I still like a good KFC original 2 piece.  You all can kiss my arse.

This is funny to read since I'm sitting at my desk right now eating my 2-piece meal; leg and thigh, yum. I got a free cookie today with my order. Must be some special. I love to watch the internet do KFC bashing. I still eat there almost weekly - I love the original recipe breading.
Now, please continue with your horror stories.

Why do people actually eat there?
Lazy? Stupid? Lack of self respect? Lethargy? *shrug*

Hah, at least they are giving back a little...
"it was discovered that the company that supplies meat to KFCs and McDonald's in China, OSI Group, was using chicken that had been expired for nearly two weeks in its chicken nuggets."

I'm surprised they even mention the kidney. It's really normal to find kidneys in chicken thighs. You don't complain when you find bones or tendons in pieces of chicken. The picture doesn't look like a kidney, though, but it might just be the angle/scale/lighting which makes it look weird.

"The chain famously claims to employ a "dedicated, trained cook" in each of its kitchens..."

CSB:
Recently went to a KFC near my house (get a taste for crispy strips every 8 months or so), and the Dude-Bros manning the place were anything but "dedicated, trained cooks".  They seemed like they didn't care about doing anything, least of all taking or filling orders.  There was one other person at the counter when I walked in, and two cars at the drive-through.  After about 5 minutes of standing at the counter, during which nobody came by to take my order, a woman stormed in and yelled at the guy behind the counter "If I have to wait 30 minutes at the drive-through you can at least give me farking straws!"  After one of the dude-bros gave her an handful of straws (didn't ask how many she needed, just grabbed about 10 of them) I left.

Noticed not too long after that the place had a "Under new ownership", and "Help Wanted"  banner hanging up.

I don't get the hate for KFC.  Consumer Reports ranked them at the bottom of the chicken places, below even Church's.

I'm not a regular by any stretch, mainly because I care about what I put in my body and customer service at the local outlet is always awful, but every once in a blue moon I get a big pile of original recipe and a few sides and chow the fark down.  It's delicious.

1. 2014: Hand Towel

CSB: When I was 16, I worked at McDonalds flipping burgers (back when they actually made food).  One time just to be silly, I threw a wet towel on the grill, waited until it was nice and hot, and then molded it into the shape of a burger.  The guy next to me thought it was hilarious (he was easily amused) and wrapped it in an orange cheeseburger paper.  The result looked, weighed, and felt exactly like a cheeseburger.  We put it on top of the counter to show someone later, but then turned around and it was gone!  Someone had mistaken it for a real cheeseburger, grabbed it off the counter, and handed it out the window to a drive-thru customer.

The customer came back about twenty minutes in a "clearly not amused" state of mind.  The shift manager assured the man that the guilty parties would be found and fired immediately, but laughed his ass off when the guy left (with a complete re-do of his order and enough coupons for free stuff to eat for a month).

If I want fried chicken I go to Popeyes.

And if I want rotisserie chicken I go to Pollo Marios in Orlando.  Because they cook the chicken and let the grease fall on salted boiled potatoes on the bottom of the rotisserie and bake into them.  Plus, the hot Colombian waitresses in tight pants.

In Colombia I like to walk by Don King Pollo and chuckle.

I have never gone to KFC.

Not because I have anything against it. It's just that I have never thought, "Hey. I want some KFC." It's so off the wall that it seems like it can't even be a real option.

Is that weird?

I have to agree with you here.  I recently got the craves and got a 2-piece meal which came w/2 individual sides and the bill (to go) was close to $8.00.  I can get a whole cooked chicken for the same price at the local grocery.
 
2014-08-05 12:53:04 PM  
I worked at a KFC during my teen years, and prepared and cooked the chicken.

I wasn't a "dedicated, trained cook", I was an employee, I did freaking everything, from washing the floors, cooking the food, serving it, at the cash, cleaning the dining room, etc.

That said, there is absolutely NO freaking way that I wouldn't have missed a piece not being one of the standard chicken parts.. I took the raw chicken out of the cooler, rinsed it, cleaned it, checked it, then got it coated, worked it by hand (you had to pop the bones on the thighs, pull the skin on all pieces to cover them properly), and placed in a rack to ensure all was right before I put everything in the pressure fryer.  Hit the timer and have the machine cook it, then placed the cooked pieced into the stand-by oven where it would continue to cook and drip off the exceed oil.

Then used the drippings of the fryer to do the gravy.

So unless things have seriously changed (I haven't been in a Kfarkitchen since), and the pieces now come in pre-prepared in bags, anything "weird" is done on purpose.

I know in South America it is popular, because fried chicken their tends to suck and most restuarants tend to be inconsistent.

Pollo Frito is fried chicken with no batter, and pollo apanado is with batter, but tends to have no flavor and less crunch.

Also their is a certain cache when going to a foreign chain in other countries.  Just like when people in the US go to the latin joints and think they are getting something special, when it is just typical latin food.

In Bogota you can get this for 5 bucks.

Also, in Colombia the Mcdonalds there have a decent fried chicken.

The sad thing is, KFC used to be worthwhile until about a decade or so ago, when their quality and reputation took a friggin' nosedive even as their prices went up.

Now, they're just another overmarketed shiatty fast food chain owned by Yum!, coasting slowly downhill on a reputation build a few decades ago as a great place to get chicken.

CSB: I recently went to a KFC in Factoria, WA, and that last stop convinced me that I'll never step foot in a KFC again. Flies flying around the soda machine. Filthy front counter, in the pickup area. I watched some teenaged moron drop a glove on the floor while trying to put it on, pick it back up, and put it on anyway. Nasty-looking restaurant, clearly meant to exploit the nearby high school for cheap labor. Never again.

It's brand recognition. I'd think that they were first fried chicken place that opened in many parts of the world, so its got a head start.

KFC, which once had good chicken (but nothing else), started sucking the day Yum brands bought them and reduced them to crap fast food just like they did with Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. Some decades back, Taco Bell prepared all of their foods from scratch on site. Then they were judged to be one of the best FF chains, since he food was fresh and reasonably healthy (for fast food). Today, nothing is prepared on site, but only assembled from highly processed food products. KFC has pretty much gone the same route, but at least they must actually cook their chicken on site.

Taco Bell has never been good, even 20 years ago it was just adequate.

Taco Bell was popular because you could buy a metric ass ton of tacos for 5 bucks, but those days have long been gone.

I was thinking about when they first expanded to the East Coast in the mid-1970. Believe it or not, it was actually quite good then and they had five or six people actually cooking in the kitchen.

The chicken is awful. However, the sides, cole slaw and mashed potatoes & gravy are delicious. The biscuits are inedible.

Popeye's will sell me a leg and a thigh of their spicy-style chicken on Tuesdays for $1.29.  I'll probably eat that tonight.  I hope the wife and mother-in-law don't want the overpriced biscuits, cole slaw, or mashed potatoes this evening.  I can steam better vegetable sides at home.

Haven't tasted KFC Original Recipe in several years now: are their chicken parts still embarrassingly small?

I can't speak for other countries, but KFC is extremely popular here in the Cayman Islands. But I think it's for a specific reason.

From the local website, they "localized some items on the menu to fit with our Caribbean surroundings and tastes ".

I guess the recipes are different somehow. Local KFC is incredibly good. But every time I've ever had it in the States, it's been terribad.

I went to KFC in Thailand a couple of times. I think both times were in Bangkok. The food was amazing! We got actual silverware and real dishes to eat off of. Tasted far better than Canadian KFC that is for sure. The atmosphere was closer to a Pizza Hut or Olive Garden rather than BK or McD's.
 
2014-08-05 03:54:51 PM  
I used to really enjoy KFC in the late 80s and 90s but a lot has changed since. And as a kid with a limited grasp of the big picture, I nostalgically remember KFC used to give you wet toilettes without you having to ask for them. And sporks. Lots of sporks. In short, most fast food chains are too busy nickle and diming anyone dumb enough to go eat their "food". They don't care about anything else except the bottom line these days. Yeah, get off my lawn.

While I still may have the occasional but rare craving for fried chicken, I have decided to support local establishments instead. For example: Austin, Texas has an amazing chain that is both delicious and very inexpensive. So if I ever get the craving for good chicken, namely Monterrey style pollo asado - it's El Regio/El Pollo Rico. It's not the same but I at least know it's local, clean, healthy and you can smell these locations a mile away. Also, their green sauce is something people can only dream about. So much so, people buy it by the pint because many have has trouble replicating it. [via Chowhound]


What a hole-in-the-wall location may look like:
69.195.124.72

Monterrey-style Pollo Asada on charcoal...

Creamy Jalapeno Salsa is absolutely amazing on almost everything:

So yeah, f*ck KFC and the blasphemy they've made out of Colonel Sanders originally finger lickin' chicken.
