 Scotch egg, originated in London in 1738. It's my friend from London who told me about this recipe.

I made mine into Filipino version by adding calamansi juice

 chicken is one of the favorites, buying it from KFC, McDonalds or Jollibee, will be too expensive if we will order 50 pieces for  family gatherings. The cheapest way is to buy chicken meat and cook it.  Here is my family's traditional way of cooking it.
