Chicken Stare Off – Win Free KFC Daily

While my blog is primarily of food recipes, I just could not resist to post something else food related.

Its not a food recipe or food story or food shopping but its a freebie of how you can get your hands on some free KFC. The only catch is you should be good at the starring game which I am sure everyone has played in their life time either as kids or adults with their children.

The only requirments are you need to have a webcam on your PC or laptop.

I tried the game yesterday and manged to get a coupon for a free fillet burger worth £1.34. You cannot receive high price items but does include some good treats.

The promotion runs from 10 February 2014 to midnight of 27 April 2014.

You can win the following products – Hot Wings, Mini-Fillet Burger, Streetwise Wrap, Streetwise Snack Box and Streetwise All Stars.

You can play everyday until the promotion ends or ceases to run and once you qualified for a voucher whether its the hot wings, mini fillet burger you will have 5 tries to try and perform better to get a bigger price.

Once you download the voucher you could print it off or show it on your phone in particpating stores.

Hope you guys enjoy the promotion and wins some free KFC. I know I am going to try for a bigger price 🙂

I would love to hear from anyone who wins the Streewise All Stars.


I tried the game on 11 February and 12 February 2014 and won a couple of vouchers for a mini fillet burger and Streetwise All Stars which me and my OH was able to redeem today 13 February 2014 at our local KFC store without issue.

I tried to play the game again today 13 February 2014 and was greeted with this message from KFC



Congratulations to all the blinking marvellous champion starers.

Recently we challenged you to put your peepers to the test and take on our Streetwise
snacks, in the ultimate online staring competition. Within hours, hundreds of thousands
of you eyed up the masters of staring and beat them fair and square.

Due to sheer demand, Chicken Stare-Off has taken a break to rest its eyes.
So for now, enjoy your victory chicken (while stocks last).
And keep your eyes open for more fun and games soon.

So it seems that the game has temporarily been taken off. I will update this post if the game is back up for some free KFC.


Grilled Sardines with Spicy Potatoes

Grilled Sardines with Spicy Potatoes

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a while since my last post and have been ignoring my blog!!! 😦

A few days before the New Year and like every other person on the face of the earth I decided on some New Year resolutions. Losing weight, getting more exercise blah blah but one resolution was to post more on to my blog.

My first recipe for 2014 is the Grilled Sardines with Spicy Potatoes. The recipe is very simple and does not require much ingredients and effort and perfect for the mid-week.

I have been looking to incorporate some fish into my daily meals mainly oily meals due to the benefit of the fish on type 2 diabetes and reducing heart disease. Sardines are very cheap and you can get them at almost at any supermarket, although just before the New Year and after Christmas I found it hard to find in my normal supermarket but is abundant right now.


Fish Marinade

  • In a bowl mix the turmeric powder, chilli powder and garam masala and salt with a dash of water to a smooth paste.
  • Pour the marinade over the sardines and let it marinade between 30mins to 3 hours depending how much time you have. I marinated for about 45 minutes.
  • Pre heat the grill to high and place them on a baking tray and grill them for 20 minutes. 10minutes on each side.

Spicy Potatoes

  • Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds when the oil is hot. The cumin seeds will sizzle once added, add the potatoes to the pan and keep stirring.
  • Once the potatoes are part cooked, check by sticking a fork then add the onion. After a few minutes add the spices and let it cook for a few minutes.
  • Add about 200ml of water and let it cook for 5-8 minutes on a low heat.
  • Then add a dash of soy sauce and sugar, mix all together and turn the heat off in 2 minutes.


I would love to hear of ways you cook the fish and if anyone has ideas how to strip the bones especially the minute ones within the flesh?

N.B. The fish has a lot of bones so be careful when eating. That’s the only thing I did not like about the fish but it was very tasty 🙂Image
