Easter Egg Recipe – Deviled Egg Chicks

Easy and fun Easter Egg Recipe. A creative spin on traditional dressed eggs. Deviled egg chicks were the talk of my kitchen - the cutest Easter chicks! | natashaskitchen.com

This is truly a fun Easter Egg Recipe. These deviled egg chicks are a little bit hilarious but they will be the talk of your kitchen! Traditional dressed eggs are fun, but this year come out of your shell (get it? ha ha) and turn them into chicks!!

Easter egg chicks are absolutely adorable. Adding the fresh parsley at the base gives them that “free range” feel that everyone is after. Chirp, chirp, chirp…

I had so much fun making these and then I laughed at how cute they were. The last one looks a little like my youngest sisters’ baby pictures! 

Ingredients for Deviled Egg Chicks:

12 large eggs, hard boiled and peeled
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard*, or add to taste
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp salt, or to taste
1 small carrot, peeled and sliced into rings
6 black olives

How to Make Deviled Egg Chicks:

1. Peel 12 hard-boiled eggs. With a sharp knife, slice off a very thin layer from the base of the egg – this will give it a flat surface to stand on a platter. Cut off a generous top third of the egg. Squeeze around the egg base gently to loosen the yolk and it should pop right out. Keep the lids paired with their bases.

Tip: If you have troubling peeling eggs, try peeling under a slow stream of water. Very fresh eggs do not peel easily so I usually boil a few extra eggs to be on the safe side.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine 12 cooked yolks and mash well with a fork. Add 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1 1/2 tsp dijon (or add to taste), 1/4 tsp garlic powder and 1/8 tsp salt, or season to taste. Mash everything together until smooth. Transfer mixture to ziploc or pastry bag and pipe generously into egg bases. Place top 1/3 back over the base and press down slightly to adhere.

3. For the eyes, poke through an olive with a plastic straw several times then gently squeeze down the straw and the little circles of olives will pop right out. For the beaks, thinly slice a few rings of carrot and cut each ring into sixths. Insert 2 olive spots for eyes and 2 carrot wedges the beak. Set chicks on a platter and garnish with fresh parsley or dill to give them that “free range” feel.

    Made these yesterday and they turned out awesome. I used a carrot peeler tip to poke around the the egg to cut the top off for a more cracked egg look. thanks! Reply

    I’m gonna make these again. I made them before and they’re so delicious! The yolks with the dijon and seasonings are super good! Mines didn’t turn out that neat. But still, they tasted good. 😉 By the way, you should definitely make a video for this recipe. These little chicks are so cute! 🙂 God bless you Natasha! Reply

    These tend to disappear faster than I can make them! Another way of getting the olive eyes out easily is by covering the end of the straw with a layer of plastic wrap. The straw still cuts into the olive, but the eye quickly pops out! Reply

    Thank you for this fun recipe. I will be making it for Easter Sunday. Have you ever tried steaming your eggs vs boiling them? I put my eggs in a steamer basket for 15 min or so and then refrigerate them. The shell comes off incredibly easily once the eggs are cold enough; no more ripped whites. Reply

      Hi Chris, thank you so much for sharing! I wonder if that would make our own eggs (from our chickens) easier to peel. I will have to try that!! Reply

    This popped up for me on Yummly so I marked it for Easter. I didn’t get it quite as smooth as yours and peeling the shells took forever. But they made for very cute Easter table guests 🙂 Thank you! Reply

    You look like you papa)
    And i just noticed that your son looks like you when you were pictured)
    wow!
    Natasha, your chicks look fantastic!
    Question:
    will it be okay to make these a day in advance? along with eyes and beaks?
    and…
    how does the creamy filling taste? Sour and not really?
    Thank you for sharing with another great recipe! You keep working on improving your readers’ cooking and food decorating skiils😉👍 Reply

      Hi Viktoriya! I’ve always thought I looked like my Dad the most also :). He has a kid picture where he looks like a copy of me in my kid pictures :). These are ok to make the day before along with the eyes and beaks. They don’t really taste sour but if you wanted to make them a little more mild, I would suggest using just 1 tsp of dijon instead of the 1.5 tsp. I hope you enjoy them! 🙂 Reply
