3 Recipes for a healthy, socially distant Super Bowl party

Buffalo Wings

Whether you’re rooting for Tampa Bay or Kansas City, all Super Bowl fans can agree on one winner — the food! While this year’s Super Bowl celebrations may be smaller than usual, you can still enjoy your favorite foods. These three recipes serve four, but in the future could be doubled or tripled for larger groups.

Easy buffalo wings

Skip the takeout wings and make a leaner version at home. This recipe details how to boil, then broil chicken wings instead of frying. This method keeps the wings moist on the inside, and crispy on the outside without the extra fat. Flavor the wings with your favorite buffalo or other wing sauce. Don’t forget to serve with plenty of carrot and celery sticks to give your taste buds a break, and sneak in some veggies.
