This Recipe is a Touch Down!

BLUE 42! BLUE 42!

Whitney and GiGi Huh?

No, no, no, I am not predicting the name of Jay-Z and Beyonce‘s next baby.

I couldn’t be MORE CREEPED OUT BY THIS PHOTO!

And that isn’t CODE for “watch the latest DUDE FOOD video below“… 

Whitney and GiGi Smiling

Or is it?

Those are actually some American Football terms that are spewed out of the CENTER’S mouth, right before he HIKES the PIGSKIN into the hands of the QUARTERBACK who then looks for an open WIDE RECEIVER or FULLBACK; whomever is closest to the END-ZONE and not being BLOCKED by DEFENSIVE LINEMEN.

Huh?

If John Madden reads this… He would be throughly impressed with my technical football jargon!

I could be a referee!

GiGi Dubois Sexy Referee Costume

Hey, I wouldn’t say no if offered the job! Staring at football player’s booties in tight pants all day… Not a bad gig.

Football Players Falling Over Eachother

Well… Unless of course… These derrieres belong to pro-bowlers that look like…

Fat Football PlayerThis guy.

Sorry dude. Call me (no… TEXT ME) if you need some nutritional advice! 

Well there is certainly no need for me to hit the showers now because that image just ruined my sexual appetite!

GiGi is grossed out

Clearly that dude (and some of his team mates) has been eating way too many “fried to a crisp” chicken fingers!

Deep Fried Chicken Fingers

Sizzling chicks hanging out in a hot tub! Don’t join them!

Perhaps football teams around the country should tune into the latest DUDE FOOD video.

But hold on a second… Football players aren’t the ONLY PEOPLE who might be choking the chicken…

Are YOU guilty of stuffing a few too many pieces of the fried stuff in your face when shouting at the TV during the BIG GAME?

Then you might want to watch the latest DUDE FOOD video too because Whitney and I GIVE THE FINGER to deep-fried chicken fingers!

  1. I’m going to say the pizza has more calories. Am I right? :) These chicken fingers look delish!

  3. Huh? This is about chickens tenderfication? I thought “blue 42″ was the code word for food coloring in a rainbow cake. You pulled the bait & switch. Very disappointed to be here right now.

    ((sidenote: I haz all the ingredietns on hand to make dat chicken))
    Yum Yucky recently posted..45-Degree Walking Lunges WorkoutMy Profile

    • Ba h ha ha ah ha! Well, clearly Blue 42 has a lot of different meaning, which is why Beyonce and Jay-Z better not name their next kid this… It wouldn’t be original AT ALL!

  4. Love the idea of the almond meal and think that would work for a recipe I posted this morning. My guilty snack is cheese dip. So horrible!

    Rachael recently posted..Weight loss surgery pre and post-op – What do you eat for breakfast?My Profile

    • Yay!!!! They are really really good – a little secret: I never actually tried the recipe before we made it. I was incredibly surprised by how good these are!

  6. When I watch the Superbowl– its only for the commercials.
    Jenny recently posted..It’s What’s for Dinner!My Profile

  7. Looks healthy and easy. About how long in the oven? I’d say the ONLY thing I don’t like at super bowl parties is buffalo chicken wings. Who knows that those two will name their kid, but for the sake of what I’m doing right now, let’s say they name their next kid Blog. :) I watch the super bowl in the background and have only a slight interest in either the commercials or the game. But I have to be honest, in the last couple years the games have been exciting. The commercials you can always catch online anyway. Probably the Seahawks since I lived in Seattle for eight years…although I’m team agnostic really. :)
    Tonya@Healthy, Fit, and Frugal recently posted..1/2 Marathon Training Diaries-Week 13My Profile

    • Stick them in the over for about 20-25 minutes, however, if they need more time, definitely keep them in there (timing is a bit different depending on your oven)… Nothing tastier than raw chicken, RIGHT? lol!!! ;)

  8. I definitely watch for the commercials! My favorite part. And the food. And just the party atmosphere of the day! :-)

  10. I watch the superbowl for the commercials… I honestly don’t even know how is playing this year. lol. BUT I do know what I am making for my “dude food”. lol
    Kimberly (Manifest Yourself) recently posted..What’s on the menu for Superbowl Sunday?My Profile

    • BAH AH HA HA HA HA HA AH! Oh you and I are so alike. I feel like there should be a channel on TV just dedicated to the commercials, that’s it!! Of course – we can always just look them up on line, but still!

  11. So I’m sitting in Starbucks right now, SANS headphones which means I DID NOT WATCH THE VIDEO..loud and clear DID NOT WATCH IT! BUT I read every word, and I love almond meal as a the breading for the chicken…good call. I hate football though..and only accept you posting this because it coincides with the dude food trend. Otherwise I’d boycott.

    When I was younger I would easily throw down with like 17 jalepeno poppers..SO FUCKING GROSS. WHY!! I am ashamed..I loved those things. I hate the Seahawks.

    • WHAT IN THE FUC*! I would expect you to announce to EVERYONE IN STARBUCKS that you were about to watch a GIGI EATS CELEBRITIES/DUDE FOOD video – so everyone can SUCK IT and watch with you!!! You let me down Brit, you let me down!

      BAHH H HA HAH AHA!

  12. Yum – those chicken fingers look tasty!!!
    Sadly my favorite unhealthy snack is still potato chips and wine!!!
    But, I try to limit those things and balance them with healthy things like this chicken!!

  14. Fowl Play.. hahaha. I am so easy to please. You girls crack me up for real. I’m moving to LA immediately so I can butt my way into that kitchen and fart around with you. I have no clue what I’m doing for the game, but between these and Whit’s mushroom pizza’s, I would be set for party grub. I’ll be watching for the commercials on Sunday. I couldn’t be less interested in the teams this year!!
    Kristina @ damntenpounds recently posted..What Not to Say to DINK’sMy Profile

    • I’m not sure I want you to fart in my kitchen, however…. You’re more than welcome to MOVE ON UP TO LA so we can CHOKE SOME CHICKEN TOGETHER – bah ah ah!

  15. Okay, so I can lean back and just say I have no clue about football because, duh, I’m German – perfect excuse, right? But then again that means I also can’t have a guilty football snack … Aaaand I also don’t watch the Superbowl [but know several guys taking a day off so they can stay up all night to watch it - time difference!] BUT I do remember one commercial from last year that made the rounds on blogs. The one with the foal. So damn cute.

  16. I have an eye worm after seeing that creepy baby picture!! Don’t ever do that to me again!

    John Madden and his “Tur-duck-en” are the worst things about Super Bowl Sunday!

    You two did a great job of healhifying chicken fingers!

    Marshmallows and cotton candy when I was a kid for the worst.

    Astronaut was my dream as a kid. Still could happen, I suppose. I need to go to the Cape with an “I’ll fly for Chicken fingers,” sign, lol!

    I can’t root for the Broncos ever since they dissed Tebow.

    Dr. J recently posted..Freaking Cancer!My Profile

  17. Yes! I love chicken fingers! I would have your recipe with buffalo sauce-my fav! My guess is that non-almond meal chicken fingers have more calories than pizza because they are fried.

    When I was younger I wanted to be a lawyer. Now that I’m a lawyer I want to be younger and just teach fitness classes! haha!

  19. Bahaha, you make me laugh every time.

    Not a big fan of football here; I prefer hockey or basketball, and not on TV preferably (in person is so much better!)

    My unhealthy snack of all times is chocolate in all its forms.

    As a kid the first thing I wanted to be was a dentist for animals (veterinarian dentist?)

  20. That shot of Amanda Bynes – hahahaha! I love that movie! And I totally eat like that when I’m super hungry. ;) Also, I definitely watch the game for the commercials, if I watch it at all. Really I’m just there to hang out with my besties while the game happens to be on in the background. However, when March Madness rolls around, that’s an entirely different matter!
    Rach recently posted..Family Photo ShootsMy Profile

    • I hear you! The superbowl is really just an excuse to hang out with friends ;)

      AND HECK YES – I totally want to watch pre-Amanda Bynes break down movies right now!!!

  21. That is the creepiest “baby” picture ever. So wrong on so many levels!

    Love GF recipes! Going to try this one with buttermilk instead of eggs due to allergy issue.
    Eileen (Lobster Meets Peach) recently posted..“American Hustle”My Profile

    • That baby photo gives me the shivers. I will most certainly have nightmares – lol!

      Yes, definitely try this with buttermilk. I was trying to figure out an egg replacement for this recipe as I know a lot of people have egg problems – thank you for that suggestion.

  22. Hmm sounds good – I have almost everything for that recipe except the Almond meal, so I’ll have to buy it. Like I said whatever you put out for my birthday week (which is TODAY) I will prepare. Challenge accepted. -Iva <- Birthday Girl :) :) :) Take Care GiGI!

  23. I watch for the Football…I love the sport..Seahawks all the way {since my Saints are not in the bowl}!
    Is Beyonce preggers again? My fave unhealthy snack as a kid??? We really did not get to eat “unhealthy” unless you call the bologna sandwiches on sourdough sliced with mayo and lettuce unhealthy…OH and we at them at the beach, so the sand made them taste even BETTER!! loved those
    Great finger recipe, I am totally going to try that for the kids :)

      And no, Beyonce isn’t pregnant again…. YET! lol
      You also might be the first comment I have read that actually WATCHES the football! ;)

  24. Um, still too traumatized by that baby.
    yummychunklet recently posted..Sara Moulton’s Tomato GratinMy Profile

  25. Gee let’s see, I wonder if I’m the only one tired of seeing their face’s in the media,how about GPS that name seems to be going in their direction. It’s possible I’m the only person who cares less about this game, but I do love Late July brand chips for a snack. Most celebrity’s and their grandiose behavior seem to boil themselves quit well. I always wanted to be a stunt driver, wouldn’t even be work for me. A Seahawk is a helicopter. My old time favorite snack in NY was PIZZA !!!! and it has way more calories than the crispy chicken.

  26. Now THAT is a keeper for sure! Love this and so will MY dude.

  27. TOUCHDOWN GiGi!!! I love me some un-fried chicken. I also think that may be the next name for the Knowles/Carter baby. No, not “un-fried chicken,” TOUCHDOWN!…or Blue 42. That really rolls off the tongue better :-) Maybe Omaha? Now I’m just guessing.

  35. HAH! I watch for commercials. And these days I think I recognize half the actors in them from auditions. Such is the ultra-glam life of an LA actress. As for snack age, spicy salsa and tortilla chips are always divine. As is a good cocktail-I wish I could get into the beer thing but it is not for moi…

    Ruthie recently posted..You Get What You Work For, Not What You Wish For (Workout)My Profile

    • Hopefully rolling is a GOOD THING – ha ha ah! ;)

      And you’re right – guys in tights can definitely be EITHER a GOOD or a BAD thing… NOTHING in between, lmfao!

      A nacho expert huh?! Do explain!

  38. Well, “Blue” is already taken. They’ll be original, and go with something like “Chartreuse” – and call the kid “Char” for short.
    Guilty snack: Macadamia Nut Butter with cocoa nibs. YUM!
    Commercials, definitely! Why would anyone watch for the game? I mean: it’s 4 hours long, and only statistically 11 minutes of actual play time… If you’re watching for anything other than the commercials, you probably need to re-examine your priorities…
    Favorite unhealthy snack as a kid? Ice cream, definitely! I used to eat tons of fruit; so the only thing I would pig out on that was unhealthy (except, you know, bread on sandwiches, pasta, cereal for breakfast, etc.) was ice cream.
    urbanpaleochef recently posted..Mustard SteakMy Profile

    • LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO!!! Chartreuse is the BEST EFFING NAME ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET! They might as well name their child Fire Engine Red.

      Macadamia nut butter and cocoa nibs, that actually sounds BOMB and you just gave me an ideeaaaaaaaaa for the cook-a-long Whitney and I are doing next week, Hmmmm!?!?!?! **Scratches head – LIGHHT BULB**

      And hot damn, ice cream – YUMMM!! What was your favorite flavor?! I wish my taste buds were adventurous back when I was a wee little lass, because I would have tried the AWESOME FLAVORS like birthday cake and peanut butter banana onion raisin bacon. LMFAO – but of course, I was a picky little bitch… Vanilla with rainbow sprinkles please.
      GiGi recently posted..This Recipe is a Touch Down! My Profile

      • Hahaha!! Fire Engine Red! Ok, so Chartreuse if it’s a girl, and Fire Engine Red if it’s a boy. Then they can call him Engi for short. Wait! Scratch that; reverse it! Every little girl wishes her name was Fire Engine Red!

        Woah – that was a bright one! I think I saw it all the way over here!!

        I was super adventurous – probably a little more so than is really healthy… I would eat literally anything! Favorite: Cherry Garcia once it came out. I grew up in the magical world of Ben&Jerry’s land, where all ice cream was amazingly delicious. Moving out of Vermont and tasting some of the crap people call ice cream was a bubble-bursting moment for me. I was like “People are addicted to THIS SHTUFF?!?” That made it easy to kick the habit.

I think if they had a few Gorillas run on the field and throw cheerleaders up into the air as Smash Mouth came out and started singing his old school jam…. That might out do “Queen” B. LMFAO – I should call up some of my SuperBowl contacts and see if this is possible! The NYC Zoo I am sure would love to loan some gorillas!

  49. Hmmm baby name…Red Vine!
    Guilty Football Snack…..loaded nachos
    I watch the Superbowl for the game and the commercials but I usually fall asleep before it’s over…I know, lame.
    I’d throw a lot of celebrities in the deep-fryer, please don’t make me choose just one.
    More calories…Chicken (I totally cheated and looked up the answer!)
    When I was younger my dream job was to be a professional surfer, Apparently, that was a stretch growing up in a land locked area hundreds of miles from the ocean. On a side note, I did learn to surf later in life and I love it but I never became a pro….
    My favorite snack when I was younger was and still is reeses peanut butter cups.

      And hey now cheater – ;)

  51. OMG – I love you too!!! YUM on that recipe! PERFECT! I don’t even watch the Superbowl & it is not about the food for me anyway – I like what I like. :)

    I wanted to be famous when I was little – so weird – no job, just famous & not even paparazzi then! ;)

    How long a list of celebrities can I put to throw in the fryer! ;) Way too many starting with Bieber cause he has been in the news the most!

  56. Thankfully, I hate football, so I don’t have to eat JUNK on Sunday!!!! But I do like junk… and my favorite as a kid was probably really buttery popcorn. :) My parents would buy huge bags of it already popped from a local theater. It is so unhealthy, looking back on it!!! But you know, back when I was a kid, we actually played outside and stuff like that so it all evened out…
    Meg @ Meg Go Run recently posted..The ABCs of… ME!My Profile

      You bought the almond meal because subconsciously YOU KNEW you were going to need it VERY SOON because you knew I was going to post a recipe that included it! DING DING! You can see into the future! ;)

  58. My husband makes something like this..calls them “Chicken McNuggets” so that the kids will eat them. Wouldn’t you believe it doesn’t work?
    If it helps, they won’t really eat McDonald’s either. Whew.
    I am being honest – I can’t watch more than a minute of football without my eyes glazing over. I am, however, VERY excited for the commercials.

  60. I live in Seattle so, obviously, go Seahawks! I actually *like* watching football, though I don’t do it often because I’m doing other things. Also I do love the superbowl commercials!

  67. Where on earth do you get these photos. Too funny! ;) I just restocked my supply of almond meal! Yay! Happy Super Bowl!

  68. Seriously almost spit out my water when I saw that picture of the baby. So creepy. Adult face on a baby = not cute. I love using almond meal on chicken! I am having a current love affair with almond meal in general though so I might be biased. Oooops.

    • Adult Face on baby’s body reminds me of those dream sequences in sitcoms back in the day! LOL! It reminds me of Full House or Friends – Ah two of the best shows out there! :)

      Oh my, are you and Almond Meal going to get married ;)

    So funny that I had a killer craving and made my own version of chicken fingers when you first posted this. Mine was with turkey breast cutlets, garlic, cumin, and SMOKED paprika (seriously, get on that!). baked after coating with panko and the spices. NOMMZZZZZZZ

    Football is stupid, I only cared the year the Giants won recently, and that was b/c I was spending way too much time in bars and my homies were into it

    • Erin from Long Island says:

      oh also, chicken wings are gross! they are fried for no reason (still have flabby skin, no crisp = why bother) and they are so greasy and messy and are often more bone then food. Not that I mind a good bone every now and then. Oops, I’ve said too much…

    • I HAVE A BAG THAT COULD FILL A POOL full of SMOKED PAPRIKA!!! Holy MOUTH-PLEASING MAGIC! I am obsessed with it. It goes amazingly well in eggs and on chicken – ha, they are relatives after all ;)

      And OMG – I actually WATCHED the Super Bowl the year the Giants actually won! I remember they were LOSING and within the last like 30 seconds THEY WON!!!

      • Erin from Long Island says:

        yeah, it was a good game from what I remember =)

        i seriously put smoked paprika on nearly everything!

  70. finally helga, you’re silly blog is working.

    Ok you’re blog is working. You and Whit…where do I even begin. That chicken finger dish looks AMAZEBALLS.

    PS random, but you eat kinda paleo right? Guess who had a salmon hangover last night? ME. Grilled salmon + Salmon sashimi at the Japanese restaurant. No bueno.

    • A salmon hangover?!?!?!? How is that even possible!? Speaking of fish, you would be SO JEALOUS of what I just ate… AW MAN, I WANT MORE. But I can’t – my mom is visiting and she’d think I were a FATTY if I ripped into her leftovers that she got a doggy bag for – but let me tell you, I might sleep walk and EAT IT! lol

  71. Great recipe Gigi, loving that you used almond meal to coat. Gluten-free and so much better tasting!

    • I cannot even remember what fried chicken tastes like! I LOVE how this almond meal gives a little bit of a sweet flavor! Phenomenal :) Hope your favorite team wins tomorrow!

  72. These look great!!! ANd I’m all about having your fave treats…only a little bit healthier!! :)

  73. Hooray for the “dude foods”!
    The eye black is a good look for you, Gigi.. You should just be a trendsetter and wear that around town.

    I’ve been using almond meal in place of flour in all kinds of recipes and it almost always ends up great.
    These chicken fingers look yum. I bet the kids wouldn’t even know that they were eating healthy!

    • I was thinking about rocking the black eyes more often too – especially on the days when I actually wake up with huge bags under my eyes, why not accentuate them, no? LOL! Sometimes I actually go out with stuff drawn on my life, it’s hysterical to see people’s reactions! Maybe next time, I will draw a chicken on my face and eat these almond crusted chicken fingers – too much?

  74. Gigi does it again! You are amazingly clever. This time you had me at the scary Jay-Z baby clone. If they had a second child I certainly hope she/he does not look anything like that! What a hoot! My guilty food pleasure is vegan pizza! I hope you enjoyed the Super Bowl festivities! Thank you so much for sharing this fun post with us on the Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Blog Hop!! All the best, Deb

  76. You guys are too funny! I definitely don’t think people realize how unhealthy regular chicken fingers are (even though they’re delicious haha). The Jay-Z baby picture…omg I die.

    • Isn’t that kind of sad :( People think it’s chicken and overall, chicken is very healthy… They don’t realize that that batter is horrendous for their health!!!!! :(

      And I cannot even go on this post anymore because I don’t want Jay-Z baby nightmares!

  77. though I love the chicken recipe, but that pictures are hilarious… recipe is great…

  78. This recipe sounds absolutely awesome, but I am scared of that Jay Z-Beyonce baby photo. No baby should be cursed to look like that :P
    Great post!

    Cheers

  79. OK, that Jay-Z/Beyonce baby picture freaked me out.
