Crockpot Chicken Fail

Tonight I made a crock pot dinner that I found on Pinterest.

It looks pretty decent right?



It was called "THE BEST Parmesan garlic chicken in a crockpot."

I can tell you first hand that you shouldn't believe everything you read on Pinterest. One time I saw a pin that said you could burn 2000 calories by doing 100 jumping jacks. It looked so legit! It had a picture of a super fit girl with abs and a cool font on it. I was so confused as to why Trent and I weren't including that in our workouts. Long story short, I told Trent about my new found exercise with amazing calorie burning capabilities, and he told me that was a complete lie. I still haven't lived that one down.

So the dinner called for brown rice soaked in chicken broth, raw chicken on top and some spices, wine and olive oil drizzled over that. (I would link the recipe, but I promise you don't want it.)

I put it on high for 3-4 hours (I started it over my lunch). When I got home it looked pretty good! Maybe a little dry, but I wasn't too worried.


Trent agreed is smelled nice and tried to be all encouraging that it probably wasn't so bad. Then, he took his first bite....

After a few seconds of no response I look over at him and see the look on his face.

He was OBVIOUSLY hiding how terrible it was! I laughed. He tried not to laugh AND SPEWED DRY CHICKEN ALL OVER OUR TABLE!!!!!



This wasn't just dry chicken. I mean the second you put it in your mouth (that's what she said) this chicken turned into POWDER! It was a similar sensation to when you're at the dentist and they have you bite down on the suction tube thingy. All. Moisture. Gone.

Trent kindly compared it to doing the cinnamon challenge (example here). If you would have seen his RIDICULOUS reaction, you might have thought he was doing the challenge himself.

I asked Trent about how often he would be willing to eat this. His response: "Probably once a year."

So there you have it. The WORST Parmesan garlic chicken in a crockpot ever.
