FFwD: Cinnamon-Crunch Chicken

I'll have to admit I wasn't quite sure what a Speculoo cookie was until about a week ago.  I was having coffee with a friend and noticed the name Specullo on the wrapper of the cookie that came with my coffee.  So funny, I can't even imagine how many of those cookies I've mindlessly eaten and never knew their name.

Tonight my dinner audience consisted of my 6 year old son and 9 year old daughter.  So, when I said we were having chicken with cookies they were beyond excited!

I used a low fat creme fraiche because that's all I could find today.  I wasn't sure if 2 cookies would be enough, so I added 2 more and crushed some to sprinkle on top of the finished dish.  Served with sautéed asparagus and sugar snap peas.  It was super easy to make and a big hit in our house tonight!


  1. A perfect meal for a young audience! (The older ones in my house were very skeptical until they tried it)

  2. Such a pretty and healthy meal you made for your family, and it is so great when especially the kids like it. I'm glad I added spices...I think only a couple of cookies was not enough.

  3. love that your kids loved it! :) I bet it was a thrill for them to have cookies in their dinner! :)

  4. Yes, the cookies were a big hit! I think next time I'd add some more spices and I saw another post that even added chilies... That would be a hit with the husband. Looking forward to the madelines this week :)
