Or for the adults, Blackened Chicken with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
The Halloween fun continues. This one is actually an original, because I completely screwed up trying to make something completely different. Still I have to say that I can’t complain at all. Tell a bunch of kids that they’re eating Burned Monster Meat with Goblin Goo and you’ll probably wish it were true. I went through a pound of these between one two year old and my wife in less than 20 minutes, so imagine what a room full of kids could do to them! (Portion control, people!)
The unique texture and burned look of these is due to a heavy egg wash, which splits the breading when it expands in hot oil and heavy amounts of paprika in the breading. (The American kind, you know, flavorless, spiceless, mass produced and very cheap?) The paprika will blacken almost immediately, making for a very “straight from the burning building” look. And with nearly neon green sauce, it’s definitely one of the less appetizing looking things I’ve ever made.
The kids should love it!

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
I used way too much season all on the test batch (recipe is corrected), so watch the amounts or it will get very salty. Aside from that, these met with approval from both my wife and Lil’ B. so all is good, it seems.

On that last pic I thought there were feathers on them but alas it was just the writing on the napkin! I guess I need my eyes checked again! LOL!
Great way to “spin” something burned into something fun for Halloween!
what a clever idea! Love it… looks like the perfect thing for Halloween!
