Fast Food Review: KFC's Kentucky Grilled Chicken
When I opened the box, I was stuck by just how beautiful a piece of chicken this was. Crispy skin and grill marks are truly a sight to behold. The skin turned out to be just as tasty as purty: well-seasoned, crispy, and juicy (mmmm chicken fat). There was even a hit of a burnt flavor that can only be found on grilled meat.
Sadly, it went downhill once I got into the meat. The flesh was rather dry (something that I rarely see with thighs) and lacked flavor. If the meat is indeed marinated as advertised, they might need to let it soak a while longer.
I give the skin 4.5 out of 5 Secret Recipes, The meat 2 out of 5 grade school cafeteria baked chickens, and the overall product 3 out of 5 Crystal Pepsis.
Next time I wonder if they'll just let me get an order of the skin?
