The NFL playoff season is set and one of the teams vying to win the Super Bowl LIII is none other than the Chicago Bears.

Today’s recipe comes from “Jimbo” Covert - a former Chicago Bears offensive tackle who was a two-time pro bowl and first team all-pro selection during his eight year career with the Bears.

He was the 6th pick in the 1983 draft and was a first team All American with the Pittsburgh Panthers in 1982.
