Super Bowl Cheesesteak Appetizers

 

Super bowl Sunday is almost here. It’s time to get those appetizers together for the big game day. I had a fun segment on Fox29 here in Philadelphia and had people messaging me for the recipes of the dishes I’d made.

These recipes are all cheesesteak related from dips to the mini bites. Feel free to change up the cheeses to your liking. Also these go great with a cold beer. Trust me these will not disappoint the crowd. Below you can find my segment as well. All of my ingredients were purchased at Giant Food Stores.

Enjoy!

Buffalo Chicken Pasta

IMG_20130126_202143

As the Superbowl approaches us this weekend, there are lots of parties going on.  If you’re hosting one, I’ll bet your thinking of what to make.  Well I hope this dish helps you out.  I took the famous Buffalo Chicken wing recipe and turned it into a meal, that’s super easy and fast to make.

Ingredients:

6 Boneless Chicken Breast, cut into strips or cubes

Salt & Pepper

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 cup of Ranch Dressing (or Blue Cheese)

1/2 Cup of Green Onions, Chopped

1/2 cup of Franks Red Buffalo Sauce

1 lb of Penne Whole Wheat Pasta (or regular Penne)

1/4 cup of Blue Cheese Crumbles for garnish (optional)

Preparation:

Bring a Large pot of water to a boil, salt and add Penne.  Cook until Al Dente (This means that it should be firm, but not hard, and should take about 5 minutes depending on the brand).

Clean, Cut chicken into strips or cubes, season with salt and pepper.  Add Olive oil to a skillet on Medium heat.  Add chicken and cook until nice and golden.  Should take about 6 to 8 minutes.  Add Ranch dressing and Buffalo Sauce, cook for about 2 minutes or until begins to bubble.  After that add penne and green onions right into the skillet and mix everything together.  Plate on to a nice dish and add blue cheese crumbles.  If you would like you can place this on a baking dish and bake for about 10 minutes.  Once done place on table and let the enjoyment begin.
