There’s no question that much we locals love our chicken rice and fried chicken from the well-known fast food restaurant chain, KFC.
But there might be another way for us to enjoy both in a single plate and make the dish on our own.
The Japanese have created a simple recipe of cooking KFC chicken with rice, which is also known as Devil Cooked Rice and the internet is raving to try it out.
Facebook page 紀由屋 has been trending ever since they posted up the recipe. To make the dish, you would need soy sauce, chicken stock, KFC Original Recipe chicken and rice.
To start things off, submerge the already fried chicken into the rice cooker with some uncooked rice, water, soy sauce and chicken stock. Include as many pieces as you’d like however, do note that the flavour of the dish varies depending on the chicken parts.
Also to be extra, you can add more ingredients such as onions, carrots, mushrooms and so on to the mix.
Close the lid and let the rice cooker do its job. Honestly, it’s such a simple way of cooking dinner if you don’t feel like going out.
When it is cooked, you can expect the aroma and taste of the rice to be rich in the flavour of herbs and spices from the chicken. As for the chicken, it should be tender and juicy.
Before you dig in, don’t forget the last part which is tearing the fried chicken to little pieces and mixing it with the rice.
To add more flavours to the dish, you can season it with a bit of salt and pepper and voilà!
Also, some asked if the dish only works with KFC’s fried chicken but to creative thinkers out there, you can go ahead and try your versions but don’t forget to share it with us!
