How do you like your chicken cooked? Grilled with a vinegar and soy sauce marinade? Sous vide with some fresh herbs? Simmered over some red sauce?
There are so many different ways to cook chicken breasts, but apparently the ‘technique’ you’re about to learn isn’t one of them.
A Baltimore resident named Cori Healey came home from work to find her boyfriend’s roommate cooking chicken in the oven. How nice, she thought… until she peeked through the door.
The chef in question was baking three breasts — without any signs of cooking spray, salt and pepper, or marinating sauce. All she saw were just three plain old chicken breasts sitting on the cold, bare cooking pan.
Naturally, Cori snapped a photo of the bland chicken and shared it to Twitter. “Y’all wanna get upset by the lack of seasoning on my boyfriend’s roommate’s chicken with me?!” she asked the public. “I am DISTRAUGHT. Pray for him.”
The people of Twitter were happy to commiserate with Cori’s disappointment and the photo went viral with 5,000 likes and countless comments.
“Chicken be like I DIED FOR YOUR MEAL,” one commenter wrote. “THE LEAST YOU CAN DO IS SEASON ME.”
But apparently, the unnamed roommate is defending his recipe. “My chicken is dope,” he told Cori.
