KFC reveals new KFC Chicken Nuggets ahead of a nationwide launch starting March 27, 2023. In contrast to the standard of formed ground chicken nuggets, KFC Chicken Nuggets are made with small but whole cuts of white meat chicken that’s hand-breaded with the Colonel’s Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices.
Prices for KFC Nuggets start at $3.49 for a 5-piece order at participating location nationwide. They’re also available in 8-, 12-, and 36-piece orders as well as in a combo meal. You can eat them as is or pair them with your choice of dipping sauces, including KFC Sauce, Honey BBQ, Classic Ranch, Honey Mustard, or Buffalo Ranch.
The arrival of the new chicken nuggets follows a successful test run in 2022. It’s been some time since KFC last offered a chicken nugget but back in 2012, they offered a similar product under the “KFC Bites” name (you can find my review of them from back then here). They also sold Popcorn Chicken as Popcorn Nuggets (I tried those as well) for a while.
Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets are meant to be a permanent addition to the KFC menu and will replace Popcorn Nuggets in KFC’s Famous Bowls.
