Everyone knows the old joke about why the chicken crossed the road. Well here are five superb chicken dishes we are willing to cross not just the road but the whole city for, to give you the chance to enjoy them. On its own, chicken can be a tasty and succulent treat that's low in fat and high in protein, but when it's served in the special kinds of ways that Chicken Up and others dish it out, it becomes something else entirely.
Of course, it's not just Asian treatment of the humble chicken that up the flavour quotient. Singapore's American takeaways also have ways of elevating their dishes that are guaranteed to keep you coming back to enjoy them again and again. You've probably got lots of favourites of your own but do give these a try – we think you'll be impressed!
1. Spicy Yangnyum Popcorn Chicken - Chicken Up
If you're looking for a taste sensation that's fantastic in more ways than one, then may we suggest the irresistible Spicy Yangnyum Popcorn Chicken from Chicken Up? They take bite-sized pieces of prime, boneless chicken, give them a popcorn coating and serve them with their hot Yangnyum sauce to create a real Korean treat with a kick!
2. Original Set With Jambalaya Sauce - Oven Fried Chicken
Here's a real fusion of cultures and flavours for you to enjoy from Oven Fried Chicken. Choose the oven set and you'll have no less than 16 pieces of boneless thigh to share with friends. Then add jambalaya sauce to give it a taste of the southern states of America with its spicy and very delicious Cajun flavours of paprika, oregano, cayenne and thyme.
3. Korean Fried Chicken - Jinjja Chicken
At Jinjja Chicken they're dedicated to bringing you the authentic taste of Korean street food using the very best and most authentic ingredients they can. Their classic chicken is a real menu favourite thanks to the delicious marinade of soy sauce, chilli and garlic, liberally sprinkled with sesame seeds.
4. Ranch Grilled Chicken - The Ranch
American food can be a healthy choice, especially when it's grilled. This dish from The Ranch involves chicken cooked just like that and comes with a choice of two sauces: either a tangy black pepper or their own special mushroom sauce. Alongside all this are no less than three separate sides – fried potato wedges, green salad and crunchy nacho chips. We said the chicken was healthy, not the whole meal!
5. Honey Butter Fried Chicken - Chir Chir Fusion
Head on down to the Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory for a beautifully simple way to add real flavour to your chicken dinner. The chefs here treat their prime chicken pieces in a very distinctive way. The meat is coated in a honey and butter marinade that combine to make it rich, sweet and very, very more-ish. Did we mention it's one of the most popular dishes that they serve? From the first bite, you'll know why.
