REVIEW: KFC Original Boneless Filet

The new KFC Original Boneless Filet makes me wonder if the company has choked their creative chicken too many times. After coming out with noteworthy products, like their Kentucky Grilled Chicken and Fiery Grilled Wings, they came out with a product that’s basically the stuff they stick in between buns to make some of their sandwiches.

It’s like KFC came up with the idea during their refractory period after choking their creative chicken, because as every man knows, it’s difficult to get anything to come up during a refractory period. That includes good ideas.

To give you an idea of how big a KFC Original Boneless Filet is, just imagine four McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets fused together into something that would make McNuggets even more unnatural. It’s lightly breaded and seasoned with the Colonel’s secret herbs and spices and then dumped into a sleeve usually reserved for KFC’s potato wedges.

If you’re familiar with KFC’s chicken, then you know what their Original Boneless Filet tastes like. It’s the same flavor you’ve learned to love, although beyond that there’s nothing exciting about its flavor and, even though it looks like a giant chicken nugget, it doesn’t come with a dipping sauce. The chicken was tender and somewhat juicy, but the exterior coating wasn’t crispy and seemed like it was just there to provide some friction to make sure the deep-fried chicken doesn’t slide out of its sleeve. Overall, the KFC Original Boneless Filet wasn’t original, nor does it get me excited.

Personally, I like bones in my chicken because they remind me I’m eating an animal and that I’m higher on the food chain than them. Yeah! Suck on that chickens! While I suck on my fingers, because you’re finger lickin’ good. I also like having bones around in case I have to defend myself against a rancor.

  1. Isn’t that obviously their take on a lowcarb meal? 4 carbs with 1 being fiber. It finally gives a low carber a reason to go back into a KFC, so now we aren’t stuck with just Hardees and Wendys.

  2. I’m really annoyed that they never actually tell people when a product is made of ‘fused’ chicken slurry. Also, is it white because it’s made from actual white meat parts, or because they’ve bleeched the disgusting mess.

    I’d rather eat a Chik’n (fake) nugget if I’m gonna eat fused faux-meat.

  3. angry bob is tired of everybody catering to the white meat supremacists. angry bob likes his meat dark, damnit. Don’t make angry bob come down there.

  4. It’s definitely a lower calorie option for kfc as well. Instead of having a 500+ calories in a sandwich or wrap, you can opt to get this and fries and have it be under 500 all together.

  5. I tried one of these myself and I was like, hmmm, what’s the point here? I suppose it might be a decent choice if you were on a low-carb diet or something, but other than that…yawn. I predict this one won’t be on the menu for too long at KFC.

  6. Are you sure this was the deep-fried version? It looks “grilled” in the picture. KFC has to stop testing my gag reflex.

  7. KFC has had some rescent success but this doesen’t look appatizing at all.. it just ooks like some sort of geometric shape made out of random chicken nudgels and crudgels (if you get the reference feel free to lol). This really is nasty looking and will probably go down the same path as memorable KFC items such as the notorius “Double Down Chicken Sandwhich” although for some reason this seems even less legitamate than a sandwhich with two chicken cutlets for buns…

  8. For people who crave the KFC OR taste, but not the fat/calories, this is a good option. A regular OR bone-in breast is 510 calories and 33 fat grams. For a comparison, a McDonalds Quarterpounder with cheese is 510 calories and 26 fat grams.
