KFC Original Recipe Boneless Chicken: A Brief Review
KFC is putting original recipe herbs and spices on boneless chicken. We ate it.
[bold]What Is It?[/bold]
See name. Or, a big chicken tender.
Bigger than strips! Also browner.
These actually do taste like original recipe, though they're a little drier than regular chicken pieces or other strips. PROBABLY BETTER THAN POPEYE'S STRIPS PLEASE DON'T HURT ME.
[bold]The Best Part[/bold]
Tasty! It's a big chicken tender that tastes how KFC is supposed to taste.
Dry. Chicken bones aren't just meat handles, they also help keep moisture and flavor in the meat around them.
[bold]Should You Buy This?[/bold]

I tried it. I've been getting their little Snacker sandwiches for lunch, and they gave me a free piece to sample. It's pretty good, much better than the last few pieces of real KFC I've had.
OP's review says it's dry, but I would say it's not greasy which has been my problem with KFC for years.
It also didn't make me think I was eating a chicken strip, it actually felt like a real piece of chicken, and it had the peppery spice the old original had.
I'll stick to my little Snacker sandwich, but if I were buying KFC I would pick the boneless over real chicken pieces.

I can't imagine these threads touting the latest offerings from fast food joints having much interest to DLers.
4/5ths of fast food is vile and should only be eaten if nothing else is available, and rarely at that.

A majority of respondents either are or will probably try it. Kinda makes all those shrieking posts about how gays never eat fast food kinda look a lot like delusional lies, doesn't it? :-)

R1 when did they bring the Snackers back? I remember they sold them at my local KFC back in 2008, and after a year they stopped selling them, and I haven't been back since. Are they still a dollar?
|by Anonymous||reply 9||04/15/2013|
They've been back for a year or so now... and KFC Snackers are anywhere from 1.29 to 1.49 depending on the area, I think.
And they call them something different now, and they don't have lettuce, just a pickle. I think they rebranded them "Chicken Littles" now, not to be confused with the original "Chicken Littles" from the 80s.

At some point in the early 90's, KFC came out with their rotisserie chicken. Damn, that was some good stuff. Even the white meat was moist. Whatever happened to it?
And to all the DL food snobs: go sit on a cucumber. It'll do you good.

I responded "possibly," but I will probably NOT try it, as I never go to KFC, and would be in an unusual frame of mind to stop there.

What r23 said. Watching, "Food, Inc." really pissed me off. Seeing just a few seconds of film of what these corporate run farms do to animals is horrific.
I read posts and see pics posted on Facebook about abused dogs and people are all up in arms about it. Yet most (myself included until recently) turn a blind eye to farm animal abuse.
I don't know how anyone could work at corporate run farms.

Why would anyone go to KFC when making your own fried chicken at home is so easy and cheap? And you can control your own ingredients so you know it won't have artificial flavors, will be all organic, gluten-free and baked, not fried.

I spent $58.00 on a 20 piece boneless meal last night at the KFC at Grant and Silverbell in Tucson, AZ last night and neither of us could eat even one whole piece. It was so incredible nasty that I thought they had had a seasoning accident and tried to eat a bite off of several different pieces and nope it is just totally gross. It was so bad that I called the store to complain and find out if someone had tried to poison us by putting something in the food and I got an instant canned response delivered in one breath attesting to how safe it is cooked and how their quality control process is, so I guess everyone is calling them and complaining about how nasty it is. We gave all of the chicken to our 3 dogs and 2 cats and it is still in the bowl today. They scooted it around and dragged a couple of pieces out, but after tasting it, they have soundly rejected it as well. For nearly $60.00 we sure could have had a much, much better dining experience. KFC is permanently off my dining list. These things are like chunks of chicken glued together by a gray slurm paste and some of the chicken was still pink inside, even thought it was glued together by the gray stuff- there is no way it was done. I don't even know what they used to season it- it tastes nothing at all like any fried chicken I have had from anywhere- really weird and super super salty and I usually add salt to the point that you can see it on fried chicken, but this is way, way too much. Their mashed potatoes tasted like they just stirred some water in the potato mix and slapped it into the container without cooking it- it had a really nasty grainy consistency that had nothing to do with potatoes. I used to love the gravy, but even that wasn't very good. Their macaroni and cheese was good-out of the whole order that was the only thing worth eating. So not worth sixty dollars!

You can avoid these threads so easily. Instead you OBSESSIVELY monitor them and bump them over and over, OBSESSIVELY troll-dar (and still get identities wrong), and OBSESSIVELY post your profanity-laden posts that add no value at all to anything.

Where do you live?
I don't think there are diners that can make fresh grilled chicken, fresh mashed potatoes and veggies for just $7.
I have been to very basic diners where just the mashed potatoes cost $4.00. Each side vegetable is $4.00. A basic chicken dish is $12 or $15. With tax and tip, you can easily pay $25 to $30 for a meal.
There is a reason people go to KFC. It is cheap.
|by Anonymous||reply 128||06/29/2013|
R128, I definitely can relate to "cheap." Yes in Vegas I can get a huge portion of prime rib, more than enough for 2 dinners, freshly made mashed potatoes, and fresh broccoli for $6.99 24/7 (Palms Casino coffee shop.) They also have similar daily specials.
|by Anonymous||reply 129||06/29/2013|
Well maybe in a Vegas casino you can get cheap food. That is an exception more than the rule. A casino loses money on meals because they want to lure in the gamblers.
Here in NJ, the casino meal you described would not be available to me even at a run down shack of a diner.
