Orange Chicken.. not so much.

Last night I finally made the orange chicken that I've been putting off for 2 weeks! I will go ahead and say that I didn't really like it very much, but Jason ate a ton of it which either means he liked it or he was very hungry. Or he didn't want to make me feel bad.

Anyway, the chicken cooked in the crockpot all day, then I shredded it and added...

baby corn and...

snap peas!

So then it looked like this.

It was okay, but not my favorite taste. I will say that I could have eaten the snap peas and baby corn allllllllll night. We will definitely be adding snap peas to more dinners.

Have you had a dinner turn out to not be as yummy as you hoped?


  1. i was just about to type "maybe it was the baby corn" but then I read where you said you DID like that part of the dish. I am NOT a baby corn person. (ewwww... sorry... personal opinion.) BUT i bet if you tried the recipe again and added stuff to make it sesame chicken you'd like it more. orange chicken can be so weird to taste... even most chinese restaurants don't get it done right! still, I bet it was yummy. Everything you make is yummy!

  2. I've definitely had plenty of recipes that haven't turned out like I planned. None of them absolutely unedible or anything, just probably wouldn't make them again! Oh well! Just a new excuse to have to try something new!

  3. I love that you show us what you cook for dinner! Although it usually makes me straving it gives me good ideas instead of the same old dinners.


Even if it's just to say "You so silly, Sarah" - please feel free to leave comments!
