Free KFC Alert (Or Will Riese Screw us Again?)
So by now you may or may not have heard about KFC’s new “Grilled Chicken” (being hawked by B list Food Network celebs.) Knowing that few would probably pay to try this stuff, KFC is giving away free grilled chicken this Monday, April 27th (one piece person) at all participating locations. Sadly though, all the KFC’s in Midtown are owned and operated by Riese, which has a pretty bad track record of participation in these things.
Thankfully though it is looking promising. I called the location on Broadway btw. 33+34th yesterday and the person who answered said they were participating. (One piece per person, and it will probably be a leg or thigh.) Now on to the matter of the chicken itself… I’ll always take free food- but I’m not so sure of this whole grilled chicken thing. I love KFC’s fried chicken (actually, I love *all* fried chicken) but grilled chicken? Best case scenario: it’s delicious, real grilled chicken- I’m thinking Pollo Tropical. But I grew up in Miami. I’ve had Pollo Tropical. And from the look of that photo above… this is no Pollo Tropical. Those grill marks look painted on, and whether you love or hate the Pollo Tropical, at least you see the chickens cooking on the grill behind the counter.
Anybody tried this stuff yet? Is it worth fighting the crowds for free chicken on Monday?
