Hungover and can't choose between getting KFC or a hearty pub meal? Choose no longer. 

Fast-food giant KFC has revealed you can easily whip up a classic chicken parmigiana using its famous chicken, along with just five other ingredients. 

The parmy has classic Zinger fillets as its base, which are covered with passata, bacon, cheese, herbs and hot sauce. It's said to be a guaranteed crowd-pleaser that can be whipped up in minutes - unless your friends are vegetarian, of course. 

A video of the recipe was posted on KFC Australia's Instagram page where its already racked up over 15,000 views. A full step-by-step guide was also shared with 7 News.

It's not the first time the chicken chain has released some DIY recipes to help jazz up a home feast. Last month a recipe for popcorn chicken nachos went viral and the chain often posts customised versions of classics on its social media pages.

(Serves 4)


  • 4 x KFC Zinger fillets 
  • 4 tbsp passata
  • 4 pieces bacon
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
