KFC, which stands for Kentucky Fried Chicken, is apparently founded in Kentucky. It was founded during the Great Depression by entrepreneur Harland Sanders. It evidently specializes in fried chicken, but now offers different kinds of food found in different countries. Now KFC stands as the second largest fast food restaurant in the world.

KFC chicken menu boasts of a product which is called their “Original Recipe”. It is seasoned with 11 herbs and spices that are, of course, a corporate secret. Their chicken menus are available in either single or double individual servings, or in bucket, which they called as family-sized meal. Family-sized meal or bucket meal contains between 6 and 20 chicken pieces. It can be all “Original” or all “Hot and Spicy” or a mixture of both. Bucket meals are divided into different cuts: drumsticks, thighs, wings, keel, and backbone-based breast.

Here’s the list of their menu with their nutritional value.

KFC also offers different kinds of food but the food it serves vary depending from the country where its restaurant can be found. Say for example, KFC Saudi Arabia has additional food menu that cannot be found in any other countries. However, their original food offerings of chicken and sandwich menus stay, albeit some are with modifications in their preparations.
