Reality Check Recipe

While searching the internets for a comfort-food recipe to cheer us up and warm us through I stumbled upon this gem from Nigella Lawson on NPR. Two pretty big differences there guys. Do you think it was a metric/US conversion problem or a good old-fashioned typo? Whatever, recipes are like Yahoo! Maps driving directions: you should always perform a reality check first.

Haha! That IS a pretty big difference! Can you imagine the poor person who followed the recipe exactly, cutting up all those chicken thighs?? And I wonder how many bags of chips you'd have to buy to get 15 cups?

As Nigella might say, "all that and a bag of chips!" Ha!

Oh, my gosh, that's hilarious. Hope no one tried making it with the first list of ingredients!
