Chicken with Pineapple Mango Salsa, with Beef & Mushroom Risotto(Fancy Jollibee) by Erik of Fancy Fast Food, with assistance from Slim 
Ingredients:
1 two-piece Chickenjoy meal (with rice and gravy)
1 Amazing Aloha Burger
1 Burger Steak (with rice and mushroom gravy)
1 Pandesal with Corned Beef
1 Peach Mango Pie
1 soft drink of your choice
organic Italian parsley (for garnish and a touch of irony)
Canada’s Tim Hortons was the first non-American fast food chain import to be fancified on this food humor blog.  This time we go to the Philippines’ big fast food chain Jollibee, with several American locations in New York, Las Vegas and California.First, skin the breading off the two pieces of fried Chickenjoy, and then cut the meat off the bones into pieces as big as you can get them.  (The thigh and drumstick should yield one big piece each.) Next, take the slice of pineapple out of the Amazing Aloha Burger and chop it into small chunks.  Chop the lettuce from the burger as well.  Slice the Peach Mango Pie laterally to expose the inside, and then scoop out its filling.  Mix the three ingredients in a bowl to make the pineapple mango salsa.Pour the gravy from the Chickenjoy into a skillet, and then add the gravy and mushrooms from the Burger Steak, along with the rice.  To make things meatier, add the corned beef hash from the pandesal roll, and then mix it all up under a low heat.And now, the plating: place the two pieces of chicken next to each other on a fancy white plate, and then top it with the pineapple mango salsa.  On the side, place down some beef & mushroom risotto, and garnish with some ironic parsley.  Serve the soft drink in a wine glass, of course. And there you have it: chicken, fruit, gravy, mushrooms, rice, luncheon meat and all! It’s a Filipino taste explosion! Masarap!
