I love KFC but I just don’t understand the current craze with the new KFC burger. For one, I dislike barbeque sauce in any food. And thinking of slapping cheese and bacon on my KFC with a mix barbeque sauce in a mouthful is enough to make me sick. The alternative to KFC which is a healthier but equally as tasty chicken is my version of roast chicken with peas and tomato salad.

The secret ingredient in this recipe is a wonder packet of Four Seasons Spicy Bake Mix powder which is made specifically for roasting chicken. A box which costs about $4 comes with six individually wrapped packets of baking powder and is readily available in most Asian grocery shops. Although labelled “spicy”, there is absolutely no hint of spice in this wonder powder which is actually a good thing because it is pretty damn tasty in itself.

    That looks delicious, although I do love my KFC chicken pieces, I only eat them once or twice a year.

  2. What a fabulous dinner. Your chicken looks wonderful so good I am surprised there were left overs!

    Oh I can’t imagine anyone eating one of those KFC burgers either. They look disgusting! Am pretty sure one of those could feed our entire family if pulled apart and served with vegies and/or salad. I also HATE BBQ sauce. In fact I blogged about the KFC burger here: http://www.maidinaustralia.com/2011/03/wanky-wednesday.html
    Great minds think alike!

    I love the bright colors in that salad!

  5. Kankana says:

    My husband too hates barbecue sauce!! This meal looks so simple and yet so flavorful. Will try this next time.

  6. Oh yum, yum…I can never resist roast chicken. Yours look gorgeous :) .

  7. Yum!!!! Looks really delicious! My favorite chicken….my husband’s fried chicken strips. :) By the way, I had no idea anyone ate raw chicken. Learn something new every day. :)

  8. Your photography skill is amazing. I never seen simple tomato and green peas picture that is so beautiful. The whole chicken looks wonderful. I get too scared to cook the whole chicken (you can tell I never touch turkey either for Thanksgiving). I need to just try once. I have too much imagination sometimes. Haha. Your dinner looks wonderful!

    I ate KFC as a kid, but I can’t abide it now. Really, once you get past the batter, the meat has little taste. Give me a home-cooked chicken like yours any day instead. ;)

  10. Amanda says:

    Your chicken looks great. I can’t stand commercial fried chicken. The breading is always too thick. True, Southern fried chicken is supposed to have a very thin coating of flour and spices. I’m still reeling from my Momma’s pan fried chicken I got to eat the other night.

  11. grace says:

    your chicken looks amazing (and no, i would never eat raw chicken!), but i love your peas. i could eat peas simply prepared every day for the rest of my life. :)

  12. Rosa says:

    A scrumptious meal! Lipsmackingly good…

    Cheers,

    Rosa

  13. I tried the KFC bunless burger this week in desperation- nothing else available on a looong country road trip- and I have to say that your chicken would beat it hands down! If you only had a drive-through!!

  14. Juliana says:

    Wow, this is sure a nice meal…the chicken looks very tasty and great with the side veggies…perfect. Hope you have a great week ahead :-)

  15. Interesting idea to put tomatoes in the bottom. I saw a recipe where you put potato slices and these turn quite crispy, and potentially clog your artery:).

  16. Oh I just know which spice mix you’re talking about :) though not the same brand. I just never thought you could use it on roast chicken! Mmmm great tip for that one :)

  17. BK says:

    Hi, could you suggest what we can use in place of the bake mix?
    Tks

  18. Anthony says:

    Oh my lord. the four season spicy bake mix. I can’t find it anywhere where I live in (which is Calgary btw). Where did you buy this? Maybe I can stock up if I end up where you live

  19. Anthony says:

    Oh my lord. the four season spicy bake mix I have used for 1o years of my life but my local Chinese Market I used to buy it from do not carry it anymore. I can’t find it anywhere where I live in (which is Calgary btw). Where did you buy this? Maybe I can stock up if I end up where you live
