So recently I’ve been checking out a blog called Beyond Kimchee, which is basically about Korean cooking and beyond. One post that caught my attention was called Korean Fried Chicken, KFC vs KFC – it basically just made my mouth water! So I decided that this weekend I would make BBQ chicken; I even decided to make the BBQ sauce from scratch (I do like a challenge):
At this point I would like to explain the title of my post. See, I bought all the ingredients for my home-made BBQ sauce – I also bought HP BBQ Sauce as back up should my BBQ sauce fail. My homemade BBQ sauce failed - it didn’t look or taste like BBQ sauce (boo!). I thought it would be kinder to my taste buds and stomach to whip out the HP BBQ Sauce, warm it up and smother that on my fried chicken…..and I do not regret it!
|It started well....|
|Really not what i had in mind; it ended up being sweetened|
tomato sauce :-/
|HP BBQ Sauce came to the rescue!|
|Yeah, it tasted GOOD!! my beloved KA Karibbean Kola was the perfect accompaniment!|
So even though I cheated (a little bit), the BBQ chicken was more or less a success – I got the seal of approval from my siblings! I will definately make this again in the future - just gonna have to work at perfecting the homemade BBQ sauce…..
