Now, KFC wants to test ‘vegetarian chicken’ to promote healthier food

By

The Louisville-based global fast-food chain, which has deepened its roots in India over the years, is gearing up to test the new product in the United Kingdom, in certain locations where this form of food is a delicacy. In a bid to promote healthier food, days after World Environment Day, the fast-food chain (UK) hopes to launch leaner meals.

Famous American fast food restaurant chain, Kentucky Fried Chicken or simply KFC, is planning to test out something unique to promote healthier food. The restaurant chain, which specialises in fried chicken, is understood to be “testing vegetarian fried chicken” if a Foodbeast report is to be believed. The fast food delivery chain, founded by Charles Harland Sanders, is now trying to up the game by trying something new.

According to the report, The Louisville-based global fast-food chain, which has deepened its roots in India over the years, is gearing up to test the new product in the United Kingdom, in certain locations where this form of food is a delicacy. In a bid to promote healthier food, days after World Environment Day, the fast-food chain (UK) hopes to launch leaner meals.

The company, however, made it clear that the flavour of the new, unique meal will not differ as it would contain the same 11 spices, used to season the chicken before cooking. For KFC, the transition is a great leap towards adding more customers who are seeking to change their food habits.

It may be noted that the vegetarian alternative is supposedly healthier but no concrete information was given on how the vegetarian chicken will be made. KFC, in a statement, told FoodBeast that the recipe is in its early stages and details are a top secret.

The restaurant chain is confident that the new item will be added this year to the menu after it has been perfected. First, it would be tested with willing customers, following which a fulltime rollout can be expected. Food connoisseurs and KFC lovers can expect this on the restaurant chain’s menu cards as early as 2019.

Indians looking to taste the unique combination have to wait longer as it would first make its debut in the UK. The company, however, left options open with regards to where it will be sold if it proves to be a success among customers.
