An innovative meal coming from the left-over fried chicken, the birth of Jinny’s Kitchen rice meal came to life. Chibap is a dish that features chicken toppings served on a bed of rice.

The chicken can be prepared in various ways, such as grilled, fried, or stir-fried. The dish is then often accompanied by a flavorful sauce or seasoning, and it provides a delicious combination of protein and rice.
