KFC introduces chicken nuggets to its menu but NJ has to wait

For the first time ever, Kentucky Fried Chicken introduces KFC Chicken Nuggets.

Excited New Jerseyans should relax, at least for now. The nuggets will only be available at select restaurants in Charlotte, NC for a limited time.

KFC’s new chicken nuggets are made with 100% white meat and hand-breaded with KFC’s original recipe with 11 herbs and spices.

“While nuggets often come in small packages, that doesn’t mean they have to have a little flavor. We wanted to introduce nuggets with the flavor and ingredients to live up to our heritage as the original experts of the fried chicken,” said Nick Chavez, KFC’s chief marketing officer.

Nuggets can be paired with any KFC sauce, including KFC Sauce, Honey BBQ, Classic Ranch, or Honey Mustard.

Nugget projects in the Garden State and other markets have yet to be announced. There are 56 KFC locations in New Jersey.
