Cooking With Kids Thursday: Chicken Mummy

This s a festive Halloween dinner or lunch idea.  My kids would think this was so cool.  It is a great way to involve the kids in the cooking process and still make it fun.  I will admit the directions are a bit confusing, but between them and the picture I think it is pretty easy to figure out.  Thanks for the recipe Pillsbury!

Here’s what you need to make this:

  • 1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 tablespoons garlic-and-herbs spreadable cheese (from 6.5-oz container)
  • 4 oz thinly sliced cooked deli ham
  • 1 jar (7 oz) roasted red bell peppers, drained on paper towel (I probably won’t use this)
  • 6 oz thinly sliced cooked deli chicken
  • 4 slices (2.7 oz) thinly sliced provolone cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • Sliced ripe olives, if desired
