KFC Grilled Chickens!!!!!!

Kentucky Fried Chicken, a popular US restaurant chain found in 80 countries, will soon introduce grilled chicken into their menus to cater customers who don't eat fried chicken.

With obesity raising concerns in the U.S., this plan of KFC is timely and will work wonders for those limiting their calorie intakes. The grilled chicken menu options will contain less calories and fat than KFC's comparable fried chicken meals.

Grilled chicken has between 60 and 180 calories and three to nine grams of fat compared with fried chicken which typically contains between 130 and 360 calories and eight to 24 grams of fat.

Price? Grilled chicken will be priced at a similar level to fried chicken.
KFC hopes grilled chicken will lure back health-conscious consumers who dropped fried chicken from their diets, or cut back on indulging.

The introduction of Grilled Chicken would mark a significant evolution to the KFC menu. The new product is designed to appeal to KFC lovers who say they want non-fried options while staying true to the great taste and quality of KFC's traditional menu.

Kentucky Grilled Chicken is marinated and seasoned with a savory blend of secret herbs and spices and then grilled to juicy perfection. KFC's Grilled Chicken has between 60 to 180 calories and 3 to 9 grams of fat. Original Recipe(R) chicken has between 130 to 360 calories and 8 to 24 grams of fat. Kentucky Grilled Chicken prices will be on par with KFC's fried menu items.

"We have worked tirelessly to develop a grilled product that would have met Colonel Sanders' high expectations for flavor and taste," commented Doug Hasselo, Chief Food Innovation Officer at KFC. "We're confident the Colonel would have given this grilled recipe his seal of approval. It truly is finger lickin' good."

A Packaging Twist
The flavorful grilled chicken isn't the only thing new about this introduction. Even the Colonel's iconic bucket has a new and exciting look. KFC locations serving Grilled and Fried Chicken will do so in buckets that are half red and half white -- a design unlike any other in the 50-plus year history of the bucket. This version includes "Kentucky Grilled Chicken" graphics on the white side and "Kentucky Fried Chicken" graphics on the red side. Of course, images of KFC's world famous founder Colonel Sanders will also adorn the bucket, which is designed to communicate the variety of menu offerings at KFC.

Focused on the Nutritionals
In addition to offering new items, KFC is committed to examining the nutritional profile of its current menu items. The brand made significant strides with its transition to zero grams trans fat per serving fried chicken in April 2007. KFC is also currently making strides to reduce sodium on a variety of menu items.

I hope this comes to the Philippines FAST!!!!!!! I wanna try it!!!!
