Super Bowl, or as it is known in my house: “party food feast”!  My husband and son plan out their menu weeks in advance and I honestly wonder if they are more excited about the game or the spread before them. 

Here are a few of my favorite dishes to serve on Super Bowl along with this deliciously spicy chicken dip:

Why Chicken is So Good For You!

We all know that chicken is a tasty and fantastic source of protein, but do you know why it is so good for you?  Chicken, along with many other sources of animal protein, such as beef, eggs and fish, are a complete source of protein.  This means that all nine essential amino acids are present and available to you when you eat these foods.  When it comes to nutrients, anything labeled as “essential”  means that your body cannot make or synthesize this nutrient, so it must be provided to your body by the foods you eat.

As mentioned above, there are nine essential amino acids that we must eat everyday to provide our bodies energy as well as the building blocks necessary in everyday functions such as growth and repair, immune support, and in the synthesis of our hormones and neurotransmitters.

The nine essential amino acids and their roles are [1]:

  • Histidine: necessary for the production of histamine and also plays a role in nervous system health
  • Valine: necessary in energy production as well as muscle growth and repair
  • Phenylalanine: building block for neurotransmitters like dopamine and epinephrine (adrenaline), and in the production of other amino acids.
  • Leucine: necessary in stimulating wound healing, muscle repair, and blood sugar regulation.
  • Isoleucine:  necessary in immune function and energy regulation.
  • Tryptophan: necessary building block for serotonin.
  • Methionine: necessary in detoxification, metabolism, and in your body’s ability to absorb selenium (supports thyroid health) and zinc (necessary in production of HCl in your stomach).
  • Threonine: necessary in skin and connective tissue health.
  • Lysine: necessary in hormone production and your body’s ability to absorb calcium (bone, heart, muscle and nerve health.)

So grab some chicken and let’s get cooking!

FAQs

Q: Can I use a different hot sauce other than Frank’s?

A: Yes, you can use whatever you want, however, keep in mind that most buffalo sauce is based in a cayenne pepper sauce.

Q: Can I make this ahead of time?

A: Yes! I love prepping ahead of time so I can spend more time enjoying my family and friends (and maybe sneak in a peek or two of the big game!) I would go ahead and prep it and then cover and store it in the refrigerator. When you’re ready, bake and serve!

Q: How do I temper this down a little?

A: If you are looking to make this a little less spicy, omit the chipotle and cayenne pepper and maybe add a small amount of pure maple syrup or raw honey as these will temper down spice.
