This week’s Halloween meal idea is a soup and salad combo. I will show you how to make the salad today and come back tomorrow with a seasonal soup recipe.
I started with a simple salad of lettuce, cucumbers, carrots and avocado. You could swap in any salad vegetables you like really. Next add some cooked chicken for protein. I sauteed a chicken breast in a skillet for my salad, but you could use rotisserie chicken or leftover cooked chicken to save time.
The real fun of this salad idea comes with the crunchy wonton crisps you add at the end. These are really so easy to make. All you need is uncooked wonton wrappers, some small Halloween themed cookie cutters and 4 minutes to bake. The one watch out I will give you is to keep an idea on the wonton wrappers while they are cooking. They go from perfectly cooked to over cooked very quickly. Otherwise these crunchy wonton toppers are a cinch to make.
Wonton Salad Toppers
Prep: 3-5 minutes - Cook time: 3-4 minutes
- refrigerated uncooked wonton wrappers
- non-stick cooking spray
- garlic salt
- small Halloween themed cookie cutters
Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
Place an uncooked wonton wrapper on a cutting board. Use cookie cutters to cut out halloween shapes (bats, ghosts, cats etc). Place cut outs on prepared baking sheet (single layer, not touching).
Spray wonton cut outs with nonstick cooking spray. Flip wonton cut out over and spray the reverse side. Sprinkle with garlic salt.
Bake for 3-4 minutes until wontons crisp up and just start to turn a little brown around the edges. Keep a close eye on while baking so that they don’t over cook.
Use cooked wonton crisps to top salad. Serve and enjoy.

It is the third and final day of this week’s Halloween meal build. Today I am dishing up the main attraction – Witches’ Fingers. Combine these tasty “Witches’ Fingers” with the “Roasted Toadstools” and “Dragon Tails and Scales” from the past 2 days and you have one boo-licious Halloween dinner!
Witches’ Fingers are really easy to create. They are simply panko encrusted chicken fingers with almond slices add to give the effect of finger nails. I used sweet chili sauce to attach the nails but you could use ketchup to get the same effect if you prefer. Just be sure you let the chicken cool a bit before you attach the almond slices. If the chicken is too hot the chili sauce will melt and the almond sliced may slide right off before you can serve.
You may notice that all three of my dishes for this week’s Halloween meal are baked in the oven. They all cook at the same temperature so yo can put everything in and walk away while it cooks. Just keep an eye on the food. Depending on your oven, having a fully packed oven may extend the cook time by a minute or two.
Hope this frightfully good meal gets you in the Halloween spirit. Make sure you check back in next when I will dish up another complete meal idea all dressed up for your Halloween festivities.
Witches’ Fingers (a.k.a Chicken Fingers)
Prep time: 10 minutes - Bake time: 20-25 minutes - Makes: 4 servings
- 4 chicken breasts
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Italian Panko crumbs
- Sweet Chili Sauce
- Sliced almonds
- non-stick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400º F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
Cut chicken breasts into strips (4 per breast). Dip strips into beaten eggs. Roll in panko crumbs. Place on prepared baking sheet so that none of the strips are touching. Spray encrusted strips generously with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked.
Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes. After the chicken strips have cooled you can assemble the “fingers”. Place a dollop of the sweet chili sauce on one side of a slice of almond. Place almond slice chili side down on the tip of a chicken strips to look like the witches’ finger nail.
Serve “Witches’ Fingers” with extra chili sauce for dipping if desired.
