Posted by VoltmanI had a bucket of KFC once, about twenty five years ago when I was a journeyman. It was in a town in the Thames valley, I sat in my van at the back of the pub I was staying in and the bones, skin, fat and breadcrumb armour plating comtained within the bucket were my evening meal. I know chicken was mentioned somewhere but I didn't find any. As my temper often prevented me from complaining directly in those days, I have harboured an intense dislike of this garbage ever since.
I liken the product to the best meal one could make using only a stripped chicken carcass and anything found rotting at the bottom of a commercial kitchen wheelie bin. I firmly believe that a second, empty, bucket should be on hand. Enjoy. Voltman
I was brought up on rotting bones,skin and fat. Lovely jubbly

My wife likes Kentucky Fried Chicken, so occasionally we bring a bucket home. I will occasionally have a piece, I am not keen on chicken at all and the fries are a carbon copy of MacDonald's so I don't touch them. My main complaint is I don't understand where they get all those minute pieces of chicken from. Do they breed Pygmy chickens, though I have to say we once bought some in Torquay and I thought it was Kentucky Fried Turkey it was so large.
Actually they should be called Kentucky frieds hens, as, as i understand it, all the chickens used are old hens which have been fried under pressure (like a pressure cooker) to make them not too tough. I would agree that the chickens seem to be small, but perhaps they are breeding a special line, as they used to be bigger portions. I quite like KFC when it is well cooked, though i was a bit put off many years ago after they raided the shop in Erdington on the new road. The manager had miss-ordered a much larger quantity than he could use properley and was cooking pieces that were rather off - I seem to remember the newspaper article saying the unused pieces in the fridge were really green
