New Georgia Gold Chicken Coming to KFC on January 29

Last summer we brought you a first glimpse at Georgia Gold Chicken from KFC.  Beginning Sunday, January 29th, new Georgia Gold Chicken will be hitting KFC menu boards nationwide.  Georgia Gold Chicken features a new sweet and tangy honey mustard BBQ sauce and will be available as tenders, bone-in chicken, wings, or Chicken Littles.  This will be KFC’s second new “regional specialty flavor” after Nashville Hot Chicken which received the national promo treatment back in January of last year.KFC Georgia Gold

    So, is it just a new breading style with a new sweet and tangy honey mustard dipping sauce, or is the honey mustard sauce in/on the chicken itself?

    • Sascha says:

      Add far as I know, it’s fine just like the Nashville, pick your extra crispy of choice, then they dunk it, or cover, in sauce.

    • TheDude says:

      If it’s supposed to be similar to the Nashville Hot, then I believe they take their normal Tenders and apply the sauce to them before serving.

      • Chris says:

        Thanks (to Sascha and TheDude … that sounds like a bad 70’s TV show)

        Too bad. I don’t like saucy fried chicken. Definitely prefer to dip it myself, so it doesn’t get soggy.

        • PhilSonOfCoul says:

          Definitely not over sauced, I’ve gotten the Nashville tenders several times and they soak it up well. No soggyness.

        • BigBelly says:

          The sauce is very thin, (the Nashville hot is oil based, and this new one looked like it might have a healthy dose as well) The tray the tenders come in have grooves that the sauce collects in, as long as you keep the tray flat, the tenders don’t sit in it, and you can control how much you get by dragging them through the grooves. I hate soggy breading, but they designed this well, it’s not really a issue.

    Their take on Lee’s?

    Looking forward to trying this. Getting Popeye’s vibes.

  4. Johnnyboy says:

    I have a feeling this is gonna be extra tasty, extra crispetty, extra crunchetty and wonderful with a little sweetness. Can’t wait to taste this when it comes out.

  5. Brian says:

    Seems more up my alley since I am not a fan of spicy things and never bothered with the Nashville Hot Chicken. This looks good though and also glad to see pickles will be included with it.

  6. Cress says:

    I had a sample the other day at my KFC. It’s a mix of their Nashville Hot sauce and a new honey mustard they’ve never had. Definitely tastes like honey mustard, with a spicy kick on the back end. I don’t know how it tastes on the chicken, as i was already eating an order of the Nashville Hot, and didn’t have a plain piece of chicken to dip it in. I did think it was
    tasty on it’s own though.

  7. CulinaryZerg says:

    If it’s half as good as Tennessee Hot, I’ll give it a shot

    • Sascha says:

      It is. Maybe a little more then half a good, but Nashville is definitely better. Georgia seems to be a bit grainy. I always get the chicken littles, and I would give the original a 7.00, Georgia a slightly better 7.25, and Nashville a 8.75.

  8. BigBelly says:

    This was good, there’s no different breading or anything, just a different sauce. The strips come packaged in the same tray as the Nashville hot.
    The first bite seemed extremely sweet to me, but the mustard became more pronounced the more I ate. I’d order it again over regular strips, but I would go with the Nashville hot between the two.
    I hope they come out with more along this line

    KFC had introduced a new Zinger today, pretty sure it went nationwide. My son bright some filets home last week, and they were delicious. I’ve now had the sandwich, with lettuce and mayo, and it’s still outstanding. I would slot it just below Chick-fil-A’s spicy, and above Wendy’s.
