Super Bowl Game Bodybuilding Friendly Recipe – Buffalo Chicken Wings
By Johnathan Zamora
With the Super Bowl Game fast approaching, I thought it appropriate to provide some great tasting recipes to serve as bodybuilding friendly alternative meals to traditional fare. For the next few days, check back on this post – as I will provide a new recipe each day leading up to the Big Game Next Sunday.
Today’s recipe is Boneless Buffalo Chicken Tenders with Blue cheese dip although you won’t find any frying here.
This super easy and quick dish is great to increase your protein intake while still enjoying the taste of hard fried wings – without all the extra fat! I substituted greek yogurt in place of salad dressing to further minimize calories while packing a high protein punch. These spicy treats are sure to be a big hit!
