When you want a party side dish for your wings, but plain celery and ranch won’t do, my Bacon Blue Cheese Stuffed Celery is the way to go. Perfect side for Premium Fire Grilled wings.
When it comes to football I think of wings and beer. I mean, I love wings and during the summer and fall, I like to grill my wings. I never understood why someone would add breading to wings and then fry them. Come on, why do you need to add breading? To me it just makes them mushy and overbearing. I like mine grilled and naked. Yeah I said it!
Since it is winter here in Ohio, grilling wings is not the most convenient option. Last week I posted Easy Mediterranean Chicken Pasta using Classic Style Fire Grilled Tenders from Cooked Perfect®. This is an awesome weeknight meal served in under 30 minutes.
When I was shopping at my local Kroger for the tenders, I also grabbed a few bags of the Cooked Perfect® Premium Fire Grilled Wings in preparation for game day. Serving wings with plain celery and blue cheese is so boring; that is why I came up with this simple Bacon Blue Cheese Stuffed Celery.
These Zesty Herbs and Spice Premium Fire Grilled Wings from Cooked Perfect® are found in the freezer section. The fully cooked chicken is marinated, fire grilled and flash frozen. They can be heated in the microwave, but no matter how you choose to cook these Wings they are juicy and flavorful every time. Cooked Perfect® makes a variety of delicious flavors of fire grilled wings, tenders, drumsticks that are perfect for entertaining family and friends.
