Pretty sure what I just put into the crockpot isn't going to be edible for dinner...

two chicken breasts
chicken broth
johnnys seasoning salt
black pepper
paprika
garlic powder
oregano
dark chili powder
packet of hot sauce
tomato paste

I was going for shredded chicken for dinner but the liquid just tasted salty and peppery

I let my kid help and she was so proud of it that I didn't have the heart to toss it and start over.

Ever cook anything that doesn't taste good?

If it's awful I might be able to rinse and save the chicken.

  • The liquid is going to cook off and season the chicken. You're not going to drink it. It will be fine.

  • It was this recipe

    http://www.justapinch.com/recipes/main-course/mexican/slow-cooker-shredded-taco-chicken.html

    But I didn't have cumin and I think I mixed the broth wrong- like too much broth for the water. Then of course dumped salt and pepper in.

  • I've cooked things I didn't like the taste of, but my sweet husband is like a garbage disposal and will eat anything! I'm sure the chicken will be fine, if there's too much water it will just dilute the flavor of the seasonings.

  • It sounds to me like it will taste really good. Just wait, your house will smell heavenly pretty soon.

  • I just read your frozen burrito question 1st. Does this mean this meal was a bust? Too spicy? If so, don't feel bad. We all have our moments.

  • Sounds like it will be fine. If nothing else, take out the chicken and shred it when it's done. Leave the remaining juice in the pot.
