When I was growing up, I remember getting the paper every Sunday and pulling out the Comics section. Of the 4 page spread, the Peanuts comic was my absolute favorite. I loved reading about Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Lucy. I particularly loved when Snoopy imagined to be the Flying Ace, and would let out the battle cry, “Curse you, Red Baron!”.
Even though I am now, for all intents and purposes, a grown-up, I am still so excited to see The Peanuts Movie, which is being released on November 6! I am even more excited that I get to take my daughter to the show, and see her fall in love with the characters like I did.
To celebrate the debut of The Peanuts Movie on the big screen, I thought it would be fun to watch classic Peanuts movies and create a kid-friendly snack to enjoy with them! We decided to make Flying Ace’s Bones, which is a simple, yet fun treat that my five-year-old can help with. They are also the perfect size for a handheld snack, which makes them great for little kids. I may make a batch of these for our next get-together!
I chose to use Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips, available in a 3 lb bag at Sam’s Club. Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips are 100% all natural, fully cooked and contain 15 grams of protein. They are great to have on hand for easy prep for your family!
Flying Ace’s Bones
- Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips
- Uncooked croissants
- Dipping Sauce (see below)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and lightly grease a baking sheet.
Wrap Tyson® crispy chicken strips with half a croissant strip, repeating until all croissants are gone. Bake in preheated oven for 12 – 15 minutes, or until croissants are cooked through and golden brown.
Dipping sauces can add a ton of tasty variety to a simple meal, and making them is a cinch! Ketchup and mustard make great dipping sauces, but if you have adventurous eaters, here are some quick and easy dipping sauce ideas:
- BBQ Sauce: In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of ketchup, 1/2 cup water, 2 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp molasses, salt and pepper. Simmer over medium heat few minutes, stirring occasionally, then serve.
- Asian Sauce: In a small bowl, combine 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1.5 tbsp water, a dash of rice wine vinegar, 1/4 tsp sesame oil, and 1 tsp brown sugar. Mix well and serve.
- Alfredo Sauce: In a small saucepan, melt 1/4 cup of butter over medium-high heat. Add in 1 cup heavy cream, simmer for 5 minutes, then add in 1 clove minced garlic and 1.5 cups Parmesan cheese. Stir constantly until cheese is melted, remove from heat and serve.
