I haven't had KFC in years. The one in my hometown is run by a high-school friend, but I never think of eating KFC. It used to be a place I'd stop when on road trips, but now I usually pack a cooler. I know what goes on in commercial kitchens and am not sure I want to eat food that comes out of a large kitchen and is shipped across the country, just sayin'.

I've heard some chain food places are serving donkey, monkey and horse meat. Perhaps KFC has also decided to serve road kill

They should leave the bones in. Kids can eat nuggets and popcorn chicken!

Nope! Ours is also made with potato flakes. My mom hated mashing potatoes so that's what we got at home. Maybe that's why I like it? Reminds me of mom. I like the gravy more than the actual mash, I always ask for a bowl with lots of gravy!

i hoped this was about letting us know they decided to reduce the salt. It's so salty I can't eat it.

After rereading the article, perhaps they are still going to stick with traditional fried chicken. The title of the article, "going boneless" and this "a big bucket filled with fried chicken legs, thighs and breasts on the bone -- may ultimately be banished to the dust-heap of fast-food lore. Replacing it: boneless white and dark meat chicken chunks about twice the size of tenders --", led me to believe they were phasing out bone-in chicken.
Maybe they are simply making a big push for it and seeing how things go. I rarely go there either (not for health reasons though), but that would be as drastic a change as MacDonalds giving up their quarter pounder or big mac. Whether you eat their or not, some traditions define a business. Especially a fried chicken business.

Just checked our take out menu. We've already got the boneless chicken option but they do both.

I will miss the Wicked Wings

I do like the idea of eating their chicken off the bone...but in saying that I also like their boneless chicken fillets such a the ones in their burgers...so I guess as long as it is the same taste, I can live with it

Will be different though!

I wonder if the Australian chains of KFC will follow?

Well, I don't know about THAT. ;)

But no, I've never had KFC. And the last time I had McDonald's or Burger King was 8 years ago.
