There’s a new nugget in town. Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) introduces Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets, available in select restaurants in Charlotte, NC, starting 18 July for a limited time only.

Made with 100% white meat and hand-breaded with KFC’s unique original recipe of 11 herbs and spices that made the fried chicken chain famous, the KFC Nuggets can be enjoyed as a snack, meal on-the-go, complement to the bucket meal, or even as an appetizer on the way home.

“While nuggets often come in small packages, that doesn’t mean they should have small flavor. We wanted to introduce Nuggets with the flavor and ingredients that live up to our legacy as the original fried chicken experts,” said Nick Chavez, chief marketing officer, KFC US “Our Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets offer a new way to enjoy our distinctive 11 herbs and spices and will have you saying, now That’s Finger Lickin’ Good.”

Each juicy nugget is bursting with so much flavor it doesn’t require dipping, though that doesn’t mean you can’t dip them. The new nuggets can be paired with any of your favorite KFC sauces, including KFC sauce, honey BBQ, classic ranch, or honey mustard.

To celebrate the arrival of KFC’s new menu item in Queen City, KFC is delivering an exclusive first taste of the new nuggets to the invaluable staff at several atrium health maternity center locations who help bring new nuggets into the world each and every day.

Fried chicken fans in the Charlotte metropolitan and surrounding areas such as Concord, Mint Hill, Shelby, Salisbury, and more can get a taste of KFC Nuggets, by ordering at participating restaurants or skipping the drive-thru line by ordering through KFC’s quick pick-up option.
