KFC's Plant-Based Chicken: Prepared in a Separate Fryer - Would You Try It?!

If you didn't know, now you know: Beyond Meat and KFC teamed up to roll out fried plant-based nuggets and boneless wings! That's right, KFC, the fast-food chain known for their "finger lickin' good" fried chicken will now have Beyond Fried Chicken 😱

The two launched their Beyond Fried Chicken with a taste test on August 27th at one KFC location in Smyrna, Georgia near Atlanta's SunTrust Park. The Beyond Fried Chicken is made with 100% plant-based ingredients. Beyond Meat and KFC have confirmed that the Beyond Fried Chicken will be prepared in a separate fryer to serve vegans and non-vegans alike.

Before doors opened for sales, there was already a line around the block; and in just five hours, KFC was sold out completely of their plant-based fried chicken! Those who tried the nuggets and boneless wings said the Beyond Fried Chicken was well worth the two-hour wait. KFC also stated that they sold as much plant-based fried chicken in those five hours as they do their popcorn chicken. Now that's something to celebrate!
