Do you host or attend game day parties? Either way, you are likely making some game day food. If you’re like me, you search the internet, your favorite blogs or Pinterest for snacks and game day food. Some of my blogger friends and I have gathered some of our favorites for this game day round up. Although we are posting them during the football playoffs, they would be perfect for any game day gathering, basketball, NASCAR, hockey or your favorite sport. I hope you enjoy this collection of 21 recipes from some fabulous bloggers.
I’m always looking for new chicken recipes. While searching the internet I had seen a maple cranberry syrup for pancakes and thought to myself, that sounds like a delicious combination. My love of panko breadcrumbs and this winning flavor combination gave birth to panko crusted chicken with maple cranberry sauce. I must say, we were pleasantly surprised with the delicious result. Since my initial run on the recipe, I’ve made it for company on two occasions and it was very well received.
When I originally developed this recipe I knew I wanted to use panko breadcrumbs. They are one of my favorite ingredients to use in cooking. If you’ve never used panko before, you really don’t know what you are missing. The texture it adds to the recipe is delicious.
You may think the sauce is tart because of the cranberries but the maple syrup and wine cut the tartness without making the sauce too sweet. It’s a perfect balance.
I hope you will continue to celebrate #CranberryWeek with me and my blogger friends. Check out today’s recipes below.

My husband is not a big fan of Italian food. Yes, you read that right and it bothers this Italian girl to the core. But after 23 years of marriage I’ve come to accept it. Kind of. I continue to try new dishes and when I hit on a winner, like these Parmesan chicken sandwiches, I’m excited.
I originally planned chicken Parmesan with pasta for dinner but that suggestion was met with dismay. So I suggested this recipe, from Taste of Home, because I had everything on hand and I wanted to make it for Taste of Home Tuesday. This was intriguing to my husband so I whipped them up. I had already done the prep work so the sandwiches came together quickly.
Use your favorite sub or hoagie rolls. My Publix supermarket has delicious hoagie rolls so that’s what I used. I buy them in the bakery. It’s a hearty sandwich so it needs a hearty roll. I served them with chips but a macaroni salad or even garden salad would be delicious. These sandwiches are perfect for game day, weekend lunch or busy weeknight dinner. If you can manage some prep work in advance, the sandwiches take little time to get on the table.
This is the week 14 recipe in the 52 Week New Recipe Challenge.
It’s Taste of Home Tuesday so I invite you to visit my blogger friends, who are also Volunteer Field Editors, who have shared other Taste of Home recipes on their blogs today. Links are below.

I can’t even remember how long I have wanted to make chicken and waffles. Mainly because the one time I had chicken and waffles was at an event and they were terrible. A flat, dry boneless chicken breast over, what appeared to be, a frozen waffle. I knew I could do better, especially using my Grandmother’s fried chicken recipe. Unfortunately I don’t ever remember my Grandmother making this chicken for me but it was my Mom’s go to recipe. My Mom always told me she made her fried chicken just the way her Mom did. So, that’s the way I make it too. It’s easy, nothing really special like hours of brining or soaking in buttermilk but when it’s babied in the frying pan it’s fried chicken perfection. My family loves it. The crust is just crispy enough, but not so crispy that it’s hard to eat. The secret ingredient is chopped fresh Italian parsley added to the seasoned flour. My Mom only used Crisco shortening to fry her chicken in a frying pan. It’s how I make mine too. I use enough shortening that, when melted, is about an inch of liquid.
Let’s talk about the waffle now. We love waffles and a few years ago I asked for a waffle maker for Christmas. Not just any waffle maker but one that makes two waffles at a time. Well, much to my delight, I found a Cuisinart double waffle maker under the tree. That way I’m not eating breakfast (or dinner) alone. I had never made them at home so thankfully the waffle maker came with a booklet. I made the yeast waffles that could also be an overnight waffle, if you just wanted to make them for breakfast. If you’ve never had a yeast waffle, you’re missing out.
A little chicken and waffles history. The Pilgrims are credited with bringing waffles to America from Holland. The earliest American version of the dish appears in the 1600’s in Pennsylvania Dutch country. It was a waffle topped with shredded chicken and gravy. Thomas Jefferson is credited with starting a waffle craze after returning from France with a waffle iron in the 1790’s. Fried chicken and waffles is a soul food dish that has roots in Harlem. It quickly became popular among jazz musicians in New York.
You could certainly serve this dish without the pecan-honey glaze but I will say it’s a delicious accompaniment. Get the recipe here: Pecan-Honey Glaze. If there are nut sensitivities, serve with maple syrup, which would also be good.

My husband is a raspberry fiend. He loves anything and everything raspberry, something he gets from his Aunt Anna. When I came across this recipe for raspberry glazed chicken wings I knew I had to try it. We were not disappointed. The raspberry flavor is prominent, not subtle, making these wings on the sweet side. Again, this recipe is doing double duty at the week 7 recipe in the 52 Week New Recipe Challenge and as part of the Sunday Supper Movements finger foods event.
Due to the marinade time, you need to plan ahead when making this recipe. You need to marinate the wings for at least 4 hours. Cooking time is about an hour. This dish is perfect for a main meal, appetizer or game day snack.
