New Original Recipe Deep Fried Turkey from KFC

We’ve gone from Kentucky Fried Chicken to Kentucky Grilled Chicken… and how about the turkey?  GrubGrade reader Bill sent me this flyer picture.  Check out these North Carolina and South Carolina KFC locations offering up a new Original Recipe Deep Fried Turkey.  I’ve seen the Cajun Deep Fried Turkey at Popeyes before, but this is the first I’ve seen KFC on board with the holiday turkey season.  $33.95… interested?

    What’s the weight? Can’t make it out on the flyer.

    Interesting and another example of them trying to be Popeye’s. In all fairness, not all Popeye’s offered their deep fried cajun turkey and I don’t think they really did much to promote it.

    I can say I have had one of theirs (and I swear Honey Baked Ham used to sell one – they do have a cajun turkey, just not deep fried). I’m not sure how much the cajun spices contributed (but they are good) – but hands down it was the best turkey I have ever had!

    I would be willing to give this a shot if they offer it locally, and forgetting about KFC, if anyone here has never had a deep fried turkey and has the opportunity to try one, go for it. Especially if you love fried chicken, you won’t regret it (except when you step on the scale, but that’s what exercise if for)! 😉

    still don’t know the weight, but think that’s a bit expensive for what I can guess from the flyer.. 8-12 lbs? If they threw in like 2x orders of large sides (potatoes, gravy, etc..) maybe. Would love to try deep fried turkey though, but here bouts last year we spent (just found the ticket, wow) 13.26 for a 12.16lb turkey.

    So that would be about 20 bucks just to fry it… nah. 😀 Can buy most of the extras for that. Nice convenience for those that can do it though.

    Bojangles in NC does this too or at least they did last year.
