Being an avid football fan, I’m always hosting or joining others at playoff parties to watch the big games. And I will admit that some of the hosts (bless their hearts) seem to think that veggie trays are what guys want to eat…..sigh.
We’ll I’m here to dispel that myth and let you know what guys (and gals) want at their Football Playoff Parties! With the popularity of buffalo chicken over the years, I’m beginning to think that it’s replacing the hot dog as our favorite sports time food. And although you can make your own, when a product as delicious and easy to use like Tyson® Boneless Wyngz*(*contains no wing meat) comes along it makes these get togethers even more festive! Not only do our guests get amazingly delicious food but the hosts get some much needed help in the kitchen.
I was lucky enough to find Tyson® Boneless Wyngz* (*contains no wing meat) in the freezer section at my local Sam’s Club. The manager and I are on a first name basis at my Sam’s Club, I’m always there picking up what I need for my adventures in paradise. From food to beach chairs they’ve got it all!

I was really impressed with the Tyson® Boneless Wyngz* (*contains no wing meat), I knew that they didn’t contain any wing meat but hadn’t been aware that they were 100% white meat. Not only are they delicious, but there an excellent source of protein as they contain 0g trans fat per serving.
Let’s gather our ingredients together. I made my salsa but there are a lot of great options if you want to buy a pre-made version making this sandwich even easier. You can also change it up by using dinner rolls to make sliders, or flour tortillas and let everyone make their own soft taco’s.
I started by slicing my French bread in half and scooping out the extra bread in the middle on each side of the sliced French bread. Then I added a layer of shredded romaine lettuce and layer of corn and black bean salsa. This would also make an ah-mazing buffalo chicken salad, just leave out the bread and serve it with a little bleu cheese dressing.
After 15 minutes in the oven I added a layer of shredded Mexican style cheese and gave it another 10 minutes. I then used a spatula to transfer those delicious cheesy chunks of buffalo chicken onto the bread.
I then placed the top on the sandwich and pressed down. By hallowing out each side of the roll it helped keep all the ingredients in place. All you have to do is place toothpicks every 3 inches or so and cut it into pieces for your guests to enjoy.
