First, there was the viral 'Devil Cooked Rice' using KFC chicken, and now, Chickenjoy baked rice? Yes that's a thing, according to Jollibee Singapore.

On Tuesday (July 14), the Singapore arm of the Filipino fast food chain shared a video by TikTok user wow.waz on its Facebook page, showing us the recipe for Chickenjoy baked rice.

The 29-second video, which was shot in Brunei according to wow.waz, shows a few simple steps that we can follow.

Step one is to purchase Jollibee's two-piece Chickenjoy meal, which should come with a packet of rice and gravy.

One could argue that baked rice isn't cooked on a stovetop, but small matter, as long as it tastes good.

And instead of going with processed sliced cheese which may up the salt content unnecessarily, one could also substitute it for shredded mozarella, for a more traditional and elevated dish.
