My Halloween menu always includes lots of edible creepy crawlies and gore filled treats. The grosser the better! Go all out this Halloween with my favorite creepy recipe, “Finger Sandwiches”.
I invented this monstrosity purely by accident. If you’re from upstate New York like me chances are you know what a “Speedie Sandwich” is. After moving to Colorado I realized that the rest of the world was missing out on this delectable dish. I made it my mission to recreate the recipe. Once perfected though my kids were not at all fond of the strong flavors that make them so delicious to us grown-ups. So I altered the recipe to make it more sweet and savory, rather than just savory, by adding pomegranate dressing. At first sight my kids (and I have to admit me as well) were not sure about this chicken. As you can see it looks really gross. Like body parts floating in a dish. However once I coaxed them into taking a bite they loved it. I won't be making this for a dinner party any time soon but do plan to serve this every year for Halloween dinner.
1 package of chicken tenderloins
1 cup pomegranate vinaigrette dressing
¼ cup lemon juice
2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon dried basil
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon garlic salt
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
loaf of Italian bread
Make a marinade by whisking together all of the ingredients except for the chicken and bread. Add chicken to the marinate, cover with a tight fitting lid. Refrigerate overnight, stirring occasionally.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken in the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes. Chicken is done once the center is no longer pink.
Place one-tenderloin on the bread. Enjoy!
