Well, I knew it was going to happen eventually…. Ladies and gents, we’ve had our first “foodie flop.“
Today, I tried “melt in your mouth chicken.” The original recipe is pinned here. The resulting chicken was WAY too salty. I could hardly eat more than a few bites.
I admit it’s possible that I mucked up while measuring for the yogurt and seasoning mixture, but I’m fairly sure I didn’t.
I’m not saying this is a horrible “do not use under any circumstances” recipe. Just scale back the seasoning salt, a lot. Maybe use 1/2 tsp to start out with, and if it doesn’t seem like enough, gradually add a little more until you’re satisfied.
Compared to the salt problem, this isn’t much of an issue, but my chicken did not turn out crunchy and beautiful like the pinned picture. Instead, it looked lifeless, mushy and questionable, despite my best efforts to dress it up.
Well, what do you think? Have you tried making this recipe before? Did it turn out for you? Or do you have a better pin for an alternative to fried chicken? I’d love to know!
Until Monday, happy pin-testing!
