Crunchy Monster Claws
1 small sweet yellow pepper
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning, divided
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/2 cups cornflake crumbs
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut lengthwise into 3/4-inch strips
Cut yellow pepper into 15 triangles; set aside. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour and 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning. Place eggs in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine the cornflake crumbs, green onion and remaining Cajun seasoning.
Place a few pieces of chicken in bag; seal and shake to coat. Dip in eggs, then in crumb mixture. Place on a greased baking sheet. Repeat. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until juices run clear.
Cut a small slit into one end of each chicken strip; insert a pepper triangle into each. Serve with barbecue sauce. Yield: 15 appetizers.
