to win in this year’s Super Bowl LVI (I wanted the Bills to win, so I don’t have a dog in this fight!). But one thing we can ALL agree on, is that the REAL star of any Super Bowl is what’s on the table – not to mention the amazing commercials that I look forward to every year.  I get so excited about what I am going to make and I usually overdo it as usual, making a sickening amount of food that we can eat for the days that follow. In all my excitement and my stockpiling of recipe ideas, I decided that I would make this post compiling the Best Super Bowl Food Ideas 2022!!

From hot cheesy dips to rib-eye sliders, Nashville hot chicken, and even some easy handheld desserts – I guarantee you will find something you love on this list!

CPK BBQ Chicken Salad Copycat Recipe

 

CPK BBQ Chicken Salad Copycat Recipe

If it wasn’t $18, I would get it all the time.

The BBQ Chicken Salad from CPK is one of my favorite decadent salads to order but it’s too dang expensive to get it at the restaurant so we are making a copycat recipe at home! This salad is rich, creamy, and loaded with hearty ingredients like barbecue chicken breasts, black beans, avocados, crisp sweet corn, crunchy tortilla chips and lots of other fresh ingredients. The drizzled barbecue sauce and ranch dressing over the top really takes it to the next level. Who would’ve thought barbecue sauce would be good on salad?? But it works.

Double Dark Homemade Milano Cookies Recipe

 

Double Dark Homemade Milano Cookies Recipe

Let the Valentine’s baking season begin! These Double Dark Homemade Milano Cookies are lightly sweet, perfectly crunchy and filled with decadent dark chocolate in the center. After Christmas I always need a break from baking because I literally bake myself sick. We have so many sweets in our house from Thanksgiving to New Years and once January comes around we are over it! But…. once the month of January comes and goes and I’ve been putting my kitchen energy into making healthy meals, I get the baking bug again when I see the pink and red aisle at Target. This season I will be sharing a handful of Valentine’s recipes that are equally cute as they are delicious! Continue Reading…

Popeye’s Voodoo Chicken Tenders Copycat Recipe

 

Popeye's VooDoo Chicken Tenders Copycat Recipe

I think most of us would agree that limited time offer menu items are usually the best menu items. They are the ones I long for months and years after they are gone. Like the Five Cheese Fonduta and Chicken Alfredo Fritta from Olive Garden. I always wonder why restaurants don’t ever make them staple items when they are such a success?!

These Voodoo chicken tenders from Popeye’s are one of those recipes I can’t stop thinking about. Perfect crisp tenders, drizzled in a garlicky sweet chili sauce and topped with green onions – which add the perfect texture and finish! Continue Reading…

Better Than Olive Garden Chicken Scampi

 

Better Than Olive Garden Chicken Scampi

While most people look for the Shrimp Scampi on the menu, I opt for the Chicken Scampi. Just a chicken girl. Always have been, always will be! What I love about making this dish is that it’s only a handful of ingredients, simple and amateur-level easy to make but the white wine, garlic and butter flavors pack such a huge punch and elevate this dish to fanciness highway. This is better than Olive Garden Chicken Scampi!

Wendy’s Twisted Frosty Copycat Recipe

 

Wendy's Twisted Frosty Copycat Recipe

Today I am remaking a beloved Wendy’s item from the early 2000’s – the Twisted Frosty! Who remembers these? They offered them in four different flavors; Oreo, M&M, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Coffee Toffee. This was the Wendy’s version of the McFlurry but SO MUCH BETTER! I don’t go to Wendy’s often, but when I do, I rarely ever leave without at least a snack size Frosty. It’s basically a condiment for my fries 🙂

We start by making my copycat version of the Wendy’s Frosty as the base recipe. You can use this recipe as a standalone recipe, or turn it into a Twisted Frosty by using the mix-ins of your choice.

Crispy Honey Chicken PF Changs Copycat

 

Crispy Honey Chicken PF Changs Copycat

One of my all-time favorite takeout dishes is the Crispy Honey Chicken from PF Changs. It’s also one of the most popular dishes on their menu. But here is the downside to the popularity – if you go at a time that’s busy (so, basically anytime :))  it seems they make it ahead and keep it warm. This could be an unfair conclusion, but what’s fact is that 9/10 times I order it, all crispiness has evaporated into oblivion and all that’s left it a gummy, goopy chicken dish. No bueño!  So, I have created a, dare I say, even BETTER version with my Crispy Honey Chicken PF Changs Copycat recipe. But for those of you who still enjoy getting this menu item from PF Changs, I also have a great hack for you to ensure the dish is crispy! Continue Reading…
