This is what I had for dinner tonight. It’s Chicken Stuffed with Shrimp Etouffee.*
(This is a photo from the chicken website. I wish I had those green dishes!)
Doesn’t it look delicious? I will say this – it totally was. I bought it from my local Future Farmers of America for a fundraiser back in November. When I cut into it though, I felt like this woman (remember her?):
Except I was hollering, “Where’s the shrimp?!” That isn’t the disturbing part though. I only told you that part so I could bring up the little old lady from the Wendy’s commercials. And because I like to keep you on your toes.
The disturbing part was the chicken itself. It was entirely boneless … except for the wings! It was like a humongous boneless chicken breast with 2 random wings stuck on it. Almost like prosthetics for chickens. If you’re going to go to the trouble to remove all those bones, why not remove all the bones?! Yick. How do you think that development meeting went?
Guy A: I have this awesome idea for boneless chicken breast stuffed with shrimp etouffee. But I just feel like it’s missing something.
Guy B: I know! We have some extra wings lying around that Hooters refused shipment on. Let’s stick them onto your gourmet chicken!
Guy A: Yes, let’s! That is the most brilliant idea I have ever heard!
*I don’t want to give the name of the manufacturer since I’m making fun of the chicken even though it really was delicious and I don’t want people to think badly of the company.
