Mini chicken on a stick, corn on the cob in a cup, paletas by Molly O’Connell
SAN ANTONIO – Missing chicken on a stick? How about corn in a cup? Junior chef Molly O’Connell has you covered with these tasty recipes.
Mini chicken on a stick
• Frozen chicken nuggets
• Small pickles
• Nacho jalapenos
• Whole rib of celery
Bake the chicken as directed on package. Skewer each nugget on a toothpick, top with pickle or jalapeno. Poke toothpicks into a rib of celery. It has its own little holder!
Corn on a cob in a cup
• Corn on the cob
• 1 tablespoon cream cheese for each ear of corn (mayo or sour cream will work, too)
• 1 tablespoon butter for each ear of corn
• Cotija cheese crumbles
• Lime wedges
Cut the ends of the corn on the cob, cut into two mini cobs and bake the corn at 425°F for 7 minutes.
Mix the cream cheese and butter together.
Place each corn cob in its own cup, top with cream cheese mixture, sprinkle on Cotija cheese and Tajin, then garnish the cup with a lime wedge.
• 1/4 cup lime juice
• 1/2 cup sparkling water
• 1/4 cup sugar
Blend ingredients in blender. Pour mixture into popsicle molds. Place in freezer overnight. Chill out and enjoy!
