Where’s the Grill in KFC?

6 May

kfcgrillLast month, KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) introduced a new product line called Kentucky Grilled Chicken. It’s their answer to health-conscious consumers who have dropped fried chicken from their diets, or cut back on indulging. The Grilled Chicken recipe has half the sodium of their original fried chicken recipe, but 600 milligrams for a breast is not exactly what I call healthy. It’s being tested in six cities (Indianapolis, Colorado Springs, San Diego, Oklahoma City, Jacksonville, Fla., and Austin, Texas) at the moment and a national rollout is planned for early next year.

Oprah is also getting in on the action and is giving away their new Grilled Chicken Two-Piece Combo Meal for FREE. The combo includes two pieces of grilled chicken, two individual sides (mash potatoes and cole slaw) and a biscuit. Coupons for the deal can be found at unthinkfc.com or on the Cheapskat site. Some restrictions apply, see the KFC site for more details.

Update: Apparently the Kentucky Grill Chicken line has expanded beyond the six test cities mentioned above. I’m based in New York City and I had the FREE two piece combo last night. I enjoyed their grill chicken a lot more than their fried recipe, but it’s not good enough to convert me into a paying customer.
