This is great! What in the world took them so long?

I just  returned from my first visit to a KFC store in about 10 years.  The sign in the window encourages everyone to "UNTHINK  What You Thought About KFC".   What's going on here?   Yum! Brands, Inc. parent company of KFC was concerned about declining sales at KFC over the past few years.  It seems that a significant segment of health-conscious Americans have been shying away from KFC and opting for healthier alternatives elsewhere.  Personally, I gave up deep fried foods more than 20 years ago and since KFC has not offered grilled or roasted chicken in a good many years I avoided the place completely.  I was always puzzled why KFC refused to offer a healthier choice. 

Well finally the executives at YUM have seen the light.  Last spring they introduced a product they are confident will return the chain to its former glory.  And it is a fine product indeed.  Kentucky Grilled Chicken turns out to be a tasty alternative to the deep fried stuff.  I opted for the 2 pc breast and wing combo.  I thought the seasoning was just about right.  Not quite as salty as "Original Recipe" and as you might expect not as greasy. The breast was just a tad on the dry side and that is why I am rating it a +4  as opposed to a +5.   Meanwhile, I have always loved the mashed potatoes and gravy at KFC so I took the liberty to order 2 helpings as my sides.  Just like the good old  days when nary a week went by without at least one visit to this very same KFC outlet! 

The introduction of Kentucky Grilled Chicken returns me to the fold at long last!  While I was having my lunch I sat near the counter.  Practically everyone who came in ordered Grilled Chicken.   This is a product that the public clearly wants and I believe it will be highly successful.  By the way if you are so inclined there is even a website!  Check it out at www.unthinkkfc.com.     Highly recommended!

Totally agree with you -- what in the world DID take them so long to introduce a healthier alternative? I really enjoy the grilled chicken, too!

KFC's Grilled Chicken option took so long because YUM has always been mortified that launching a "healthy" meal option would deposition their other menu items - rendering them "unhealthy' in the consumer's mind. Well, two years of double-digit sales declines has a way of refocusing their options... Great review!

Haven't had this sandwich yet, but heard it really excellent. I must pay a visit to the Colonel....or KFC as it's now referred to.

Great review...glad to hear about this. The nutritional info looks pretty good although a bit high in sodium...but a major improvement. Personally, I am waiting for the day that McDonalds begins serving oatmeal. I predict it will happen within 2 years.

I don't know what took them so long, but I'm glad they finally saw the light and brought it on! Good review.....I checked out the website too. Kentucky Fried used to be one of my favorite places.....maybe that will happen again. When I get the chance I'll check it out.
