A Chinese woman has proved that your work lunch doesn't have to be a drab salad or a boring sandwich after roasting a whole chicken at her desk.

An incredible video reveals how a mysterious 22-year-old office worker, who goes by the name Ms Yeah, uses office supplies to cook up the elaborate meal.

The footage, filmed in Chengdu, China, shows creative planner Ms Yeah cutting up vegetables using a credit card before creating a makeshift charcoal fire out of a plant pot and some matches, reported the Daily Mail.

And to prove the video isn't an elaborate hoax, the film shows Ms Yeah devouring the entire roasted chicken after cooking it at her desk, without her colleagues even batting an eyelid.

It's not the first time Ms Yeah has cooked epic feasts at her desk using only office supplies.

She has been filming videos of herself grilling steak using an iron, cooking ramen over a bunsen burner, and even making noodle dough from scratch at her desk since February.

Her quirky, but incredible, videos, have racked up more than 200 million views on Chinese social media sites such as Weibo.

Before you start thinking of how you can recreate her elaborate meals in your office, Ms Yeah says she has an unusually tolerant boss.

"It's not a cooking tutorial, but an entertaining video with a food theme," she said.

"I love the creative and unconventional way of cooking, which sometimes poses a challenge to come up with one.

"I work in a creative company, so we all get to do some 'weird stuff' in the office. I like delicious food, for which I could almost do anything.

"I started posting those videos in February, but before that I had already made all kinds of dishes in office. In the beginning, I just shot those videos for fun and showed them to my friends.

"They thought what I was doing in those videos was cool and fun so they suggested to post them online. That was how it happened. I find the whole thing quite fun too and I quite enjoy it myself."

Ms Yeah uploads all her videos to YouTube and makes many other tasty treats in the office including beef slices with an iron, cotton candy with an electric drill and a birthday cake using a light bulb and a drawer.

The channel is extremely popular and Ms Yeah boasts nearly 200,000 subscribers.

But though her boss allows her to cook the strange meals at her desk, she admitted she's already had a warning from the fire department about building open fires in the workplace.

"My videos were first uploaded to Chinese social networks, such as Weibo," she explained.

"I was soon stunned when I was told my videos had 200 million views on the internet. One day I was walking on the street and was recognised by one fan.

"She asked to have a picture with me. At that time, I was kind of famous. But none of those things changes anything. I will continue doing some fun stuff and hopefully they can bring delight and laughs to more people.

"I should thank my boss for his tolerance in letting me do all this stuff.

"I have faced some problems. Sometimes my cooking failed and I had to do it again, while I did not have that much time to do it, as I still had loads of other work to do.

"Another problem is I cannot use fire in the office anymore after the first time - or I might get another warning from the fire department."
