I've seen the commercials, what I wonder is, they equipped all 400 some-odd locations with grills?

Or is this pre-grilled, frozen chicken warmed up in the fryer?

Ummm...it is asking me to install a “coupon printer” program from their website...no thanks. Installing software off of websites like that is just plain dangerous.

yeah, I just tried it too and my work firewall blocked it. I was going to print 4 coupons from each of my 7 computers for 28 free meals (that’s 56 pieces of chicken, 56 sides, and 28 biscuits,... for those of you at home).

I think the software is there to limit you to 4 downloads of the coupon. I read the TOS and it looks pretty benign, but use at your own risk!

I just read up on it. It's not grilled, at least by my definition. It's cooked on a grill "that goes into an oven" which is baked in my book. Sounds gross, although some reviewers say it's pretty good.

Gimme either X-tra crispy or original, screw this healthy stuff.

Since I print coupons often and have never before been asked to install “coupon printing” software, I know it can be done without it and I figure any program I’m asked to install is likely marketing related. So I’ll pass on it and the chicken.

It may not be. I went to the KFC site and there is nothing ing their coupons about this. I worked at a coffee shop, and someone put a similar coupon on the internet for a free large drink - fake. We honored it but boy was it costly.

BTW, our newspaper had this free coupon (probably the same one thats printable here) in it a few days ago and the website matches the one on that coupon, so I’m pretty sure its legit.

I downloaded and installed their coupon printer; and then it told me I had already printed the maximum number of coupons I was allowed to print (which apparently is ZERO).

I'm thinking FRAUD.

Some of you are just too paranoid. This is legit and so is the coupon printer, which is meant to protect you from scam coupons, and to protect the retailer from people who think they can download as many coupons as their printer will allow. You just can’t win with some people I suppose.

Oh, also, if you pay for a breast, make sure you get a breast. Check/google online complaints about fake breasts, and passing other parts off as breasts. (I can only imagine the responses to this comment) It’s true! We had the manager deliver REAL breasts to our house, since the takeout “breasts” were not really breasts.

Since I only eat breasts, I am not that familiar with the other parts (I hate saying this, being a female!) but I believe they are either thighs or backs...something that looks like a breast only slightly smaller.

My husband did some work for KfC (fixed a freezer) in our town, he said that place was nasty, they used their bare hands in a nasty sink to bread their chicken, and he would’nt eat there if they paid him.

There is no breading done at the retail site. The economics don't permit it.

the chicken I had on Sunday tasted like it had NOTHING added but the fake grill lines. No flavor to it whatsoever. It was so bad that my husband called corporate to file a complaint and to ask for a refund.

I just feel bad for all these people going to extra trouble to print the coupons - I would be prepared with a “back up choice” - or at least don’t skimp on the sides (nobody can complain about the mashed potatos, gravy, or cole slaw and biscuits) I’d hate for you to go hungry! Good luck.

I also feel bad because this seems like it could be a “do or die” campaign to save KFC - I’m worried about what the result will be...especially after they were attacked by PETA for trying to sponsor the largest chicken dance ever at the NASCAR race a couple of weeks ago. They are one of those long time American institutions that you’d hate to see fade away...
