    Why does my chicken recipe smell like cow dung?

    So I bought a bag of frozen chicken file.

    I like chicken because its tasty, cheap, low fat and good quality meat.

    I took a frozen file and put it in the microwave on 950 watts for 5 minutes to thaw it. Afterwards I chopped it up into peices and fried it in a pan til all chicken was properly cooked. Then I added chili, curry, salt and some milk.

    Now it smells exactly like cow dung.

    The taste is just fine but it smells like cow dung!


    Why is that?

    Obvious question: was the chicken odiferous when you opened it?

    Its the 5 minutes on 950 watts, thats what ****s the chicken up. I am pretty sure that the defrost mode on your microwave is a much lower setting than 950.

    But the taste is just fine. Granted had I used creme instead of milk it would have probably tasted even more. Its just the smell thats wierd. Milk and curry + meat and then heated should smell good.

    I personally think curry smells like dung to begin with, so I guess I am just not the best judge of this sort of thing.

    ^^^^^ What he said.

    Johnny, do you even own a cookbook, or do you just wing it?

    Have you ever cooked defrosted chicken in a microwave? If you did than you know it kinda explodes. Now the thing that makes your chicken explode is heated gas. In a frozen chicken them vapors cannot get away and stay in the chicken, hence the smell.

    The thing about curry is it smells alot better of you drop it in hot oil.

    Nuking chicken is always a bad thing to do. Get yourself a gas BBQ and learn to cook.

    I'm almost certain it's because of the time in the microwave. Why'd you do that? You don't need to defrost it if you're going to pan-fry it in pieces.

    P.S. It took me ages to figure out you meant "fillet". I was trying to imagine file-shaped pieces of chicken.

    Liar, curry smells great. It only has the colour and consistency of baby poo.

    I put it in the microwave because it was frozen and I needed to chop it up into peices which was hard to do with an ice block.

    How many times are you going to **** your food before you give in and take a cooking class?

    Your only other option is a Russian bride but I hear they come with "conditions" and only cook cabbage, so that really isn't a step up.

    hey Im slowly learning here. This food only smelled like crap. It tasted great.

    Yeah, no. I dont need a 7 feet lumberjack with a beard named Olga with a flanel shirt that could benchpress me.


    Or do I.....

    Well, leaving it for ten minutes or so to thaw would also work.

    If the chicken is partly frozen it's easier to cut (goes for a lot of meat) - be careful though, I actually cut my finger on the ice once. Boy, that **** me.

    I know that was a light-hearted post about many an other thing, but still I need to say this: don't you be talking down the Russian cuisine, boy! :smiley:

    The stereotype they'd only eat ??, the cooked cabbage or cabbage soup, could not be any farther from the truth. You should at least know the other soup with the same funny "s", ????, if you want to swing that way. :smiley:
