When nearly four in five servings of fried chicken in the U.S. are served “off the bone” — strips, bites and filets — what’s the most famous fried chicken restaurant in the world to do? For KFC, the answer was simple: Get rid of the bones.
KFC is introducing Original Recipe Boneless on April 14 — boneless, skinless pieces of both white and dark meat chicken, hand breaded using the original recipe made famous by Colonel Harland Sanders.
“Our customers have seen the beginning of a menu revolution at KFC over the past several months, as we’ve introduced new, contemporary products such as Original Recipe Bites, Chicken Littles, Li’l BucketKids Meals and Dip’ems,” said John Cywinski, president of KFC U.S. “Now we’re proud to introduce the flagship product on the KFC menu, Original Recipe Boneless. This is more than just a promotional product; it’s a new way of doing business at KFC. ”
Consumers increasingly are seeking out boneless, skinless chicken.
Beginning April 14, customers can purchase a two-piece Boneless Combo for $4.99, including a piece of dark meat, a piece of white meat, an individual side item, a biscuit, and a medium drink. For family dinners, KFC is offering a 10-piece mixed bucket, that includes four pieces of boneless (two white and two dark) and six pieces of chicken on the bone for $14.99 at participating locations.
