Disclosure: Party Bluprints has partnered with Tyson Foods to provide tips featuring Tyson® chicken wings for the Big Game with Sam’s Club #winwithwings. All opinions are expressly our own.
When it comes to hosting friends and family for the Big Game, the pressure is on to deliver a touchdown. That’s why we’re happy to share our simple plan for the big game!
The first thing to remember when planning your party, is that your guests’ goal is to watch the game and eat at the same time. So make it easy for everyone and serve finger food that requires no utensils – think stadium food not sit down dinner party. Plan your menu to satisfy the game day crowd (fyi: year after year chicken wings top the fan favorite list.) When we recently taste-tested the NEW Tyson® Buffalo Style Boneless Chicken Wyngz along with our sons and husbands, everyone gave them the thumbs up and they are now in the line-up for game day! These bite-sized boneless wings, which are so easy to pick up and pop in your mouth, have the flavor of a traditional buffalo wing baked in so you can enjoy the flavor without the usual mess. The Bonus: Tyson® Buffalo Style Boneless Chicken Wyngz are so easy to make for a football crowd as they come fully cooked in a 52 oz. bag, (simply heat them up in the oven for 15-20 minutes.) Plus, they’re available at a great price at Sam’s Club. A smart play for hosts!
The Game Plan: Invite guests to arrive 30 minutes before game time to allow everyone to catch up before kick-off. Prior to guests arrival, set-up your “Wings and Things” Bar – time the serving of the wings to coincide with party time and replenish as necessary. This self-serve bar allows hungry guests to dig in and get in the spirit. It’s the perfect way to kick off your party!
“Wings and Things” Bar:
- Boneless Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese or Ranch Dressing – Tyson® Buffalo Style Boneless Chicken Wyngz (52 oz.)
- Hummus with Carrot & Celery Sticks and Pita Chips – Sam’s Club pick: Sabra Classic Hummus (25 oz.)

- Fresh Guacamole with Pita and Tortilla Chips – Party Bluprints Easy Recipe>
