PARMY ARMY: Put a KFC twist on the pub grub CLASSIC

When it comes to iconic pub fare, asidefrom the humble T-Bone, the Chicken Parma would have to be pretty high at the top of the list.

Well the boffins over at international chook purveyor KFC realise this fact and have acted accordingly – by unleashing a recipe that adds a bit of zing to the iconic dish.

Yep, that’s right KFC has thrown together a recipe fort what they are calling the Zinger Parmy (or Parma if you’re so inclined, but never Parmi, okay?)

KFC has stepped up its game by unveiling a new Zinger Parmy recipe – or Zinger Parma (if you’re so inclined) – the ultimate Aussie treat! (and yes, it’s a Parmy, not a Parmi, ok?)

With the chills rising, this ultimate comfort food could be just the thing to stave off Old Man Winter especially by adding the extra kick of KFC’s spicy supercharged sauce.

Best of all this recipe is super easy – all you have to do is follow the steps below.
