“One thing we missed the most in the Philippines? Jollibee. So we brought Jollibee to us here in Australia,” Erwan wrote in the caption of the YouTube video uploaded on April 30.

Before cooking the Chicken Joy, Erwan took to Twitter to ask “anyone who has ever worked the fry station at Jolibee, is the chicken option1: fried brined, coated and “raw”, or option 2: poached, coated and then fried?”
To get tips on how to cook the Chicken Joy, Erwan went back to his first video attempt to recreate Chicken Joy. There he got tips from Netizens on how to cook the Chicken Joy and get its crispiness and delicious gravy.
The home-cooked Jollibee food made Its Showtime host and first-time mom Anne to say “In total, the meal actually really gave me Jollibee vibes. Definitely Jollibee vibes, super yummy”.
Netizen Graciela Javier reacted to the video, saying, “After this quarantine is done, I’mma head straight to jollibee and order everything that is on the menu.”
“I’m not a Filipina, and honestly I couldn’t cook to save my life🙈, but once I stumbled across your video randomly and now I watch all of your videos religiously. They made me realise that cooking isn’t that hard and boring. Not only have I been inspired to finally pursue cooking but your energy is so infectious it kind of motivates and makes me wanna be as focused and dedicated towards my ambitions as you are. Love from India♥️” Osh92 said in the caption of the YouTube video.
She is involved in various advocacies as a UNICEF Philippines Goodwill Ambassador, including the full implementation of the Juvenile Justice Welfare Act in the Philippines, and the nutrition program for Filipino children.
