OK, I admit, football makes no sense to me. Yet that doesn’t stop me from enjoying the whole Super Bowl extravaganza. No matter who’s playing, I’ll be watching. And eating. That’s half the fun, right?

Of course, I have no desire to end up as big as those guys on the field. To not go overboard with extreme snacking, I’m going to make this healthy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich recipe. The chicken is crispy, tender and loaded with flavor; the secret is boneless, skinless chicken thighs that are coated in whole-wheat breadcrumbs and sautéed until golden in just a touch of oil. The sandwich then gets topped with the iconic fixings for Buffalo wings—carrots, celery, blue cheese, hot sauce—blended into a crunchy, zingy slaw. This is a sandwich that satisfies—well beyond the final touchdown.

Pin It! Print It! Save It! Eat It! Mmmm...
