Not surprisingly, KFC has realized that selling all fried chicken does not fit with the way that most Americans are eating these days (or at least WANT to be eating). As a result, they have released Kentucky Grilled Chicken.
I was lucky enough to live in one of the test markets for the new Kentucky Grilled Chicken and have had it several times. Except for those every-now-and-again times when I just completely crave fried chicken, I was quite satisfied with the grilled chicken. It definitely has the KFC seasoning/flavor. I’m really picky about fast food chicken. I won’t even eat the so-called grilled chicken breasts at places like Wendy’s and McDonald’s. They just taste like rubber to me. But the new KFC is different. It’s almost more like I made it at home. Or the kind that you would find in the deli at your grocery store. And then you get to choose from all of those yummy KFC side dishes.
The downside is that it isn’t cheap. Healthy rarely is. So be sure to sign up for the KFC coupons on their site. It’s definitely worth it to sign up!
