Sweet chili pulled chicken dijon quinoa wrap

Mmm…pulled chicken! Pulled meats are so popular now especially pork and beef.

Last week I posted on a KFC quinoa casserole and shared to Twitter, Facebook and Google+. After I shared to twitter my friend Kate (Star Trek podcaster and aficionado extraordinaire) asked if I had included gherkins. I hadn’t but the KFC Australia twitter account claimed it would like to see a version with a gherkin.







The next night I responded after preparing a bowl of KFC quinoa casserole with a gherkin.

Here is the photograph of the gherkin surprise in the KFC quinoa casserole

That's a mighty big gherkin!

Kate suggested I further explore KFC menu ideas and mentioned pulled chicken wraps.

Over the last few days I’ve experimented a little with dijon quinoa wraps in various forms. I published a post earlier on my experiments. It’s mainly photographs but worth a look.

Do you like pulled chicken? Do you think KFC might like this as a menu idea? 

At the beginning of this post I mentioned Kate and her Star Trek podcasting. Kate has recently interviewed Doug Drexler and you can hear the podcast here
