Host a murder mystery dinner

A murder mystery dinner is more than a party game. A murder  mystery dinner is an event that you can organize at home. A murder mystery stands for excitement, adventure but above all, it is hilarious

murder mystery game The EndMurder mystery dinner:

The red carpet is there, the cameras are adjusted and the spotlights are on. The murder mystery game The End can begin, but first: the decoration of the murder mystery dinner.

A red carpet is a must for this film premiere. Buy a red carpet at a carpet center or buy a roll of red wallpaper and tape it to the floor. Decorate your table with photos from a few gossip magazines. Perhaps you still have old photo negatives that you can wrap around a chair as a decoration.

Make a photo booth in the house where the stars of this murder mystery dinner can have their picture taken. A nice lasting reminder for Facebook or Instagram.

  • 1 can of peaches
  • 1 can of peeled tomatoes
  • 1 large can of tomato puree
  • 1 cube of chicken broth

Fry the chicken fillet briefly for three minutes. Meanwhile chop the onion and mushrooms. Add this to the chicken fillet together with the garlic, red pepper cubes, 5 tablespoons of soy sauce and 3 teaspoons of sambal. Bake this mixture briefly.

Put the peeled tomatoes in a bowl together with the tomato puree and liquefy it with the hand blender. Add the sauce to the chicken fillet with vegetables and stir well.
