I recently took an opportunity to try Kentucky Fried Chicken’s new Grilled Chicken, and was absolutely amazed at how incredibly good it was. Part of the reason for giving it a try is because of the running program I have been doing since the start of December and I was tired of fixing my own meals. I needed a little break from the routine.
I occasionally like to have a meal at KFC about once every two to three months and so this time instead of having the Original Recipe Chicken as a guilty pleasure. I decided to get the Grilled Chicken meal and replace the standard sides with corn on the cob and baked beans for as reasonably healthy a meal as possible.
The meal was really, really good. I was expecting the chicken to be dry, but it was quite the opposite, it was very juicy and flavorful. It tastes nothing like the Original Recipe Chicken, as the chicken isn’t breaded. According to a press release regarding the Grilled Chicken, the chicken (in marketing speak) “is marinated and seasoned with a savory blend
of secret herbs and spices and then grilled to juicy perfection.” I’m sure probably the same herbs and spices they have in their secret recipe are used on the chicken, but they’re put right on the chicken itself. It was amazing. The corn on the cob was also delicious, I haven’t had corn on the cob in years, it tasted incredibly fresh and was so hot in the foil wrap. I’m not usually a fan of beans, but the baked beans were a great addition to the meal that tasted good too. It tasted too good to be a healthy meal.
