Does this look bad?

People on chinese forum say this looks bad... do you think so?
This is my first time making chicken scallopini. The chicken is a bit thick for authenticity, but... I really don't like the thin skinny chicken cutlets served in restaurants. I like the texture similar to a schnitzel so I made it thick. Sauce is lime (ran out of lemon) caper with mushroom. Served on plain risotto

no, hyp, it looks delicious and you should stop worrying about what no-nothing internet users think otherwise.

Well, it doesn't look like Chinese food. It looks fine for a chicken scallopine and risotto.

I think it looks fine. I think the problem is you are posting to a Chinese Cooking forum but you are not cooking Chinese and I am guessing they are looking for things to be photographed and presented in a certain way.

It looks fine to me. But why is the chicken orange?

Whether or not people say it looks bad, or don't say anything at all, shouldn't really matter if you are happy with it.
I'd eat it.

Why do you keep going back to that Chinese forum? I remember another dish you posted that they did not approve of. Your dish looks fine to me. :)))

I mean.. I'm not looking for any professional looks, I just wonder when you look at it, does it make you feel like to eat it? I don't understand why the chinese people just don't like anything I make

I need some clarification. Is the Chinese forum a Chinese food forum or a different kind of forum?

They may be trying to prove that a white man can't cook. Hate to say it that way but I get some of that on my YT videos.

Back to the original question which one would you prefer to eat yours or this one.



Looks to me that you are shooting in low light. Also read your cameras manual and look for a food setting.
