KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) the fried chicken king, recently announced plans to roll out "Original Recipe Boneless". KFC Executives insist this may be the brand's most important step forward since the company was founded more than 60 years ago.

The risky move is KFC's public admission that it's core product - a big bucket filled with fried chicken legs, thighs & breasts (on the bone) may be banished to the dust heap of fast food lore. These executves are trying to target the ultra finicky generation of the millennials.

Personally, I think this is a HUGE MISTAKE ON KFC'S part! I predict this move will go over about like Coca Cola's attempt in 1985 to improve the original Coca Cola recipe. This proved to be a big flop & did serious (temporary) damage to the company's sales.

The outcry by the public was so great, that Coca Cola had to go back to making the original recipe. That is why TODAY we see "Classic Coca Cola" in the stores. This renaming of the product was to insure customers that this "Classic Coke" was the original recipe & not the new "improved Coca Cola".

Obviously, KFC executives are ignorant of the fact that without the bones - their fried chicken will loose some of the good flavor. The bones is what helps flavor the meat...

This is 100% true about KFC going boneless!

My youngest son who spent close to 20 yrs working for the USDA as a Federal Meat Inspector & Grader & who still keeps up on what is going on in the meat industry, told me this news the other day.

But, in order to get more information - I went on the internet. If you want to check this out for yourself - be my guest.

But I assure you the last couple of paragraphs (or so) are all my own opinons. Because, I remember back in 1985 when Coca Cola was in big trouble with the American people when they tried to change the original Coca Cola recipe. The improved Coca Cola was too sweet & was not as good as the original recipe.

And with over 50 years of cooking experience - I can ASSURE you that - it is the bone & the fat in meat that gives it it's flavor!

That is why I cringe when I go to the grocery store & see that they have trimmed off all the fat from steaks & pork chops. I absolutely will not buy beef steak, beef chuck roast or pork chops that has no fat on the meat!

And I absolutely refuse to buy a ham that is not a (bone in) ham, because the bone helps flavor the whole ham - the same is true with chicken.

Did you know that it is the marbling effect in meat (the fat) that determines if the cut of beef steak is choice or not. I learned that from a professional meat grader - my own son! If a beef steak doesn't have enough fat marbled throught the meat - the meat is graded as a more inferior cut of meat - and therefore is not as valuable.

Meat graders in the big meat processing plants play a HUGE ROLE in determininng the quality & setting the price in what the plant is able to charge for the meat in the grocery stores, restruants, etc.

And naturally, it is not unusual for packing plants to try to bribe the USDA grader. My son said he had been offered bribes (in one way or another) many times. However, I'm proud to say he refused all offers.

John Doe,
This just shows the extent of your reading comprehension - if you even read past the 1st paragraph of my original post about KFC.

Did you not read the part that said KFC's BIG BUCKET of fried chicken will soon be boneless? Did I mention any of their other product lines changing?

Alumni,

Did you read what I said. It is my understanding that the boneless option was a new addition to the line, not that it would be replacing the existing product line. KFC was going to offer you the choice. You could order your Big Bucket "traditional style" or, for lack of a better phrase, bone in or you could order it boneless.

From what I understand, on April 14,(tomorrow) KFC will begin offering BONELESS ORIGINAL RECIPE fried chicken in their big bucket meals.

But company plans are - that within 5 years, EVERY KFC PRODUCT will be COMPLETELY BONELESS!

Of course, some young parents are all in favor of boneless chicken - because they don't have to worry about picking the meat off the bones for their small children.

But, any boneless chicken I've ever tasted just does NOT have the same flavor as chicken on-the-bone. It sort of makes me think of some of those (over-processed) hams which have no bones (or flavor). Some of these hams are encased in a sort of plastic 'fake' rind or skin.

I fear some of those products have been processed in a manner that adds other filler ingredients mixed in with the ham to congeal it together (and I'm not talking about the water content). Lots of these 'fake' hams are not really hams at all!

I've had occassion to taste these 'fake' hams at other peoples's homes & at company functions. They are not worth throwing your money away on! They are dry & bear little resemblence to the taste of real ham.

If KFC goes completely boneless - I fear this too, is what will happen to chicken. The chicken meat will be processed in a manner with other products & congealed together to make a 'taste-like' product - which will be a far-cry from the taste of 'real chicken'.

Of course, KFC executives are probably hoping that the public will not know the difference. If boneless fried chicken is served long enough - people will eventually NOT know the difference between 'fake processed' chicken & the real thing...
