KFC Has Gone Full Sun’s Out Buns Out & Brought Back The Popcorn Chicken Slab For Another Run

It is happening again. Those dastardly snack demons at KFC have brought back one of the most unholy creations to the menu for a third showing. Yep, the Popcorn Chicken Slab has returned for a hot minute this month.

The cult-fave menu item was last seen in shops back in 2020. After two years of fans demanding it, the slab has returned for a few weeks of deliciousness.

For the uninitiated, the Popcorn Chicken Slab pretty much does what it says on the lid. It’s a pack of six still-attached dinner rolls stuffed with crispy, crunchy popcorn chicken, goopy tasty cheese and BBQ sauce.

It’s meant for sharing with a couple of mates, but you and I both know that’s not going to happen in the slightest. We’re all absolutely going chaos mode and biting into that thing the way Bill Shorten eats a sausage sanga: right in the middle.

Sadly these are only available on the mainland this time around — sorry Tassie — and they’re only on the menu from today (October 4) until the 31st. Plenty of time to hoover one or two down during a rainy day couch sesh.

If you’ve got a particular hunger, the Popcorn Chicken Slab can also be rolled into a combo with chippies and a drink. Or you can go real large and cop the Slab Feast which includes a finger-lickin’ selection of Original Recipe chook, tenders and chips.

Here’s a devilish idea: get the combo and put chippies in the slab. That’s some real hacking the menu energy right there. Some serious carb-on-carb action.

Hell, get a potato and gravy and use it like a dipping consommé. Who knows when this drool-inducing chook slab will be back again so you may as well go all out, right?

Now if you’ll excuse me I have a very important lunch date/food coma with the Colonel.
