(One of) My best dinner disasters:
We were newly married. I had no idea how to cook. I got a can of cream of chicken soup and found a recipe on the back that looked tasty enough to try. It was a chicken casserole. (Sounds easy enough, right?) I put the mixture all together. Then it said to "Add chicken." How was I supposed to know I should season, cook, and then shred the chicken??? So I put the mixture in an 8.5x11 pan and dropped the frozen chicken breast (Defrosted at least) on top and put it in the oven. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't cooked after the 30 minutes it asked for. So I left it in for way longer until it finally wasn't pink. Then we dug in, and I couldn't understand why it tasted so awful. I figured I had bought the wrong chicken. (The kind everyone else always ate had breading on it. Was there a special breading frozen chicken I was supposed to get?) Yup, awful. What's your best dinner disaster?
