The baked chicken was supposed to be crispy but it wasn’t, though it was still delicious. I marinated the chicken overnight in brine and then coated with batter made from rice flour and taco seasoning. I was expecting rice flour to produce an ultra crispy crust. Lesson learnt, perhaps it would have produced better results if combined with plain flour. And the crust was not supposed to look like a dried riverbed.
I last had KFC or fried chicken about 3 years ago. There is no KFC in Sweden and the only restaurant I saw that sold fried chicken is located in Malmö, a city about 5 hours train ride from Stockholm. I didn't try the chicken there. Burgers and most other ‘American’ food is easily available but not fried chicken. I haven’t been able to solve the mystery on why this is the case.

There has been discussion on water shortage, however recent report says that major river systems in the developing world have enough water to meet food-production needs this century. Ten river basins in Asia, Latin America and Africa were studied.
There is certainly enough water, the issue is one of inefficient use and unfair distribution rather than scarcity. In Africa only 4 percent of available water is captured for food and livestock. Huge amounts of rainwater are lost or unused, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. In large parts of Asia and Latin America researchers found production to be at least 10 percent below potential.
Well at least there some good news. China was not specifically mentioned, perhaps it comes under Asia. I learnt sometime ago that China will face a significant water crisis in future. Lets hope this new positive research allays all concerns.
