Dear Popeye's,

Please don't do this. Fried chicken should have bones and skin. Please ignore the spoiled delicate flowers who haven't matured past chicken nuggets.

What they say: Customers want this.
What they mean: This will be more profitable to us.

Because:
1) We can make this crap in a factory and ship it out frozen to stores, who will only need to microwave it, thereby drastically reducing the manpower requirements.
2) We can use ground up, processed and re-processed chicken "parts," where we previously just threw those bits away.
3) The leftover bits, such as bones and innards can now be sold to other firms who process them for things like gelatin, pet food, and fertilizer.
4) We think our customers are stupid and won't realize they're being screwed.  Hell, we'll even charge them more despite the fact that the new business model will cost a mere fraction of what we were paying for product and labor.

April 5, 2018 - Today KFC announced the new "Chicken Squeezer" that allows customer to dispense liqufied salted chicken-flavored paste from a cake frosting tube into their own (or a friend's) gaping maw.
"Let's face it, we've been heading this way for a while now," the KFC CEO mused.

You are, frankly, an idiot.

1) There is absolutely no way to crispy fry battered chicken in a microwave without it getting soggy.
2) If you can't tell the difference between muscle tissue & mechanically separated meat, then you are nobody to be judging food to begin with.
2b) So farking what if they can provide more of what would have been wasted food? Scrapple & head cheese, which is just another way of scavenging otherwise scrap meat, are now enshrined in culinary acceptance, what the fark is the difference with MSM?  Shut your stupid face.
3) So farking what if they resell the leftovers?  It's called thinking ecologically, or should bones, heads and whatnot get thrown into a landfill instead of being repurposed and reclaimed?  Wish you pantywaist PETA-farkers would make up your got dang minds.

There are few more succinct ways to sum up change in America in my lifetime than the evolution of the old 1963 Kentucky Fried Chicken shack, purveyor of glorious, greasy, real fried chicken (and real potatoes, cole slaw, biscuits) into the plasticized, televised, branded, drivethrough, entirely synthetic shiatvendor that is the modern KFC. I'm not surprised that they want to change to prefabricated chicken byproduct patties.

Daemonik: Freudian_slipknot: R5D4: What an exaggerated way to say: "home made"

At least in my home, we don't set the turkey under a shiatty heat lamp for a couple of days before we get around to dealing with deboning it.

So it's about as homemade as the ones in your freezer section.  If the ones in your freezer section had underpaid apathetic teenagers sticking their fingers in it over and over before you bought it.

Enjoy your "homemade" pot pies.  I'll be over here not getting food poisoning.

Why don't you just make some shiat up why don't you?  I swear this thread is packed with narcissistic food fascists and PETA humpers.


Every food thread on Fark has them, especially when it concerns restaurants. It's cute and sad listening to them preach like they intimately know everything about how all fast food works and assume everything is done while knee-deep in rat turds with bats on the ceiling shiatting on everything, and how they proclaim decades-old urban legends as the gospel truth as part of their reasons for hating fast food. Their woeful and likely intentional ignorance of reality makes one weep.

earthworm2.0: Rapmaster2000: Egoy3k:

1)Microwaves are very rarely used in fast food. For example there are only two items on the McDondals menu that are microwaved, the bun for the fillet of fish sandwich, and the breakfast burritos.

When I worked there 20 years ago everything was microwaved.  It goes like this.  You cook the meat and put it into a cabinet.  When the counter calls for 12 burgers, you assemble them (they stopped toasting buns around 1992) and put them into a "Q-ing Oven" aka microwave and then send them across the top of the grill.  From there they go into the bin where they sit some more.  Everything went into the Q-Ing oven except The Big Breakfast, the nuggets, and the fries.

Things have changed since you were there.


I worked there 35 years ago, and we actually GRILLED the meat.  On a grill.  Twelve patties at a shot, timed front and back and seared to perfection and served hot off the grill.  We also deep-fried the pies.  OMG, those were soooooo good [jamesfranco.jpg].  And the fries were made with pure white snow-cap lard.  The "food" you get at McDonalds today is a poor shadow of the awesomeness of golden-era fast food.  I'm sorry you have to eat that crap now.  KFC was one of the last hold-outs.

TV's Vinnie: You're paying at least twice the average cost of supermarket fried chicken, but half of the total volume is inedible bones.

As much as I like tenders over boned chikkin, I just hope that KFC doesn't do their's a la McNuggets. Chicken meat shouldn't be sponge-like in consistency.


Removing the bones from chicken changes the flavor and the texture. I don't think chicken tenders taste nearly as good as real fried chicken cooked correctly. That's why tenders usually come with sauce and fried chicken doesn't.

Sid_6.7: Bathia_Mapes: Without bones or skin? Are you kidding me? The skin on the Original Recipe chicken is delicious.

Here's the deal:

The demand for dark meat (mostly wings and drums) has surpassed the demand for white meat for some time, at least a year or so I believe. This is largely thanks to places like Buffalo Wild Wings, and many, many imitators trying to get in on the trend, such as Little Caesar's. In response many restaurants (including chains, esp. chains) have started offering white meat marketed in new ways (e.g. "boneless wings"). This is just a logical step in that direction.

It probably takes KFC about six months to a year (this is a WAG) to bring a new product to market with how big their supply chain is, much less any restaurant refitting and/or staff training needed, so it makes sense that only now are they getting this on the menu.

But seriously, skin or no, I might buy chicken strips if they taste like original recipe.

/craves it fortnightly
//on Fridays I used to get KFC for lunch as a "treat", but since I discovered that Five Guys has online ordering, which dispenses with the 10-15 min. wait, I've started getting lunch there instead


I worked at a KFC here in canada til september. We already had strips that were just white meat done up in the original recipe flour mixture and they ARE delish. Way better than the crispy strips they used to use. In other news, kfc canada has had wraps for years.
