After our hopes for spicy chicken were dashed by the KFC marinated in Tabasco Sauce that tasted like capsicum, KFC won over our hearts (and arteries) again with their Popcorn Chicken Go Bucket.
Popcorn chicken or ‘bite size pieces of real breast fillet chicken tumbled in [their] signature marinade and cooked in a crunchy coating’ is a permanent menu item at KFC, but this limited edition bucket has over 80 pieces for $10.00.
The pieces of popcorn chicken vary in size dramatically with the piece in the photo above being one of the biggest pieces in the bucket. The smallest pieces are about a quarter of that size.
The size of the popcorn chicken may vary but each piece contains juicy chicken breast without a single piece containing just batter. The coating is deliciously tasty as you’d expect from KFC’s original recipe. It could be crunchier, although their softness is likely the result of being piping hot and trapped in a bucket with their steam.
We’d return for buckets of these bite-size morsels!
Popcorn Chicken Go Bucket appeared on KFC menus in Sydney, Australia from mid-May 2017.
