Seriously millennials? It's come to this: KFC has announced their plans to roll out boneless chicken chunks April 14 to cater to the finicky masses who don't like dealing with bones.
According to USA Today, the chain has been working on this recipe for three years, hoping to move the chain forward in a time where fast-casual chains are gradually overtaking fast-food chains. "This is the biggest new product introduction for KFC in modern times," John Cywinski, U.S. KFC president told USA Today.
Executives apparently think this is the brand's biggest move since its founding more than 60 years ago. The Original Recipe Boneless is reportedly replacing chicken legs, thighs, and breast with white and dark meat chicken chunks twice the size of tenders, deep-fried with the secret herbs and spices sauce. Cywinski predicts that the majority of the chicken sold at KFC by 2014 will be boneless.
Isn't the meat usually processed then reformed to make "boneless" pieces. Probably chock full of garbage. I might try it sometime though I find their stuff gives me heartburn if I eat 2 entire pieces so I might just go for some boneless barbeque wings somewhere else if I really want processed chicken chunks.
