It seemed like a good idea at the time. I had a whole chicken that was due to go off very soon and we were about to go on holiday in a few hours....why not cook it and bring it along for the ride?
Well, it turned out bringing along an entire greasy chicken, wrapped in foil, in a plastic bag wasn’t one of my brightest ideas, along with that… I’d forgotten to bring a fork.
So there I was, sitting at a packed cafe eating a whole chicken with my hands because there wasn’t anything around, getting grease all over the place. Worse still, I wasn’t even that hungry. I just didn’t want to waste the food!
Eventually I gave up, it turns out stuffing it in the freezer probably would have been the smarter call, especially since I was being eyed up by airport security as I was furiously trying to shove most of the remaining chicken into one of those bins with a really small lid (it’s almost like they don’t want people shoving bomb sized bags in there!) … :-/
It’s not quite as bad as someone I heard about who brought chicken and rice… to the cinema! But it’s not something I’ll be repeating.
Anyhoo, here’re some treats that would be a much better idea to bring along as a snack for your travels...
- Barebells Caramel Bar
- Icon Popcorn
- Battle Bites Birthday Cake
- Fulfil Hazelnut Bar
- Lenny & Larry’s Cookies
Oh, you could even have your ‘chicken’ and eat it with the Redcon1 MRE Whole Food Bars made with chicken and salmon protein, sounds kinda weird, but they actually taste great! No grease, no cooking and no fork required ;)
