Whisky flavoured chicken and blue cheese casserole may sound weird but the taste is amazing, especially with some nice Danish blue cheese melted throughout the chicken and vegetable mix. The flat smelt pretty good as the Danish blue was melting in the oven.
I know it’s a bit of a stretch to call this art. I don’t have an artistic bent and even my closest friends point out my lack of skill. My desire though is to improve my drawing. I remember at high school and university, to help me learn I did a lot of drawings. On graduation, I’ve also relied on drawings to help me learn and remember. While few others would appreciate them, I still like drawing to help me remember.

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
Quinoa and KFC casserole
Recipe Type: Dinner
Author: Gary Lum
I learnt a new word. Mirepoix is 2 parts onion, one part celery and one part carrot.
I cooked this in a casserole
I had the oven at 150 °C and cooked everything for about 2 hours
I sautéed the onion and leek and added the mixture to diced carrot and celery in the casserole
I broke up the meat from the chicken and added it
I added the quinoa uncooked (I had about ½ cup)
I chopped the tomatoes and added them
I added the lemon juice, a cup of white wine and enough water to see it peeking through
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
At the end of cooking I shredded some parsley and tossed it in and mixed it through
I should have added some coconut cream but I have left overs so I’ll do that another time
I plated it up with some coleslaw vegetables

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.
So have you ever used KFC in a recipe? How about a KFC casserole?
