Spooktacular Countdown - Chicken and Snakes
Tonight I made Chicken and Snakes for dinner. It was sooo goooood! I just made mashed potatoes the way I normally do, then dripped in a few drops of green food coloring. Easy Peasy. I put the mashed potatoes into a bag, clipped the corner, and squeezed snakes onto the plates. I used the pimento from a green olive for the tongue, and cut the olive in half for the eyes. The chicken also turned out really good. I mixed 1/2 c of flour, 1 t Chipotle seasoning, a little salt, and a little pepper into a plastic bag. I dipped each drumstick into milk, tossed with the seasoning, and put on a baking sheet. I baked it at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, flipped the chicken, and baked for another 20 minutes. I'd never cooked the drummies with Chipotle seasoning before, but I was out of paprika and sage, so I experimented. Mmmm.
