I served my husband raw chicken for dinner.

When I make things like this skillet, I always make some sort of hearty main for him. I’m not a witch, you guys. I love him & want him to have a full tummy at all times.

Y’all know I meal prep. I make just about everything we eat on Sunday & we eat it throughout the week. So imagine how busy Sundays are for this little kitten. I’m wheelin’ & dealin’ in the kitchen all the live long day. I have 8 things cooking at any given time. Up until this point, I really thought I had mastered the art of multi-tasking in the kitchen.

Then he bit into the buffalo drummies I made him. & promptly spat them back out. Look, the last couple of weeks he has complained that I have overcooked all of his chicken. I was bound & determined to impress him this week. So I bake the drummies for the bare minimum, pull ’em out, let ’em cool, pop ’em in the fridge. I’m beaming with pride! What a lovely dinner for the love of my life to enjoy after a long day. Buffalo drummies & some delicious roasted veggies & beans. Candles are lit, conversation is flowing, & then BABAM. Pink chicken.

Anything that cooks for 40 minutes & is still raw on the inside should not be allowed on the marketplace anyways.

    This looks so lovely!!! Bless you for making everything on Sunday. I tried that at my boyfriend’s apartment and it FAILED. Like SOS SEND HELP.

    When I undercooked chicken once, my boyfriend actually had no idea and ate the chicken. HE JUST ATE IT ANYWAY. I don’t know if I should be happy or like scared for his wellbeing when I’m not around him.

      OMG did he get sick?! Or does he have the stomach of a tank?? Took many tries to nail the Sunday prep thing. Still fail most Sundays in one way or another. But it definitely helps relieve weeknight stress!

        HE NEVER GETS SICK. It’s incredible. I eat too many bananas in a week and I’m broken down from being all bloated. He could wipe the mold off of food and still function!!

        How. Why. What??

    Looks so yummy!
    And I’m always worried about undercooking chicken! It really is hard to tell sometimes without butchering a chicken breast in the process to see if it’s done. haha
