A three piece dinner is OK but a two piece sandwich is "so so wrong"? I don't get it. You eat less chicken with the sandwich than with the meal.

Think of it as a two piece dinner with bacon and cheese as sides. You can add cole slaw if you want.

Andy, remember that when a person goes to a FF rest. nutrition and value are the least concern. A $1 cheese burger usually TASTES like a $1 cheese burger.

I realize that, BigAl. I was just addressing Dave's concern.

Buckytom, I don't eat KFC very often (not one in my town), but when I did live in larger communities that had several outlets, I also found that the neighborhood where you bought the KFC mattered, as well as the time of day. Ironically (or not so), the poorer neighborhoods had the better KFC. I'm not sure what that means. But in Hawaii, Virginia, and Florida, in the times where we lived in those locations, we lived "in between" and could go pick up carry-out at a neighborhood more poor than ours, or one much more upscale, and the former had much better quality; better crust, etc.

I, like some mentioned, am not that big a sandwich eater. Yes, I get the point of eating two pieces on bun isn't any worse than eating two pieces with potatoes or biscuits or corn, but it just seems like too much to stuff between bread. Part of it is just me .... I'd buy the two pieces and skip the other starch, the batter/breading on the chicken is enough for me. Another thing is I have a problem some don't. Mom and husband say I take after Dad ... sandwiches fall apart before I've gotten three bites in. So, since I only get fried chicken a few times a year, and KFC only every year or three, I'll stick to the chicken pieces!

Andy, It is just the idea of making an "eat-as-you-go sandwich" with the breaded/fried chicken replacing the bun. For some reason it just doesn't seem right to me.... I can't really explain it any other way..

It just looks nasty. Inspires me to make a better bun-less 2 thin-fried chicken breast filet cutlet sandwich with more fixins tween.

Another factor is whether you've ever been poisoned by KFC. You will. It's statistical. Hopefully a mild infection. I think I'll try order one before my luck kicks my gut again....
