Spooky Monster Fingers

Only 20 days till Halloween!! We have been having some cooler weather and enjoying hot chocolate and pumpkin bread…how about you? In Uruguay it is starting to get hotter and the days longer.
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.

The ingredients are:

  • 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
  • Flour
  • 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.
