Made with its own secret recipe — a blend of six herbs and spices of course, the grilled chicken is cooked in specially designed and patented ovens.

The “KGC” is a healthier alternative to the “original recipe” that will continue to be on the menu. KFC says each piece of its grilled chicken has 70 to 180 calories and four to nine grams of fat. By contrast, the Original Recipe (fried) items have between 110 and 370 calories and 7 to 21 grams of fat, depending on the piece. The grilled chicken contains from 160 to 440 milligrams of sodium per piece, as opposed to 290 to 1,050 milligrams of sodium per piece of Original Recipe chicken.

“The introduction of Kentucky Grilled Chicken is a defining moment in our brand’s storied history,” KFC President Roger Eaton proclaimed. “KGC is the latest menu innovation that showcases our commitment to meeting our customers’ ever-changing needs… This product will transform the industry.”

You can sample the new recipe for free on Monday, April 27th which has been delcared “UNFry” Day by KFC. Everyone that stops by a KFC restaurant that day will receive one FREE piece of Kentucky Grilled Chicken.
