Ok, so this isn't going to be one of my usual blog posts with recipes and photos and sunny recountings of how much I enjoyed making or baking whatever delicious foods described.
Every once in a very great while I either completely flub a recipe (we all remember the super-briny chicken that resulted when I misread a measurement for salt!), yet I maintain in this case I did nothing wrong. I fully and completely blame the recipe!
Last night I planned on cooking up Sesame Chicken for dinner. All was going well until I started on the sauce...when I first started I thought it was a little thick, so I added a little more chicken broth to thin it down. The sauce seemed to draw more power from the broth and got even thicker until it became the consistency of jell-o...and had an incredibly greasy oil-like slick on the top of it.
What. The. Crap.
My husband gamely walked into the kitchen after his run, took one look at my sour face and offered to try the gooey sauce. He maintains it wasn't "that" bad...but he's one of the nicest people in the world, especially when it comes to my food, so we still decided to transfer the contents of the pan into the garbage and go get pizza. Thank you Little Caesar's and your super-cheap "Hot n' Ready" pizza!
When I scraped the contents of the skillet into the garbage, it all slid out in one disgusting gelatinous piece...talk about losing your appetite...I didn't eat for a good 2 hours after that. Ugh.
The recipe I tried is this one, if any of you want to give it a shot and get better results, please share the wisdom!
