I am going to bet "YES"*
KFC plans to offer grilled chicken on menu Company makes move to cater to people seeking healthier fare
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - What in the name of Colonel Harland Sanders is going on at KFC? The chain built by his secret recipe for fried chicken is about to give equal billing to, gulp, grilled chicken.
Kentucky Fried Chicken customers will be greeted eventually by lighted "Now Grilling" signs, starting in coming weeks in select U.S. cities. Storefront signs will be altered to promote the new product — called Kentucky Grilled Chicken. Even the brand's ubiquitous chicken buckets will get a makeover.
"This is transformational for our brand," said Doug Hasselo, KFC's chief food innovation officer.
* Only IF the flavor is close to the original and the color has to have that "cooked look", if you know what I mean. No drenching in disgusting bbq sauce...just the meat and the flavor, plus less calories and fat should help them through the hump.
