‘Twas Halloween. I had a good idea…maybe. Hub was sorting out a pile of old shirts for charity/the bins, so I cut off a sleeve from one, tucked it under a plate and made “Dead Man’s Fingers” with home-made Chicken goujons.
Home-Made Chicken Goujouns Recipe & Method:
These were simply boneless chicken fillets, bashed out under clingfilm with a rolling pin and cut in long strips, then coated with egg/flour/seasoned breadcrumbs and fried. They did look remarkably good, poking out of the cuff and for added drama, a blob of tommy sauce at the end…I sliced carrots into flower shapes for “Dead Man’s Money”. We served a big bowl of home-made chips on the side.
The Dead Man’s hand was almost too scary though, what with all the lights down low, the zombie tea-lights I found in Sainsbury flickering away and the evil pumpkin grinning fiendishly at the end of the table. We should have twigged that our recent teenager had been freaking himself out anyway when he wanted to keep his costume party mask in the kitchen overnight and not in his bedroom…it had been “staring at him” you see. Dad ended up eating half of the plate, told son he would give him a “hand” with it. What a twit wit.
