Popeyes Chicken Delivers the Best Parties

Super Bowl 51 is officially going down in the record books and for me, it is the most memorable Super Bowl to date but not for the reasons you may be thinking. Popeyes Chicken made this Super Bowl one to remember!

I was fortunate enough to have Popeyes Chicken cater my party in exchange for my honest opinion in this feature, of course all opinions are my own.

My guests were excited to see their favorite Popeyes items being served and it was an added bonus when we got to try out a new item that has now hit the Popeyes Chicken menu, Waffle Tenders.

These delicious tenders are made with 100% all white meat chicken breast strips marinated in Louisiana seasonings, dipped in a light waffle batter.

Paired with Popeyes Chicken’s Sweet Honey Maple Sauce, this flavor combination will make your taste buds happier than Tom Brady was with his 5th Super Bowl win.

The Waffle Tenders by themselves have a distinct flavor of one of my favorite combos. chicken and waffles and when you add in the Sweet Honey Maple Sauce, it’s like combining breakfast, dinner, and dessert all at one amazing time.

I have always enjoyed Popeye’s Chicken and of course the spicy and mild were a huge hit at my party as well as some of the other classic sides that Popeyes Chicken is known for serving.

My favorite way to enjoy Popeyes Chicken is with some hot sauce alongside of a biscuit slathered in honey, a pile of mashed potatoes covered in gravy, as well as a big helping of red beans and rice.

Now that I tried a few other dishes that Popeyes Chicken has to offer I think I may need to change up my order from here on out.

Some of my guests were more familiar with Jambalaya than I was and they insisted that I give it a try. It didn’t take much convincing as it smelled amazing and kind of looked like the Red Beans & Rice to me so I was excited to see what it was all about.

It reminded me of a dish my grandmother used to make and it even had a little kick, which I loved! Although it reminded me of the Red Beans & Rice in appearance it had a flavor all it’s own. It was a delicious surprise and is now going to be a staple in my standard Popeyes Chicken order.

If you haven’t tried the Jambalaya yet, I urge you to do so!

With so many different sides and flavors to offer, Popeyes Chicken is the place to go when you are wanting to cater your party. Luckily we have a couple of Popeyes in the Cedar Rapids area, so all of our parties are guaranteed to have great food from now on!

The Popeyes Chicken in Cedar Rapids delivered our food on time and it was the perfect temperature. It arrived in containers that not only made the food highly transportable but it kept it hot and everything tasted fresh!

When I was serving the Red Beans & Rice to my brother, he noticed the Popeyes Chicken serving spoon and was excited about the possibility of owning it.

I was thrilled that they thought of everything and I didn’t even have to dirty my own serving spoons to serve the food to my guests. I let my brother have one of the spoons and secretly kept some for myself as well, they are really cool!

Besides the delicious chicken, Popeyes is also known for their biscuits. I have never had another biscuit that taste quite like these and have attempted to recreate the recipe at home but have come to the conclusion that I should leave it to the experts at Popeyes Chicken.

So perfectly buttery and fluffy, these biscuits feel like they could solve all of the problems in world with a little honey or jam spread on top, even the Falcons can smile today if they ate a few of these biscuits.

Just when you thought you couldn’t eat another bite, it’s time for dessert. That’s right, Popeyes even has mouth watering desserts for your party, which means as the host, my job was super easy!

Everyone enjoyed the Red Velvet Cake with decadent frosting served in individual containers which made clean up a breeze. If your guests are more of the pie lover type, Popeyes Chicken also brought us some Georgia Pecan Pie!

This pie was a hit! Everyone loved it and couldn’t get enough of it. I am so happy that my Super Bowl Party went better than I could have ever expected. We got to watch a record breaking game, eat delicious food, and spend time with our friends enjoying it all.

I don't care for their chicken but all of there sides are to die for! I'd gain so much weight but could totally live off of them!
