    Grilled Chicken

    Not sure if this is the right place. Does anyone know how fast food stores like Nandos & Mochachos grill there chicken. Is it pre grilled or pre boiled or something to speed up order time?

    Lol, this is a business forum so it's probably the wrong place but I'm always game for a fast food question :-)

    Nandos oven bake their artificially growth accelerated chicken first. They then hold it pre-cooked until it's ordered, at which time it goes on the grill and is flame grilled for a minute or two whilst being doused in an oil based basting sauce. Into the bag it goes and handed over to the customer at a healthy profit. Nandos used to just grill cook their chicken a while back but they changed the technique to using an oven to pre-cook.

    KFC roll the hormone riddled bird bits in the colonels special sawdust and deep pressure fry their chicken in a 'broaster'. Under pressure it cooks quicker and absorbs more grease giving the impression of being juicier and hopefully taking your mind off the impending heart attack by decoying you with the grease rolling down your chin and onto your shirt or pants.

    Mochacos I'm not too sure about.

    Thanks AndyD

    Any other fast foods you would like to rip the arse out of while you're at it ?

    I now have to cook one night extra per week. You want to try Perfect Pizza, the Fish & Chip shop, Woolies Lasagne and their pies / sausage rolls and garlic bread next please ?

    I really do need to lose some weight.

    You should have seen the first draft of that post....what you got to read was the watered down result of several minutes of re-editing to make it family/work friendly .

    A couple of years ago there was an article of Carte Blanche where where they were investigating fast food shops regarding health issues.
    In Macdonalds Krugersdorp the chef was caught on camera urinating on a hamburger before serving it to a customer.
    Unfortunately the customer had already eaten the hamburger before they retrieved the footage.
    You are more than welcome to eat Macdonalds if you want to.

    Apparently the customer & the person serving him had an argument & because of that the chef urinated on his hamburger.
    Since that day, when ever I see a Macdonald sign it reminds me of that incident.
