Nobody's Gonna Pick Any Bones Says Colonel Sanders, Teens Clamor For Boneless Chicks

Tearing meat off chicken bones annoys teenagers so KFC is doing a "game change."


Kentucky Fried Chicken chain is ditching the scrawny bones.
Rolling out its Original Recipe Boneless options April 14 as it attempts to draw back patrons seeking more "portable" convenient foods. Some 80% of chicken is served in the form of strips, bites and fillets in the US of A. So competitors like McDonald's, Chick-fil-A and Burger King will bring to the table "hassle-free" chicken offerings like wraps, nuggets and sandwiches.

KFC says "It's a new way of doing business." Owned by Taco Bell and Pizza Hut parent Yum Brands, KFC offers a two-piece combo with a side order, biscuit and drink for $4.99. A 10-piece mixed bucket with four boneless pieces and six on-the-bone pieces -- comes to $10 more.
