Who doesn’t love to eat fried chicken, either with rice or just as is?
If you ask a child on what food to prepare on his/her birthday, fried chicken is always there. It’s fun to eat especially when you do it by hand! And of course, if a very tasty gravy come with it.
Here in the Philippines, Jollibee serves the most popular local fried chicken which is the Chickenjoy! From the word itself, chicken + joy or chicken + enjoy! Why? Because of its “crisplylicous & juicylicious” chicken plus the very tasty gravy that even now, I make it as a rice sauce or a soup…ahaha! Crazy is it?
They say that when you eat Chickenjoy, it should be “Laman muna, balat later.” Meaning you eat the meat first, reserve the skin and eat it at the end. Well that’s what we normally do. So the enjoyment of skinning the chicken using your hands kicks in. It’s like KFC‘s “finger lickin’ good“ tag.
When my mom bought an 8-piece bucket 2 days ago, I was so happy like a child. Very excited to eat it especially if it’s hot and smelling its aroma. It brings back your childhood memories when a simple fried chicken and spag brings a lot of joy to kids. The best part of eating it, use a take out container of gravy per piece. You can’t enjoy it using 1 container for 2pcs. One extra gravy is not that expensive so why not enjoy it. 😊
