|Sweet Baby Ray’s Crockpot Chicken|
With football season here, game day foods come to mind. Yes, chili, shredded pork, and cheese dip are popular. But chicken–yes chicken–makes a great game day dish. Here are some chicken recipes that have plenty of flavor and pizzaz for any game-day party. These are all easy recipes that take a minimum of work. And, mostly they are pretty healthy. Pick some to try for your next get-together!
1. Sweet Baby Ray’s Crockpot Chicken
Who doesn’t like a crockpot recipe for entertaining? This one uses the very popular Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbeque Sauce (no affiliation), but you can use your favorite bbq sauce. Here is the recipe at FortkInIt. The only change I suggest is to cook it on low for 4 1/2 hours rather than the 4-6 hours as stated in the recipe. That’s because the recipe it is based on recommends that.
2. Maple Mustard Man-Pleasing Chicken

If you prefer a mustard based sauce similar to honey mustard, this recipe does not disappoint. You bake skinless chicken thighs in a maple mustard sauce. Plan on two thighs per person. You could probably bake these the day before & reheat in the microwave for easy serving on game day. Here’s the recipe at WittyInTheCity.
I like that you don’t get the fat from the skin in any of these recipes. With good sauces you won’t miss the skin!

3. Jamie Oliver’s Crunchy Garlic Chicken Strips
Use skinless chicken breasts for this versatile recipe. You bake the breasts after pounding them flat and coating them with crumbs. After just 15 minutes in the oven, you have beautiful chicken ready to be cut into strips. Jamie suggests sprinkling them with just a bit of salt. Stack the strips on a plate and serve with a dipping sauce if you like. Yum. He says you can use the same technique for breading fish, so it’s a good technique to learn. Kids would love these too. Much healthier than fried chicken fingers. Here is the easy recipe at JamieOliver.com.
4. The Best Rotisserie Chicken Fix-Up Ever
This is the easiest recipe yet! You buy a rotisserie chicken and “doctor it up” with salad dressing, then put in the oven for about 20 minutes to let the flavors develop. So easy and so good. I got this recipe from my brother and we love it! Click here for this recipe so easy your kids can make it! So if you are short on time, make this your go-to recipe!
