Using It

These actually do taste like original recipe, though they're a little drier than regular chicken pieces or other strips. PROBABLY BETTER THAN POPEYE'S STRIPS PLEASE DON'T HURT ME.

The Best Part

Tasty! It's a big chicken tender that tastes how KFC is supposed to taste.

Tragic Flaw

Dry. Chicken bones aren't just meat handles, they also help keep moisture and flavor in the meat around them.

Should You Buy This

Hell yes! (That is not a vomit face, it's a look of skepticism turning to trying to take an even gianter bite because it's good.)

DISCUSSION

Bones keep flavour and moistness in, because "boneless" mechanically separated meat is steam/pressure driven off the bones, then bleached with ammonia and has so many other treatments that it's barely chicken anymore :)
