Kentucky Grilled Chicken Sucks ASS. The grill marks on the chicken is fake, it tastes like crap, they throw it out at the KFC stores, and overall chicken sales at KFC are down 6%. The franchisees are pissed at YUM Brands (the parent company) for downplaying "fried" chicken for the "healthier" stuff, which nobody wants to buy. So the franchisees are suing the parent company.

People want fried chicken. Its bad for you, sure. But it tastes so much better. After all, the "F" in "KFC" stands for "FRIED."

I don't think the grilled chicken tastes worse than fried chicken. I was pretty excited when they came out w/ a new healthier alternative. But I'm probably the only one again.

It won't matter.... once the Skinwich catches on across the country....

Mmmmmmm.... Skinwich....

KFC is testing a new sandwich: The Skinwich.
5 layers of fried chicken skin, lumped on a bun and topped with white american cheese and bacon.
It’s only available at a handful of KFCs (for now). One happened to be right near our office (http://www.prospectmagazine.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/17_goldmansachs_lgl.jpg), so I walked over.

http://img834.imageshack.us/img834/2011/skinwichbreakdown395215.jpg


Verdict

Nasty. The richness of all that fatty seasoned skin is totally overwhelming. It’s also tongue-parchingly-salty.
I started to gag and got that “brushing the back of your tongue” feeling. Had to spit it out. In KFC’s defense, the sandwich was luke-warm after taking the pics. But I doubt it would be much better hot.
With this latest move and the Double Down (http://www.kfc.com/doubledown/)‘s success, KFC may be catching up to Hardees/BK in the “making sandwiches so nauseating they generate buzz” dept.
Other Skinwich test stores:



Ekaf, Maine – Colbert Blvd.
Tihsllub, Oklahoma – Corner of 3rd & Twain.
Eritas, California – Dense St.

Just saying...
If chicken sales are down 6%, doesn't that imply that fried chicken sales are down a lot too? I don't know that the problem is KFC moving focus away from fried chicken. I imagine it has a lot more to do with more chicken tender chains like Zagsby's and popular chicken chains like Chick-Fil-A. When those chains grow, KFC's share shrinks.

we made the stuff 50 lbs of cabbage at a time it had cabbage and a few real green outside leaves for color carrots, sugar vinegar, miracle whip and a very very small amount of onion.... only like 2 or 3 for a full 50 lb batch

this has been over 30 years ago so my memory is not as good

the way they make the extra crispy chicken is

they got the chicken wet in a milk and egg dip, floured it up then put it back in the milk and egg dip and flour it up again.

the secret recipe came pre packaged and you just dumped it into 50 lbs of flour..
we were told back then, one company owned half the recipe and another company owned the other half... how this recipe has been kept a secret all these years with the internet and all is beyond me...

Col Sanders worked out of the back of his car and sold the recipe for a commission of 5 cts per chicken

No kidding Bane. I love a good batch of slaw, but it's rare to find it out there. A guy has to knock it out himself, to have a shot at a decent batch.

That kind of sounds like "German" slaw ... with the purple stuff, I mean ... is it more vinegary?

Personally, I prefer "Southern" slaw ... creamy dressing ... mayo-based. The kind that shows up at the Methodist's covered dish dinners along with that pink jello stuff with the pineapple chunks.

Chick-fil-A sandwich, waffle fries and Dr. Pepper = great hangover food. And the people at the restaurant are super polite and happy, which I find to be an enjoyable contrast to my alcohol induced suffering.
