Can someone please explain to me why there are still commercials for Kentucky Fried Chicken in 2016?
When we all know about trans fat and growth hormones, for the love of god someone, why are there still KFC commercials?
I remember this one time, I think I told this story here before, I remember this one time I went to a farmers market and asked for an all natural chicken.
You eat a regular fucking chicken…first of all it’s going to look like a pigeon to you, we’re so used to those roided up ones that they sell at the supermarkets.
Lined up like they’re on Murderers Row, as big as goddamn turkeys except it’s a chicken.
Breasts bigger than the cast of Real Housewives and Jersey Shore – in my world, that’s not a chicken.
Anyway, I went down to the farmer’s market and I said, “I want an all natural chicken.”
The guy goes, “these are all natural.”
And I said, “all natural??”
And he goes, “well… “
I’m like, “come on… whereee is it?”
And he had to walk around the corner.
I followed him and it’s sitting over there, lonely.
Looking like somebody killed a goddammn dove.
He goes, “That one over there, that’s all natural, nothing’s wrong with it, that’s 100% all natural.”
And I was like, “That’s what a chicken is supposed to look like!!?!”
And he raised his eyebrows and he kind of put his lips together so they were a straight line and then he nodded.
You know that look that people do like yeah, I’m in The Matrix, I realize I’m in The Matrix but this is the only way –
That was the look this guy gave me.
And look I’m not saying KFC isn’t delicious, even I get weak in the knees for some Popeye’s but can we tone down the ads?
I don’t need to see 5 commercials for KFC in the space of an hour, I don’t.
Jesus christ, going to the gym everyday is already hard enough.
What I Used
A dozen 6″ skewers. 4 Chicken Breasts Fillets. 1/4 cup Rice Vinegar. 3 tbsp Fish Sauce. 3 tbsp Soy Sauce. 1/4 cup Hoisin Sauce. 2 tsp minced Garlic (more if you like garlic). 3 tbsp Maple Syrup (substitute 2 tbsp honey). 1/4 cup Sriracha Sauce (less if you don’t like spicy). Olive Oil. Salt. Pepper.
What I Did
This makes 12-14 skewers with about 3 per person.
If you want to make a meal out of it, it’ll go great with a side of rice or on top of a salad.
Start by combining the rice vinegar, fish sauce, hoisin sauce, minced garlic, maple syrup and sriracha sauce in a small sauce pan.
Place the pan over medium heat, thoroughly mixing the sauce.
When it starts to boil, remove from heat and set aside.
Preheat your broiler.
Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces.
Pour 2 tbsp olive oil over the pieces and season lightly with salt and pepper.
Really rub the salt and pepper into the chicken pieces, don’t half ass this.
Thread a few pieces onto each skewer, leaving about a inch at the base so you can still grip the skewer.
Place the speared skewers on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Brush both sides of each skewer with the sauce mixture.
You might want to consider wrapping the bottom of the skewers with additional tin foil before you place them in the oven.
The heat from the broiler will smoke the wood a little but the smell will pass if you chose not to.
Place the baking tray in the broiler and broil for 5 mins or until the side up begins to brown.
Then turn the skewers over, brush the side up with more of the sauce and place back in the broiler until that side is equally browned/slightly charred.
Remove from oven.
If you still have some sauce remaining, brush the rest on top of the skewers.
