KFC says new boneless chicken is a 'game changer'
Chicago Tribune ^ | April 5, 2013 | Tiffany Hsu

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 it’s 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.

I haven't been to a KFC in years. The bucket seemed once iconic.

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.

I've actually seen how those boneless chickens are raised,it's terrible,they just lay there,can't even walk or peck.

It's sad.

Boneless chicken. So many things that could be said. So many ways to get banned from FR.

[REDACTED] and the hens were so mad they didn't lay for a week.

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.

This is one of those threads you just gotta see. I didn't say anything about [Paragraphs REDACTED] because I didn't want to get banned, but maybe you will, and I like encouraging people to jump. ;)

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

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!

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
