These chicken mummies are perfect for a fun but healthy Halloween dinner to fuel your little ghouls and goblins for a long night of trick-or-treating. They are also a hit at adult Halloween parties. This recipe can be tailored quite easily: chicken tenders can be marinated in your choice of marinade before cooking; different flavored tortillas can also change the look and taste. Serve with your choice of condiments; salsa, guacamole, and sour cream go well, as do barbecue sauce or even ketchup.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet or spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray over medium-high heat; cook chicken until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate to cool enough to handle.
  4. Wrap each chicken piece with a tortilla strip, starting at 1 end and overlapping tortillas when starting a new strip and leaving a gap at the top for the 'face'. Place 'mummies' on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until until tortillas are crisp and chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Cool mummies for about 5 minutes; place 2 olive slices on each 'mummy' for the 'eyes.'

I give it a 4 for flavor but a 5 for fun. I made these with my niece after watching a documentary in King Tut. It was a fun together time and a tasty meal too. She made me promise to make them again, so this one is a keeper. Thanks for the recipe and the memories. PS...I forgot to mention that we used tooth picks to secure the strips while wrapping and baking.

I made it with the chicken tenders recipe instead of cooking the normal chicken, so it was crispy and nice. It was hard to wrap the tortillas, when it comes to connecting one to other. But lookes really cute and fun to eat. Good recipe!
