Food Diary9: I’m a Chicken Holic. Cluck!!

Since I came to Australia, I have been eating chicken in every meal. Australia is such a nice place to buy chicken because they sell all parts of chicken separately. And the price is very reasonable too! In Korea, especially countryside like my hometown, we don’t have many choices for buying chicken. It’s always one whole chicken, we’re even ask to chop it up. So when I saw the big butcher section at Woolworths (big grocery store in Australia), my eyes opened so widely with surprise!They sell chicken breast, thigh fillet, wings, marinated skewers, schnitzel etc. So good!! :D

Once a week, I buy 2kg each of chicken breast and thigh fillet. And spent almost an hour and a half to remove the fats and chop them all which I so hate. After chopping, I always get a stiff neck. Massage please…

I'm a professional butcher :)

But when I finish chopping and packing, I feel like being rich. Look at my  freezer! It’s so full.

Usually, I slice chicken breast for making schnitzel and chop leftover chicken breast and thigh fillet. Pack them 170g each for one serving. My boyfriend and I always confused what’s in each bag, so need small notes :) It helps a lot!

However, imagine eating chicken everyday. It can be very boring, isn’t it? That’s why I tried to make a variety of chicken dishes as many as possible. So it looks and tastes different every time. In addition, it inspires me to create more and more yummy meals. I just fell in love with chicken haha…

Here are some of dishes which I eat with chicken :)

Orange chicken schnitzel with garlic fried rice

  1. Lovely pictures! Impressed you made all the dishes yourself. Are you studying to be a professional chef?
    Discovered your site through your YouTube videos, which I liked very much. Both your web-site & YouTube videos are easy to follow and show your love of cooking.

  2. Why don’t you develop a Korea recipes book?
