KFC's Curry Chicken

Yet another flavour of fried chicken from Colonel Sanders. Kentucky Fried Chicken now brings to us Fried Curry Chicken! Of course, the weirdest thing about their Fried Curry Chicken is that there is no curry. It is simply chicken marinated with curry powder and fried.

Gotta admit though that the aroma is quite good but when you bite down into it there's no oomph in the meat. The piece Siew Toh had was salty. The one I had was quite tasteless ( but aromatic ).

In Malaysia, KFC offers their fried chicken in to variations. One is the Original Recipe whilst the other more popular variety is Hot n Spicy. Unfortunately KFC elected to replace Hot n Spicy with Curry Chicken during its promotional period ( Actually I like Original Recipe but most people I know prefer Hot n Spicy ).

Why mess with a winning formula? The least they could do is to offer 3 flavours instead of relegating Hot n Spicy onto the bench.

Kentucky Fried Chicken's Fried Curry Chicken. The curry leaves are a really nice touch :)

Correction: KFC's new product is called Curry Crunch.

I think they offer only 2 products at a time because of two reasons: easier to manage in the kitchen and 2, they want people to try the new product and if the more popular Spicy is still available, more may go for that instead.

Anyway I like the new Curry Crunch!

Yeah I actually understand why they only want to have 2 flavours at a time. But I can't help but feel that they didn't make that wise a decision to leave out the Hot n Spicy chicken. Glad you liked it though. Maybe KFC didn't make a terrible decision afterall.


The plastic plate came back during the promotional period of the Curry Crunch. They normally serve on those dumb paper boxes.

You guys all don't know how to eat aa good fried chicken. You must order an original nad not hot n spicy as Uncle Sanders didn't serve that during his days. Put a little Malaysian taste and you guys go GA GA over it. Think about it. You pay to taste original or hot N spicy.
