Quinoa and KFC casserole


It’s no secret that I like KFC. I’ve enjoyed Kentucky Fried Chicken and KFC for as long as I can remember, even during the 1970s and 1980s when there were rumours that some restaurants used cat instead of chicken. I wonder how Colonel Sanders would feel about a quinoa and KFC casserole. I hope he’d be happy about my making a superfood more super. I’ll let you ponder which item is the superfood

I learnt a new word. Mirepoix is 2 parts onion, one part celery and one part carrot.
  • KFC
  • Quinoa
  • Anchovies
  • Celery
  • Leek
  • Carrot
  • Onion
  • White wine
  • Parsley
  • Lemon juice
  • Tomatoes (2)
  1. I cooked this in a casserole
  2. I had the oven at 150 °C and cooked everything for about 2 hours
  3. I sautéed the onion and leek and added the mixture to diced carrot and celery in the casserole
  4. I broke up the meat from the chicken and added it
  5. I added the quinoa uncooked (I had about ½ cup)
  6. I chopped the tomatoes and added them
  7. I added the lemon juice, a cup of white wine and enough water to see it peeking through
  8. I covered the casserole with some baking paper before adding the lid (I do this because I’m lazy and don’t like cleaning the lid, i.e., I don’t like scrubbing the lid
  9. At the end of cooking I shredded some parsley and tossed it in and mixed it through
  10. I should have added some coconut cream but I have left overs so I’ll do that another time
  11. I plated it up with some coleslaw vegetables
  12. Shoot a photograph
  13. Eat the meal and ponder how it could be better
  14. Wash the dishes
  15. Post the photograph to social media and note the comments asking for the recipe
  16. Write the recipe
  17. Blog (verb)

I like adding anchovies to dishes.

A friend from work gave me some homemade quince paste so I ate it as part of a snack with blue cheese, figs and honey.
