Side Mission - Green Eggs & Chicken

This is going to be a quick one.

Of course I had a last minute change of plans. Lack of ingredients required I switch recipes. So, tonight's fiasco was all about chicken fingers with spinach.

I fought with my blender for about an hour to make spinach puree. It seriously took TWO boxes of baby spinach to make 1 cup of puree. Crazy right? At least that means a little puree goes a long way.

After accidentally stabbing myself in the finger with a knife, burning my pinky, and dumping half a box of bread crumbs across the counter (clearly not my night) I ended up with GREEN chicken fingers.

They looked sort of like this (flax seeds were ground up)

The funny thing is, Brian loved them! I thought the color would turn him off, but he claimed they were delicious. I was the picky one tonight. Green chicken fingers...not my thing. After all was said and done, I estimate Brian ate about a box and a half of spinach. That pretty much makes the whole thing worth it.
