Here at Shrinking Kitchen, we love Hunger Games.
Okay, we’re obsessed with Hunger Games. So much so, we decided we needed to do a ‘tribute’ to our beloved series in honor of the movie release today. Over this weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), we’ll be sharing a Hunger Games themed menu based upon our favorite characters. Stay tuned for a bunch of fun and delicious recipes!
Woody Harrelson (a fellow Texan!) as Haymitch Abernathy? GENIUS!
In case you’re wondering, one of my favorite Woody Harrelson movies is Kingpin. Classic.
I read online the only thing that worried Woody was that he might overdo the drunkeness because ‘he tends to go over the top.‘ Awesome.
In honor of a performance that will no doubt take over as my favorite from Woody, I present you with Drunk Chicken. It’s got tequila, lime, and a little salt. I threw in a jalapeño and onion to spice things up, and a little brown sugar for some sweetness. Throw it all in your slow cooker, and rest assured that your dinner will be like a gift floating down from the sky right to your table…..
And here it is, the Haymitch-Wich. I used a FlatOut Bread FoldIt, some fresh cilantro, slice red bell peppers and I topped it with a lime-sour cream-cilantro mixture. You can also roll it up in a tortilla, or just eat it straight out of the slow cooker with your fingers. I won’t tell anyone, just make sure you’ve got a tequila chaser ready to go!
