Sweet and Sour Chicken
The only word I can use to summarize this dish is nasty. It was awful. We couldn't eat it and ended up throwing it away. Even looking at the picture of it is turning my stomach. Nasty! *Please note there are many variations of sweet and sour slow cooker chicken. The one I made had chopped red peppers. I don't know if the others are any good or not.
Lemon Garlic Chicken
It might be a little harsh to put this dish in this post, as it wasn't truly horrible. I could eat it. J couldn't, but he's much more particular than I am. It just tasted like chicken marinated in lemon juice, and had the most bizarre aftertaste.
Cafe Rio Chicken
This was probably the most disappointing. It smelled delicious and I had high hopes. However, it tasted similar to how teenage boy socks smell. We even tried washing the chicken off and covering it with barbecue sauce to see if it could disguise the taste, but to no avail. This was another one that ended up in the garbage.
Cilantro Lime Chicken
Perhaps I should have avoided this one, seeing as I'm not a big fan of cilantro. It was odd. Something about the mix of cilantro and lime and beans and chicken just didn't work. We ate enough of the corn and beans to call it a meal, but avoided the chicken. Never again.
So there you have it. You'll notice there are no after photos. That's because, given how gross these were, I didn't plan on sharing them with you. With that said, we all love a fail, so who cares if the photos aren't great, right?
