To be honest, I don’t really cook and am not a good cook, either. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I was forced to stay at home. I got no choice but of course to follow our government’s restrictions for our own safety purpose. With that, I couldn’t travel and had to find other ways to kill time most especially when at home. That’s what made me decide to learn how to cook! I wouldn’t deny that at least I learned something from this pandemic, which is cooking. So I somehow tried to cook and follow some quick, easy chicken recipes on the Internet. As a beginner, I can say that this is an achievement for me! I am now able to cook some simple meals for myself. With that being said, I would love to share with you some of the chicken meals I made all throughout the months I stayed at home.
