New Recipe Night - Herb and Goat Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Breasts - Failure #1 - 2012

Finally an end to the New Recipe Night success streak.   It wasn't an epic failure, as a matter of fact John liked it, but I did not.  And really since I'm the one cooking it, it's really only my opinion that counts.  This one sort of had the deck stacked against it from the beginning.  Generally I steer clear of anything that involves stuffing anything.  I find that for the most part, my stuffings always leak out all over the pan leaving me a mess to clean up.  I also avoid anything that uses the broiler as the main method of cooking because I inevitably set off the smoke detector.  This happens often enough that now as soon as the smoke detector goes off, both John and Zack yell, "Dinner's ready!" and come running.  Whatever....
But, the promise of warm, yummy goat cheese lured me in... I love me some goat cheese, but not this goat cheese.    It was mixed with mint, parsley and panko crumbs and it just ended up being dry, which meant it didn't leak out of the chicken, but I'm not sure dry stuffing is any better than leaking stuffing.  The smoke detector did go off as predicted and the resulting chicken was sort of rubbery and weird.  Not an epic failure like the historic Peanutty Chicken, but still not a keeper.

  1. OMG! You did a peanut chicken? That was such an epic fail in my family growing up back in the stone ages that we STILL tease my mom about it 30+ years later. Peanut Chicken - an epic fail no matter the decade. :)
