You know how sometimes despite your best intentions, things don’t work out at all like you think they will? Like when your husband tells his dad he has an open invitation to visit and then 2 days later his dad calls saying he just booked a flight for 6 days (six!) without checking to see if those days even worked for you? Or when your husband’s dad shows up for said excessively long extended visit and insists on taking you and your husband to dinner every freakin’ meal despite the fact that you have a fridge full of produce that needs to be used? Or when something you recreated off of Pinterest looks nothing like the original despite following the instructions exactly?

Nailed It/Failed It: Melt In Your Mouth Chicken

Verdict

I don’t even know. It was delicious, but there was no crispy looking coating to be found. I literally have no idea how they did it. Mine didn’t brown at all until I turned on the broiler, and even then, I did not end up with anything remotely resembling what Pinterest promised. If I had to guess, I’d say that photo doesn’t really go with that recipe. But you should make this anyway. It’s quite tasty (and incredibly easy) even if it is quite pale.

Alterations

I used Italian seasoning instead of seasoning salt and put it under the broiler for a few minutes at the end. Honestly, it probably could have gone a little longer under the broiler, but I get paranoid about burning the hell out of things with that devil contraption.

 

 

Original recipe from Foodpinsnow. (If you know where this really originated, let me know and I’ll update this post.)
