SLICE OF JESS (On Instagram @sliceofjess)

Jess offers up a unique twist on the time honored jalapeño popper with her JALAPEÑO POPPER STUFFED WITH CHEESY CHICKEN. Adding chicken to the popper elevates it to the next level for sure, and is just perfect for snacking on during the big game. Better yet, Jess confirms these tasty treats are great for making ahead so you can spend all the time cheering on your home team instead of cooking in the kitchen!

Buffalo sauce is just about synonymous and almost mandatory for watching sports! You’d be hard pressed to find a tailgating gathering that didn’t have something smothered in that delectable sauce. Jackie with @abusykitchen has the perfect solution for those of you that crave that #1 “wing” flavor but have to/want to watch the calories. She picked up a pack of chicken from her local Fresh Thyme Market (co-branded with Springer Mountain Farms chicken!), and used her recipe for shredded chicken, her favorite Buffalo sauce, cream cheese , celery and onion, and dumped it all a crockpot. To make it Dairy-Free, just use Dairy-Free cream cheese. Serve it with healthy dippers like celery and sweet peppers, and you’ve got a delicious, game time snack that doesn’t kill the calorie count! Check out Jackie’s post on Instagram here for more details on all of the great products she picked up at Fresh Thyme to whip up her tasty Game Time Treat!

Darrell Wiggins (On Instagram @countryboycookingcompany_)

Darrell is a self-professed cheeseburger afficiando and recently came across the Springer Mountain Farms Fresh Chicken Burgers at his local retailer. He picked up a few packs to try, seasoned the patties with his favorite poultry rub, and threw them on a screaming hot griddle. From there, he built the burger from the bottom bun up with mustard-griddled onions, the juicy Springer Mountain Farms chicken burger, pepper-jack cheese, bacon, lettuce and truffle mayo for a winning flavor combo. See what Darrell says about Springer Mountain Farms Fresh Chicken Burgers!

These are just a few easy, delicious options for a big WIN at your next tailgate, or for any time! Check out all of the other fantastic recipes collaborations our Instagram Creators have developed for us as part of our #mySMFchicken Instagram campaign.
