Sounds like they plan on turning out presssed chicken parts like Arby's did with their beef long ago.

I have bought boneless thighs at the grocery store before.  I do not know how they debone the thighs.  I fried them the regular way and somehow they do not taste the same without the bone???  KFC in Knoxville is actually pretty good.  Roz and I on occasion do their buffet and we are able to get fresh dropped chicken.

Not sure I see a problem--I like their chicken tenders, which are just boneless pieces of chicken breast, anyway.  I'd love to try a thigh version of that.  Boneless chicken is very easy when you're driving, which is the only time I get KFC anyway.  I'll try it, even if it means being a "heathen."

I've been trying to figure out why this is such a huge thing it even made the national news. We eat boneless chicken all the time, have for years. It only makes sense that KFC would offer boneless chicken.

Now if they would just put their 11 herbs and spices back in the chicken it might be worth buying - the true unique spicy flavor it was when Colonel Sanders was still alive and involved in KFC !

Well I think the big deal about it is that one of the most well known fried chicken places around may no longer sell chicken WITH a bone. At least that's what I took from the article. That and they were talking about their new chicken CHUNKS without actually saying what exactly the CHUNKS consisted of.

Maybe I'm looking at this from another angle. Boneless chicken is going to cook a lot faster then bone-in. Figuring a nominal 15 min brown and pressure cycle for two heads of bone-in, that's going to make pressure frying difficlult with boneless.  They probably are going to do this like thier extra crispy and using regular immersion frying, but then the taste and texture isn't going to be their signature product. On the other hand, the throughput is going to be much faster. If the test marketing of the original chicken nuggets and breaded tenderloin strips taught anything, boneless chicken is consumed at higher quantities. It may cost more, but the turnover is going to be higher and probably more profits. I seriously doubt though that they are going to stop using bone-in chicken. Their entire history and mystique is wrapped up in pieces of pressure fried chicken. They have to do something relevant soon b/c of declining market share. Thus far most of their recent innovations have tanked like the grilled chicken and the brand is becoming increasingly stale.
 
I'm making an assumption that this is going to be pre-portioned whole, deboned chicken and not some nugget-like frankenchicken process that they use everything from the chicken except the cluck.

I just read the article that got posted while I was composing my post.
 
The part that I loved was they acknowlege that young people from 20-30,
 

“Younger people don’t tend to be fans of bones — they’ve grown up with nuggets,”
I guess that sums up this lost generation. Marketing might decide to include a toy with the chicken in a little box. Hard to play video games in your parent's basement during your waking hours and use two hands to eat something. They don't appear to be fans of hard work or commited relationships either. There's no App for that.

Colonel Sanders hasn't been roaming the halls since before I hit my teens.

The people who will lament the fact that new boneless is coming to KFC...are people that probably haven't been customers of KFC since the Colonel was doing Jigs!

I will not be a fan of this. I rarely eat at KFC, but if i do, I want what I used to eat- bone in chicken, cole slaw and potatoes/gravy on the side.  And a biscuit. Now an 8 piece bucket with what i mentioned is 18.99. On sale.

I just saw a commercial for it, and they're advertising white or dark meat. Which means they're using the exact same boneless/skinless chicken breasts and thighs I buy to eat at home. The only thing preventing me from trying it is it apparently only comes in original recipe, and I prefer the extra crispy. But I'd be willing to stop by there to see if I can get it in extra crispy. I like boneless chicken...leaves less trash to clean up.

I can't find a clean KFC anywhere near me, so I might eat there once every two years when I'm out of town. I would hope they don't get rid of the bones altogether.

They aren't doing away with their regular chicken, just adding boneless chicken to the menu. People want it, so they're going to serve it. Smart marketing.

KFC has built several locations around Knoxville that are new.  They are very clean and I am a clean freak coming from a pharmaceutical background.  In addition their portions are about 30% larger than Lee's or Bojangles.  Their coleslaw is outstanding.  I am not a fan of most chains but in my opinion only, KFC is very good around Knoxville.  They have a well landscaped building, spacious, clean and a nice product.
 
I have not tried their new boneless product and I still prefer bone in, regardless, I sure done like their crispy chicken thighs, coleslaw and potatoes and gravy.
 
Always get it fresh dropped.

Ah, the Chicken Ranch. But as I recall (fondly) it wasn't, um, boneless.

That was when I was 18, and all I ever had money for was the gas to get there from Austin and a few bottles of Pearl beer.

If the Chicken Ranch that you seem to recall had more Bones, perhaps it would not have gone under!  Maybe that's how the IRS got the idea of snooping on Charities, since they had the "pleasure" of owning it for a while.

Or perhaps a chicken fried steak since they've already got the biscuits and the mashed potatoes and the breading. They would have to work on that gravy though.

Ewww.  Just ewww.  Maybe I just haven't been to KFC in a while, or maybe they changed their formulas, or I've changed, but I just had an experience there that I wouldn't care to repeat. 
 
I wanted to try their boneless original recipe chicken, and it was weird--overspiced for my taste, but okay.  I still much prefer their chicken tenders.
 
However, the side of mashed potatoes and gravy and the biscuit and the iced tea were all terrible--so not worth the calories, and I didn't finish them.
 
But I digress.  The boneless original recipe fried chicken was a miss for me.  Anyone else??

I'm no fan of "boneless wings".  If I'm ordering wings, it part for the fun and pleasure of nibbling around the bones.  Plus after I learned the fact that "boneless chicken wings" overwhelmingly ar mot de-boned wings, but breasts cut into chunks and chemically flavored to be like datk meat.  Just... ew.  Pass.  Give me a real wing or none at all.

I am pretty sure I have had CFS at a KFC in San Bernadino, March 2004.  I could be wrong.  I definitely had it at Popeye's a couple of years ago, and it wasn't bad for a fast food version.  Good gravy too.
