Tangy Dr Pepper Chicken and Grill-gating Fund

It’s that time of year again! Time to break out your favorite fan gear, whip up your favorite recipes, and get ready for fun-filled football Saturdays!  Every fall I enjoy sitting in front of the television with my husband on Saturdays and watching our favorite college football team (and any other college team who’s playing).   Whether we have a house full of people or it’s just our family at home, we always have a good time, and we always enjoy our share of delicious homegating and grill-gating food!  Today I’m going to share a recipe for grilled chicken.  It features a Tangy Dr Pepper® marinade, and can be used for your chicken fingers, boneless and bone-in wings, or any other meat of your choice!


For most football Saturdays, we have one or two main entrees and a few finger foods to complement them.  For these days, there are a few products I always like to have on hand.  They include RITZ Original Crackers, Hidden Valley® Ranch Salad Dressing, Dr Pepper, and Glad® Press’n Seal.

Kingsford Charcoal

And when we are taking the party outside, we always have Kingsford® Charcoal to throw on the grill.

You can shop for all your grill-gating and tailgating supplies at your local Walmart.  They have all our favorite brands at unbeatable prices.

Dr Pepper

While shopping, be sure to look for Dr Pepper’s college football packaging.

During football season, you can also find special displays of RITZ, featuring their Family size package.

Recently we enjoyed some grilled chicken fingers and wings.  For this recipe, we created a marinade, featuring Dr Pepper.  This is an easy marinade to make, and it’s also very versatile.  You could use it on pork chops, steak, ribs, and even fish!

Tangy Dr Pepper Marinade

The Dr Pepper is the secret ingredient to a marinade that ensures tender meats.  It also adds a hint of sweetness, that complements the other sauces and spices used in this marinade.

After placing your marinade and meat in a bowl or dish, Glad Press’n Seal helps to create a leak-proof and airtight seal for a perfect marinade process.  Here’s the recipe!
