Delicious Gambling Food: Honey Coated Crunchy Chicken Fingers
Gambling is a lot of fun. This activity has been around since as long as people can remember. While nowadays, several gambling games can now be played using a machine or online, gambling games like poker are still primarily social activities, which involve people interacting with one another. Casinos and other such gambling establishments have become the economic lifeblood of cities like Las Vegas and Atlantic City; giving people a place where they can play gambling games like roulette, blackjack, poker, and backgammon.
For those who would prefer to forego the cost of going all the way to a casino, or want to bond with friends, co-workers, or relatives, holding a gambling part or a poker party is a fun way to do so.
Of course, if you plan on hosting a poker party, a get-together would not be complete without food. If you would like to eat while playing a game of Texas Hold'em at the same time, it is a good idea to try to make foods that are easy to eat with just one hand. Finger foods and other kinds of party food are great for poker parties. If you have trouble figuring out what kind of food to serve at poker night, here is a great recipe to try:
Honey Coated Crunchy Chicken Fingers
1/4 cup slightly warmed honey 1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts 1 cup corn flakes, crushed 1/4 cup water
At least ten minutes before you place your chicken fingers into the over, make sure to preheat it to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure to wipe butter on the baking sheet, or spray it with baking spray, so that the chicken fingers don't stick to the baking sheet. While waiting for the oven to heat up, you can use this time to prepare the chicken fingers.
First, thaw out your chicken breasts, and cut them into strips 1/4 inch wide. If you want, you can slice the fingers into thicker or narrower strips, depending on your preference. In a separate container, such as a medium-sized bowl, combine the water and the honey together. Put the crushed corn flakes on a plate.
Dip you chicken strips in the honey mixture, and then coat them in corn flakes, by rolling them over the corn flakes plate. Arrange the prepared chicken fingers on the baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes turning them over after five minutes. If the chicken isn't cooked yet after ten minutes, bake them a while longer. This mixture makes six servings, great to keep the poker night munchies at bay.
