KFC now has a third southern-inspired friend chicken flavor — Smoky Mountain BBQ. It joins the spicy and smoky Nashville Hot Chicken and the sweet and tangy Georgia Gold Honey Mustard BBQ in what KFC calls the Taste of the South menu.
The new flavor combines barbecue recipes from Memphis and the Carolinas. According to the press release, it has a touch of vinegar to please North Carolinians, a little bit of sweetness for the Kansas City-style faithful and a crispiness that even Memphis dry rub fans will appreciate. The flavor is available with Extra Crispy Tenders, Chicken Littles, and Extra Crispy Chicken.
KFC’s Smoky Mountain BBQ Chicken is available for a limited time at participating locations.
