The BIG GAME is just 2 days away. Are you ready? Got your menus planned?
I’ve been trying to be way better in the eating department lately. Let’s just say that I was a little over zealous in the enjoyment of ALL the holiday foods. Thankfully I’ve been able to drop 18 pounds the last few weeks, and although I want to definitely slim down more, it’s a good start.
But now, of course, comes the hiccup that occurs every year. Game day food. All that glorious, greasy, comforting trays and platters of cheesy goodness. Will I partake in those epic game day eats? You bet I will. It’s going to be my cheat day. But I also don’t want to completely derail the momentum I’ve built up with my better eating habits.
That’s where trying to focus on some really big, bold-flavored game day appetizers comes in clutch. With these Thai Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps, with Naked Truth Flame Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets, I (and everyone else that’s clinging on to those New Year’s resolutions) can still eat great grub without the tremendous amount of guilt that follows the typical football tailgating grub.
These Thai Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps are jam packed with flavor. The peanut sauce, although it has a good amount of ingredients (most of which you probably already have in the pantry), comes together in minutes because you just need to dump into a blender and give it a whirl until smooth.
That super colorful Asian Slaw? It’s not just looks. It provides a wonderful fresh crunch and acidic punch to cut through the richness of the peanut sauce.
And of course, Naked Truth Flame Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets never disappoint. They are ridiculously convenient (just heat, slice, and serve!). And more importantly, they are tremendously juicy and have a great flavor. They are pretty perfect all on their own, but top it with a drizzle of peanut sauce and spoonful of Asian slaw… and it becomes nothing short of magical!
