I had KFC rice porridge today for lunch. No, the porridge was not bought from KFC. My enterprising grandmother took our left over KFC chicken pieces (the ones we hadn’t eaten) and simmered them together with some rice grains and water to make the porridge! I know, the idea sounds terrible. Overfried chicken pieces with the crispy flour batter and skin still on, floating around in the soupy porridge. Kentucky Fried Chicken porridge, what was she thinking?!?! But let me tell you, it tastes great!!!!
You know KFC chicken is so oily and decadent, you can’t really gorge on it because you get sick of it quite quickly. However, with the porridge water diluting the oiliness, the porridge retains the flavour of the 11 secret spices without giving you the sickly feeling.
I just had 2 bowls of the porridge and there’s still half a pot left, made with just 1 chicken thigh and 1 chicken drumstick. Try it!
Your grandma sounds very sweet and doting. I’m sure the porridge was very yummy! Your alphabet bowl is cute too!
Yes it was extra yummy because it was cooked by her! I believe we’ve had this bowl for more than 10 years…hence the alphabets…
This is grossly interesting. I have no doubts about the flavour part. When I end up with an unfinished tub of KFC, I’ll sure give it a try, sans the skin.
Desperation leads to innovation! My grandmother doesn’t believe in throwing the skin away. I’ll have to hide the skin before I give it to her. Thanks for stopping by!
