History of Grilled Chicken Burger
The story of this burger began during the American pre-colonial era. The people in South America enjoy eating meat more than anyone. Because of this, they started to invent a method of cooking meat called grill.
The act of grilling is actually cooking meat on dry heat either above, below or at the side. This cooking method utilises less oil and ensures the meat stays juicy while preserving the nutrients. People started to grill vegetables, fruits and every type of meat including chicken and fish. Grilling the chicken enhanced the juiciness, tenderness and essence of the meat.
In 2010, grilled chicken burger was introduced in one of the largest fast food chains in Malaysia. When the hamburger was launched, the locals went crazy over this juicy grilled chicken burger. This burger became an overnight sensation.
At that time, the burger was only available for a limited time and the locals patiently wait for its comeback every year. Without fail, the burger continues to be a hit each time it is back on the menu. Good news though, for the grilled chicken burger is now a permanent addition to the menu and is available all year round!
