Witch's Chicken Fingers with Monster Brain Dip

Happy Halloween everyone!

This year I have an extra special treat for all your little ghosts and goblins (and the big ones too)!

 Chicken tenders are dipped in mayonnaise, coated in a crunchy Panko bread crumbs, and baked to moist crispy goodness with almond finger nails and gooey witch's blood!

Serve with a side order of monster brain dip and you've got the fixings for a spooktacularly delicious Halloween!

This is an incredibly delicious main dish or appetizer, and if you try it, let me know! As well, be sure to subscribe to follow this blog, and follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Youtube.

  2. Marinate the chicken tenders in the mayonnaise 4-6 hours.
  3. Mix the breadcrumbs and creole seasoning together in a shallow dish and then place the chicken into the dish turning to coat well on all sides. 
  4. Brush the tip of each finger with beaten egg and add an almond finger nail.
  5. Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet, at 400 for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.
  6. Let cool slightly and then put a little of the red gel around the nail beds, smearing it slightly to make it extra creepy.

Monster Brain Dip 
  • 1/2 cup red pepper jelly

Mix just enough to make the jelly and mayo look like goopy brains :-) (as per the video) Gross looking but absolutely delicious!
