Popcorn Chicken 3 Ways #SundaySupper

Popcorn Chicken 3 Ways

Popcorn Chicken 3 Ways so everyone gets a choice! Buttermilk Ranch, Garlic Herb and Smoky Turmeric flavors in bite-sized versions served with dipping sauces.
This week Sunday Supper is welcoming the home team with a big thumbs up! Actually, we’re using all our fingers to serve our finger food recipes! 😉
Our Challenge…
September is creeping up on us, and you know what that means– Football Season! There is no better time of the year than Football Season for delicious party food. Wings, fries, sandwiches, chips and dip… when it comes to finger food, you’ve got a lot of firepower in your kitchen arsenal! Break out the napkins and let’s celebrate Football Season’s exciting parties with equally exciting finger food!

Football season here can be anything from my guy watching the game with a few friends or one good buddy to packing up the snacks and going to a potluck party. When we’re doing it up at home, I like to put out a variety of foods for snacking during the game.

Sneaking in a veggie tray or salad in a cup is not beyond my scope of snacks.
Of course wings are always a hit but can get a bit messy.
That doesn’t mean I need to rule out chicken. Chicken is so versatile and can lead to so many flavor combos. But I know everyone isn’t into buffalo or spicy flavors. So I thought I’d mix it up a bit.
Popcorn Chicken is a fun way to give everyone what they crave. Serve these delicious bites of chicken with some favorite sauces. Mix and match Ranch, Honey Mustard and Smoky Turmeric dipping sauces with your popcorn chicken for a wild flavor pop!

I’m adding fries on the side. Just for fun, serve your “popcorn” chicken in popcorn boxes!

Butternut and Brown Rice Soup

For this Sunday Supper, we’re bringing our best simple rice recipes to the dinner table. 

Simple Rice Recipes for Dinner

Rice is one of the most widely consumed staple foods in the world, second only to bread. There are many different types of rice, from short-grain to long-grain and white to black. Because rice is so versatile in its flavors and filling, it easily rounds out just about any dinner.

Butternut and Brown Rice Soup
I’m a sucker for autumn soups. I fall for them every time! 😉

Seriously, I love, love, love the flavors of fall! Apples worm their way into just about any dish from pizza to dessert. Apple Pizza, Apple Ice Cream, Apple Fritters, Apple Sauerkraut Salad just to name a few.

Pumpkin winds up in  bread, crackers, milkshakes and more.

I have a special place in my heart for winter squash.

Butternut Brown Rice Soup_
Roasting squash brings out its sweetness. Couple that smooth squash puree with nutty, brown rice and you get base for a delicious soup.
I kicked this soup up a notch with fresh thyme, smoked paprika and rich cream. Well, 2 percent milk but that can be our secret!
