KFC® Introduces New Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets

Made With 100% White Meat Chicken and Hand-breaded in KFC’s Original Recipe® - You’ve Never Had Nuggets Like These Before

March 24, 2023 // Franchising.com // LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Let the nugget wars begin! Kentucky Fried Chicken® is introducing new, 100 percent white meat Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets - hand-breaded with KFC’s Original Recipe® - to menus nationwide starting March 27.

After a wildly successful test run in 2022 and years without a nugget made with the signature taste of KFC on menus, new Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets are making their way to KFC’s permanent menu at participating locations - and these chicken nuggets pack a powerful pop of flavor that can be enjoyed nationwide seven days a week.

Made with 100 percent white meat and hand-breaded with KFC’s unique Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices that made the fried chicken chain famous, the Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets can be enjoyed as a full meal, a snack on-the-go, complement to the bucket meal or even as an appetizer on the way home!

Colonel Harland Sanders spent years perfecting his secret seasoning blend that creates the unmistakable, world-famous taste of KFC’s Original Recipe fried chicken. And starting March 27, it’s making its way to nuggets like you’ve never had before. With the new KFC Nuggets, KFC is inviting those who love chicken nuggets to fall in love with KFC’s famous Original Recipe.

People have been living in a nugget blandemic and settling for the same mediocre nuggets for far too long. The fried chicken experts are empowering America to break up with bland and end it with cookie-cutter shapes and open their hearts and mouths to Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets.

“As the original fried chicken experts, we’re introducing a chicken nugget made the way only KFC can - hand-breaded with our distinctive Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices,” Nick Chavez, CMO, KFC U.S. “Simply put, you’ve never had chicken nuggets like these - they’re the chicken nugget America deserves, and worth the wait. Now that’s Finger Lickin’ Good!”

Starting at $3.49, KFC Nuggets are available as a 5-, 8-, 12- or 36-piece at participating restaurants nationwide. Combo options are also available, featuring Secret Recipe Fries, a biscuit and a medium drink.*

Each juicy nugget is bursting with so much flavor it doesn’t require dipping, though that doesn’t mean you can’t! The new nuggets can be paired with any of your favorite KFC sauces, including KFC Sauce, Honey BBQ, Classic Ranch, Honey Mustard or Buffalo Ranch.
