Are you ready for some football food?!

BBQ Pulled Chicken

Football season is HERE! Whether you're a die-hard football fan or not so much, we can all agree on the importance of mouthwatering eats and thirst-quenching drinks at every game. At Festival Foods, we live and breathe football food. In fact, we are the Grocery and Tailgating Headquarters of the Green Bay Packers. Festival dietitian, Lauren, and Perishables Specialist, Cindy, highlight some of our new game day items and longtime football favorites on WFRV's Local 5 Live show, along with an easy recipe that you will definitely want to add to your tailgating repertoire.


BBQ Pulled Chicken


1 cup tomato sauce

½ cup ketchup

2 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. brown sugar

2 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. cider vinegar

2 tsp. garlic powder or 1 tsp. minced garlic

1½  lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts  


  1. Place all ingredients except the chicken in the crock pot. Stir until mixed.
  2. Add the chicken and coat well with the sauce.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 7-8 hours.
  4. Layer chicken on a whole grain bun and top with coleslaw, if desired.
