The big rival game is here! MSU takes on U of M at noon on Saturday, October 20, 2018. One of my favorite parts of the game is the food! Join me on WZZM around 7:45 am on Saturday for some tailgating food ideas. If you have waited until the last moment to decide on your party food, then I have you covered. I am going to show you some quick and easy recipes that you can do at the last minute. These recipes are delicious, super simple, and no one will ever know that you waited until the last minute to put them together.
It all starts with some chicken! If you want to use a rotisserie chicken, shred or dice the meat. If you want some breaded chicken, grab some crispy chicken strips from your local hot deli (or even frozen strips and throw them in the oven.)

Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese Slaw Sliders
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
12-ounce package coleslaw mix
1/4 cup diced celery
1/2 cup blue cheese dressing
12-count dinner rolls, cut in half horizontally
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
Add shredded chicken to a bowl, then mix in the buffalo wing sauce.
Add coleslaw mix and celery to a bowl, then mix in the blue cheese dressing.
Evenly spread chicken mixture over the bottom buns. Next, add the blue cheese slaw, then sprinkle on blue cheese crumbles. Add the bun tops, then cut into 12 individual sandwiches.
Honey Hot Chicken Sammies
1/2 cup honey hot sauce
8 cooked crispy chicken strips
24 dill pickles slices
1/2 cup Heluva Good Dill Pickle Dip
8 Hot Dog Buns, split top
Add honey hot sauce to a saucepan and heat over medium heat, until warm.
Dip chicken strips into hot sauce.
Add 3 pickle slices to each hot dog bun, followed by a honey hot chicken strip. Dollop each one with a tablespoon of dill pickle dip.
Add some Dill Pickle Slaw to the Honey Hot Chicken Sammies for some extra flavor and crunch. Simply add 1/2 cup Heluva Good Dill Pickle Dip to a 12-ounce package of coleslaw.
Both of these can be made into lettuce wraps instead of using the buns.
