The Story of My Fried Chicken
Let me tell you a little story. I usually cook chicken stew because it is one of the easiest meal to prepare. It also serves as a one pot dish as there are vegetables in it too. I have been alternating chicken stew and fried fish for the past months that the boys can tell today is chicken stew day and tomorrow they’ll know they will get fried fish. They love both the chicken stew and fried fish with golden garlic chunks on it so there is no complaining from their side.
But I wanted to surprise them one day. Yesterday, I decided to fry chicken for them and I did.
I bought ready mix flour for my fried chicken. I’m not sure what those white specks are but these are yums!
Now, here is where my story begins. It takes me less than 15 minutes to cook chicken stew because I can leave it stewing on its own on the stove while I mind my own things but to fry chicken, I will have to stand in front of the wok for hours! That means I will need the elder brother Ethan to look after Ayden and pray hard that they don’t fight and throw each other out of the house. Frying fish doesn’t take as long neither.
So, after hours slaving in front of the hot wok for these fabulous fried chicken (though they don’t look as good in photo), I was very excited to serve my THREE boys dinner.
What happened was, the Daddy casually took a piece of chicken, remove the skin and pass it to Ethan. Ethan said he wants the chicken entirely with the skin intact but the Daddy said, “NO, it is very hot these days and eating it like that is heaty”. He gave Ethan a small piece of crunchy skin to eat though.
Then, when it comes to the Daddy’s turn, he too removed the skin before eating the chicken. Now, you tell me, why would I slave in the hot kitchen for hours if they are all gonna dispose the crunchy skin and eat only the meat? Grrr… I should have known because this is how the Daddy eats his KFC too.
FINE. Chicken stew and fried fish for the rest of the year for you guys. Maybe one day I’ll just bake bread and you boys can have just ROTI for dinner! Hmph! >_<
