Can a classic parma get any better? Put aside the argument of parma versus parmy, because regardless of the way you say it, it all equals deliciousness, especially because KFC has unloaded it’s latest recipe, the Zinger Parmy.

Isolation life has left us cooking up a boatload of nonsense that we wouldn’t have ever thought of before. Forget perfectly manicuring your menu to make even the biggest health nut jealous, and toss that steamed fish and quinoa bake right out the window, because quarantine life is about indulging on all the world has to offer.

Luckily, KFC has been giving us goods after goods, as they’ve been dishing out recipes for all sorts of comfort foods that you can make with ease just by adding a few additional ingredients to their signature fried chicken.

We’ve already seen hot honey wicked wings grace our home menu, and the absolutely stacked chicken nachos was exactly what our shrivelled up soul needed. Now, they’ve spoken right to our Australian hearts, blessing us with a KFC Zinger Parmy recipe.

Warning – once you discover the Zinger Parmy, a regular parmy will never be the same again. Cook with caution.
