Posted on 04/05/2013 5:10:52 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Trying to tear meat off a chicken skeleton is an annoyance for many Americans, especially younger ones. So KFC, in what its calling a game changer of a move, is ditching the bones.
The Kentucky-based chicken chain is rolling out its Original Recipe Boneless options on April 14 as it attempts to draw back patrons seeking more portable, convenient foods.

“Original Recipe Boneless options”
Original, ORGINAL recipe? Because thats the recipe I miss.
The laziness of Americans is a game changer...
The Colonel would be turning in his grave if he knew the drop in quality of food at KFC.
How do they grow these boneless chickens? Do they sort of ooze around the barnyard?
Younger people do not know why there would be bones in the chicken I guess. They probably do not know this comes from an animal.
Tiffany sure do have a way with words.
I love chicken but hate the bones.
Free Range chickens now float in pools I suppose
[REDACTED] and the hens were so mad they didn't lay for a week.
“Boneless chickens” ? Would this be the Republican Special ?
It's not that. With all of the wussification training that children receive now a days they just feel uncomfortable eating the corpse of an animal.
I expect some day the progressives will pass a law against eating meat.
Roosters were laying all over the place.
I’ve had too much good chicken to enjoy a meal at KFC. Good luck to them on this venture, I hope it makes someone rich.
Kfc still tastes great but I belch it up now. People think maybe their problem (possibly at just the one store?) Is old or dirty grease? Too bad, I like the stuff
See? Now THAT’S funny!
KFC has been pretty bad since the 80’s when they were taken over by pepsi
The bones is where the taste is.
“Boneless chickens” - so we’re discussing the Congressional Republicans again?
They could try to fool the food challenged young people by selling the coveted “chicken on a stick”. Advertize it constantly, make it sound really cool, and inject spot shortages to drive up demand and price. You can’t fool all the people all the time, but you can fool the ones that have more money than brains most of the time!
Be careful you don’t choke.
Dollars to donuts, the processed boneless chicken costs less to KFC. Note that at Zaxby’s their “Wings and Things” meal costs more with real wings than with processed boneless wings.
locally, a “value” bucket (8 piece, chicken only) is $12.99 which I think is expensive since the two of us can eat a whole meal for only a couple dollars more at Steak n Shake, or for many many dollars less at home.
I think KFC is nasty, my husband loves it. I’ll get it for him once in a long while.
Chicken on a stick sounds awesome.
A boneless breast stuffed with mozzarella and wrapped in bacon before deep frying.
The crap? I'm one of the "Younger ones", and I LOVE tearing the meat from the bones of *insert animal here*. It's one of those primeval instincts that you can never get rid of.
My thoughts exactly. Those poor chickens, sliding around on their feathers...can we possibly genetically engineer them without bones, feathers, beaks, eyes...
What is God thinting? Not well of us, I’m sure. His “original chicken,” with bones, feathers and beaks was just wonderful.
I’m amazed some politician hasn’t labeled chicken bones a public health hazard.
Why not really name the new boneless chicken sandwich for the person who best fits its description?
Welcome to the new KFC boneless chicken sandwich, “The Obama”. Just like him - soft, yellow and without any backbone. Comes on a Biden Bun.
You want Boehner Fries with that - soft, soggy and tasteless?
I still love KFC Original for the flavor of it. But, I don’t consider it “meal” food.
Once upon a time; bars in upstate New York used to offer ‘city chicken’ on their menus. It was always my belief that the meat source in this product used to go ‘coo, coo’ instead of ‘cluck, cluck’...
Here in Indiana, you can buy a whole small rotisserie roasted chicken at most grocery stores for 5 bucks.
Definitely shows the markup @ KFC.
Wow my Mom (RIP) used to cook those up for us back the 50s.
Banquet Chicken used to be really good too but now its wildly overpriced and over breaded.
There’s gotta be a BIG benefit to this....You know the bones are getting ground into something...along with the guts....chicken spam??...dog food? cattle food??
I buy Perdue cutlets, top it with pasta sauce and get a hamburg bun. Very tasty.
“City chicken” in Pittsburgh is pork. On a stick.
City chicken was a recipe for a way to cook veal to make it taste like chicken. It was invented during the Great Depression because that idiot FDR so screwed up the economy that veal was cheaper than chicken, and some people missed eating chicken.
We have the $5 chicken locally at Wegmans....excellent. I can get 3 meals out of it.
I’ve only been there once in the past year because they took our local one away.
Oh yeah, huge markup. Sams right next door sells a large rotisserie for 4.88, Publix sells 8 piece box of fried chicken (very good) for about $7.
To me, fast food is generally overpriced and not very good (or fast). I think it’s all to support huge ad budgets, that’s the only explanation lol.
