Kentucky Fried Chicken will soon be selling chicken nuggets in stores nationwide, while also bringing back the popular $5 Mac Bowls for a limited time.
The popular chicken chain said it will introduce "new, 100 percent white meat" Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets on March 27 following "a wildly successful test run in 2022 and years without a nugget made with the signature taste of KFC on menus" in a news release shared on Thursday (March 23).
"As the original fried chicken experts, we're introducing a chicken nugget made the way only KFC can – hand-breaded with our distinctive Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices," said Nick Chavez, CMO, KFC U.S. "Simply put, you've never had chicken nuggets like these – they're the chicken nugget America deserves, and worth the wait. Now that's Finger Lickin' Good!"
The nuggets will be hand-breaded with KFC's Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices as 5-, 8-, 12- or 36-piece entrees starting at $3.49.
KFC also announced its plan to bring back its Mac & Cheese Bowl on April 3, which will now include the new KFC Nuggets, as well as the popular Nashville Hot sauce, for the $5 Spicy Mac & Cheese Bowl option.
"Fans of KFC's beloved Famous Bowls will be overjoyed to hear KFC Famous Bowls® will now be packed with even more original flavor and topped with the new KFC Nuggets. In addition to upgrading the Famous Bowls, new KFC Nuggets will also be available in kids' meals at participating KFC restaurants starting March 27," the company wrote.
Earlier this month, KFC brought back the Double Down, one of its most notorious menu items after a nearly decade-long hiatus, for four weeks.
