Today I wanted to share a spooky recipe as part of the Halloween Time is Nigh series.
This recipe is my son's favorite Halloween dinner. It is called "Monster Fingers" and it is just a big chicken nugget shaped in the form of a finger.
- chicken tenderloins, quantity depends on your family size. For my family we used 1 1/2 packages.
- 3 beaten eggs
- 1 container of Panko breadcrumbs, Italian seasoned
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Extra Virgin Olive oil
- slivered almonds for decorating
First, assemble a work station: flour, eggs, breadcrumbs mixed with cheese. Meanwhile put aluminum foil on a baking sheet and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Dip the chicken in the flour, then in the egg and then in the breadcrumbs. Roll to make shape of a finger. Put them in baking sheet and sprinkle some EVOO on chicken. Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes, turn them over half way through the cooking time to brown on the other side. Glue a slice of almond with ketchup (they will be the nails!) Serve with sauce and a side of veggies. My kids like ranch or ketchup.
