I ended up making some rice and served it all up to Other Chef, Little Man and D. It smelled DELICIOUS. The taste though, not so much. Little Man took one bite and made a face. Other Chef was eating it but definetly taking small bites, lots of sips of water and putting his fork down a lot. The person I paid the most attention to though was D. Normally D scarfs down anything we make. He loves eating at our house. D was taking small bites. His fork was put down quite a lot and same thing, lots of water. Yup, it was nasty. So I took a bite. *shakes head* No freaking way. The sauce was just too lemony. Which is a quick fix, don't get me wrong. It was just very overpowering! But the sauce was also kinda watery, not at all thick like in the picture on her site. Like I said all easy fixes but not entirely sure we will make this one again. Probably not actually.
|Looks soo good!!!|
Verdict: Probably not ever again. I am not saying its horrible, I am sure someone else can make this and it be absolutely 100% delicious. But none of us liked it. :( Maybe I might make some changes another time but it really isn't one of those recipes that I want to keep making and see if I can get it right! So if you do, good luck to you and I would love to hear it came out!!
Recipe is here:
--4 boneless, skinless chicken breast pieces or equivalent
--1/2 cup flour (or Pamela's)
--1 T kosher salt
--6 oz (1/2 can) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
--3 T brown sugar
--1 t balsamic vinegar
--3 T ketchup
--olive oil for browning chicken
--cut chicken into strips or largish chunks
--dredge in flour and salt, shake off excess
--brown chicken in a skillet with a bit of olive oil (you are not trying to cook the chicken--just give it some color and get the flour mixture to stick a bit)
--place into crockpot
--mix the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl and pour over the top of chicken pieces
--cover and cook on high for 4 hours, low for 6-8
Serve over rice, drizzle with remaining sauce.
