Incredibly easy Buffalo wings

When it comes to watching the Super Bowl, I’m all about appetizers. So when I planned my Super Bowl party menu this year, the only hard part was deciding which of my favorites to make. Boneless Buffalo Wings with Spicy Blue Cheese Dip made the cut without question.

Not only are they incredibly easy to make, they’re boneless so I don’t have to worry about our dog sneaking discarded bones off the coffee table during the game. EatingWell’s version is made with healthy white-meat chicken tenders dredged in seasoned whole-wheat flour and cornmeal, then pan-fried in just a small amount of oil and drizzled with a tangy hot pepper sauce.

More awesome appetizer recipes for watching the big game:

Southwestern Layered Bean Dip: Plenty of black beans, salsa and chopped fresh vegetables mean a healthy amount of dietary fiber in this Tex-Mex layered dip. We use reduced-fat sour cream along with full-fat (and full-flavored) cheese to make the dip lighter without compromising great taste. Be sure to have lots of baked tortilla chips on hand when you serve it.

Hot Artichoke-Parmesan Spread: The healthy update of this classic dip delivers all of the rich flavor with far less of the usual fat. Serve with pita crisps or toasted slices of French bread.

Oven-Fried Zucchini Sticks: Our oven-baked zucchini sticks taste every bit as good as their deep-fried brethren with only a fraction of the fat and calories. Serve with a side of your favorite marinara sauce for dipping.
