Kentucky Fried Chicken® becomes the first national U.S. QSR (quick service restaurant) to introduce a plant-based chicken, in partnership with Beyond Meat®. Beyond Fried Chicken™ will make its debut August 27 in a limited test.
The new plant-based Beyond Fried Chicken offers the finger lickin’ good fried chicken flavor only KFC can deliver as a perfect choice for those searching for plant-based meat options on-the-go.
Beyond Fried Chicken is available in nuggets with choice of favorite dipping sauce, like KFC’s signature Finger Lickin’ Good sauce, or boneless wings tossed in one of three delicious sauce options: Nashville Hot, Buffalo or Honey BBQ.
KFC guests who want to make it a meal can pick from several Colonel-approved Beyond Fried Chicken options:
- Nuggets available in six or 12-piece combo meals (which include a side and medium drink) for $6.49 and $8.49, or four-piece à la carte for $1.99.
- Boneless wings available in six or 12-piece options for $6 and $12 (tax extra).
KFC turned to plant-based leader, Beyond Meat, to create a finger lickin’ good plant-based fried chicken that will appeal to lovers of both Beyond Meat and KFC. Customer feedback from the Atlanta test will be considered as KFC evaluates a broader test or potential national rollout.
