A wise man once said, “There are only two certainties in life – death and taxes”. But they were wrong…

For the last 90 years, KFC have been serving us delicious chicken, made from a secret blend of 11 herbs and spices, and in that time every fast food lover in the land could be absolutely, positively, 100% certain of dining out on Original Recipe chicken at one of their restaurants.

Until now…

In potentially alarming, and distressing news, KFC has revealed that for the first time ever, they’re departing from their Original Recipe chicken.

It’s big news to take in: If you need a second to gather your thoughts, or maybe step out the room for a second, we totally understand…

Still with us? Ok, let’s continue.

Don’t worry, KFC will still be serving Original Recipe chicken off the bone, but they’re bringing a new dish to the menu which is cooked and prepared in a totally different way.

Inspired by the flavours of the deep south, the Nashville Hot chicken, which will be made available on the menu across the UK for a limited time, is topped with gkerkins encrusted in cayenne and paprika and actually sounds pretty great.

“Don’t worry – [KFC] hasn’t gone clucking mad, it’s launched the undiscovered legend that is Nashville Hot chicken. For the first time thanks to KFC, the UK will get to experience this true, authentic taste of the Deep South,” KFC said in a statement.

The dish will be available between May 22 and June 18. If not, you’ve always got good old Original Recipe chicken to fall back on.

Meanwhile, loaded recently discovered a secret menu item which you can add to any KFC meal, and is totally free.
