Super Bowl XLIX {Recap}

Over the past 7 years since Matt and I have been married, we have had the joy of hosting a Super Bowl party in our home! It’s always such a fun time to gather with community over this crazy thing called “football.” Well, this year we have decided to go to someone else’s house  (kind of sad to break the tradition, and well one year we were on a cruise), but it will be a nice break.

Here are a few ideas from our past parties for those of you hosting a Super Bowl Party!

I leave you with one of my favorite slow cooker recipes for the Super Bowl!

Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Chicken


-adapted from Sandra Lee 


4 lbs. Chicken Breasts and Thighs (rinsed and patted dry)

Salt and Pepper

2 medium Onions (cut into wedges)

1 c. Dark Beer (substitute:  1 c. ale)

1 1/2 c. Barbecue Sauce


Season chicken with salt and pepper.

Working in batches, brown chicken on both sides.

Place browned chicken in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker.

Add onions to slow cooker.

In a bowl, combine dark beer and barbecue sauce. Pour mixture over chicken and onions in slow cooker.

Cover and cook on high-heat setting for 3-4 hours or low-heat setting for 7-8 hours.

***Optional-Get rid of onions for those who think onions are the DEVIL (not me).

Strain chicken, but save broth and onions.

Let chicken cool for a bit and then shred chicken with two forks.

Return chicken and broth to crock pot and add in 1 c. of BBQ sauce.

Keep on warm setting and enjoy.

Question: What are you doing for the Super Bowl?

  1. We are typically the friends that throw the parties but for some reason have never hosted Super Bowl! I’m not a huge football fan so maybe that’s why… Although I am a fan of the food! This year we’ll be in Hawaii so I’ll miss out on all the yummy eats. Maybe I’ll save myself from gaining a few pounds though 😉

  2. Love this round-up! We are going to a party with our Sunday school class. The couple hosting it is having a chili cook off! I’m looking forward to testing out a new chili recipe. 🙂
