Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: KFC Mini Fillet Confirmed sighting: KFC Mini Fillet
Posted: 13:13 Wed 09-06-2004. Price: 99p. Location: Northfield. Sub-flavours: With tomato sauce (for kids); with lettuce (for adults). Nutritional unusualness: Smaller version of Fillet Burger.
"rob" reports: Very nice, great value, launch on Monday 5th June 2004.

...A terse confirmation here of "lee taylor's" advance prophecy of a couple of months ago - but that's not all KFC are advertising in the window of their (flagship?) Piccadilly Circus branch, as they also appear to be offering a "Hot Breakfast" from 1.99. I'd hoped they'd broached the last great "eating chicken for breakfast" taboo, but in fact it appears to comprise a (PepsiCo) Tropicana orange juice, hash brown, a tub of barbecue beans, and pitta-like sandwich containing bacon and egg (technically a chicken product, I suppose). It's "available at participating restaurants, limited period only", which certainly makes sense, as several KFCs I know don't even bother opening until lunchtime. Speaking of time-limited offers, I believe today is the closing date to apply for your very own Open Doors McDonald's Kitchen Tour during next week's National Food Safety Week, wherein they claim you may "Be Tempted" by their "indulgent" (euphemism for "fat-packed") McFlurry, and "Be reassured" by their burgers being made from beef supplied by "over 16,000 British and Irish farmers" (and is that just in one patty?). What I'd really like to know is whether my "local" (Swiss Cottage) Micky D's has deliberately turned up the red contrast on its security CCTV monitor, so as to give the impression you're actually walking around in a lurid Ronald McDonald TV ad wonderland?

Comment: I have numerous friends who are vegetarian and they won't eat meat flavoured crisps for two reasons. A) Animal rennet B)It promotes meat eating. Anyways, me I say just go whole hog...

Comment: It's only the Cheese And Onion flavour that used to contain animal rennet, and for the past six months, they've been veggie. Check this link:

http://www.planetveggie.co.uk/walkers.htm

Good to know that Walkers caved in to consumer concern - even if it's just because they realised they could make a few more pounds off vegetarians. :)

And Cokeco, do your friends steer clear of fake-meat products, too, because of B)? I'm veggie, but would eat meat crisps if they contained no animal products. I'm not a big crisp eater though.

Comment: rennet is only used in cheese making - why would they avoid meat flavour crisps? how odd. also, i thought walkers made the change to veggie rennet a couple of years ago. maybe they started rumours before they did it. doesn't matter anyway, i don't eat cheese and onion crisps because they are vile.

Comment: What *are* you talking abooot?????

KFC chips dipped in their chicken gravy = manna from heaven.

Macdonalds fries = salt with a hint of potato.

Burger king chips = utterly disgusting in every way i can think of. Vile.

As for the whole 'veggie crisp eating' thing, none of the veggies i know have a problem with it (except for the walkers rennet thing). There are a few who refuse to eat any of those "meat substitute" vegiburgers/sossies because they are too much like meat, but most dont seem to mind meat flavoured crisps, mainly, i assume, because they taste absolutely nothing like any kind of meat that has ever existed.

Comment: A question - all you KFC lovers out there please answer. KFC chicken is the best but some of those "portions" you get are frankly gone in one bite. The breat portion however is a different story. Mouthful upon mouthful of succulent white meat....mmm. I've always been a breast man........ However, my problem is some KFC's don't flinch when u say "all breast meat please" where as others seem to think you've just asked them to run naked down the high street! Has anyone else come across this or have any thoughts? Does anyone know KFC's policy on this? Your thoughts ladies and gentlemen please....

Comment: Hello, Greedy Guts. I've never asked for a particular portion in KFC but if I did I would ask for drumsticks. Surely these are the ones that have the best meat on them? The breast is too dry.

gives various definitions of "gravy" almost all containing the phrases "meat juices" (apart from one which appears to be talking about intravenous heroin use) - so no, probably not very vegetarian...

Thanks anyway.

Comment: I work at KFC and we're not supposed to give all breast meat, all leg meat or all anything. In a 3 piece meal we have to put 2 pieces of 'white meat' and one piece of 'dark meat' so if you do get all breast pieces you're verrrrry lucky.
Posted: 01:29 Thu 19-Aug-2004 by "john" # permalink comment
Comment: if you want thick and crunchy coating then go to kfc near closing time cos the chicken has been kept warm for quite a while which makes it dry and crispy, also the same could be said for the gravy, as some of the water has evaporated by then.

Comment: having been a duty manager for several years at a k.f.c. in blackpool which won restaurant of the year in 2000 and has won several regional awards i feel compelled to tell you that chicken gravy is basically all the bits of chicken flour and chicken that falls off during the cooking process. the fat after each pressure cook is dropped out into a filter which catches these bits. this is done many times through the day the same filter being drenched with fat catching more bits at the bottom. this is scraped out at the end of a 16hr day(11am-3am next day) and left to drain overnight (an attempt to get rid of some fat!!!) it is now called the 'cracklings'. the now solidified (its been chilled now) portion of 'cracklings' is then put in water in a pan and heated till it sort of dissolves and when it is boiling you add a special 'secret recipe' of cornflour etc. mixed in water (to avoid lumps!) and continue to stir over a low heat till it returns too the boil. you then pass it through a sieve if its thick its v. hard work!! and skimm off any extra liquid(because its hot) fat as best you can so it does not look fatty therefore unappealing! it is pure profit!!!!

Comment: I still don't understand why if you're not allowed all breast meat it doesn't say so. In the USA they charge extra for white meat - I'd happily pay - I just want what I like! Is that so bad?! I can't be the only one....Can I?!
Posted: 11:59 Sat 09-Oct-2004 by "i wish to be anon" # permalink comment
Comment: hi greedy! i take it by breast meat you mean the middle part of the breast with the piece of gristle in the centre and two small bones either side? if you do mean this piece it is also known in some k.f.c.'s as the keel. this piece of meat is very popular with customers but unfortunatly due to the biological make up a a chicken it happens to have two legs, two wings, two thighs, two ribs(or breasts in some k.f.c.'s) and only one mid-breast or keel.this means when you cook a tray of chicken pieces consisting of four chickens there are thirty-six pieces of chicken which last one and a half hours. of these thirty-six pieces only four keels leaving thirty-four other pieces. it it therefore necessary due to the popularity of this piece to 'ration' it.or your pieces become uneven causing higher wastage and other customers complaining due to non-availiability. sometimes though you may get instances where customers request no keel or all dark meat then you may give more keel to even out your pieces of white to dark meat ratio. i hope this helps a bit? but please remember it is not the staffs fault they are only doing what they have been told by the powers above and are therefore doing their job correctly. 'have a nice day!!'
Posted: 21:39 Sun 10-Oct-2004 by "Greedy Guts" # permalink comment
Comment: Thanks "anon". I don't blame the staff at all! I just think being given the option for "all white meat" - and paying for it of course - would be a good thing! Thanks for your reply though!!
Posted: 23:46 Mon 11-Oct-2004 by "i wish to be anon" # permalink comment
Comment: its ok! but you can have all white meat just not all keel, your pieces would be:- 2piece meal; breast/keel + wing, 3 piece meal;breast, keel + wing, 4 pieces; 2 wings + 2keel/breast or 1 keel, 1 breast + 2 wings, 6 pieces; 3 keel/breast + 3 wings basically evening out of large/small pieces you just cant ask for all keel(large piece) or all breast(large piece) if you ask for the above combos they cant really say no just be prepared for wings!! see ya!!('',)

Comment: this is really rather intersting...

I have to say though, that one of the reasons I like KFC so much (it's probably my favourite fast food these days) is the element of chance involved in what you actually get. The fact that you don't get one of these pieces every time just makes it more satisfying when you open the box and see one.

Mini fillet is back in jan/feb!!

happy kfc'n

Comment: Breast only? That'd be terrible. OK, when it's hot and steamy the breast is the nicest bit, but cold from the fridge the following day there's nothing to beat the drumsticks. If you want a serious KFC question, why don't they ever seem to be able to cook decent fries?

As for the gravy, any food good enough to drink on it's own if you run out of soggy fries to dip in it gets my vote every time...

anyone want a sattelite navigation kit for there car for £20 what happens is you pay £20 to go a list. Once the list is full you receive the free gift of the sat nav kit. i know it sounds a bit crap but i used it before and it works.

Comment: As even Samuel Johnson noted while writing his dictionary in 1754, the English language is a highly changeable form and if you think you can fix certain rules for vocabulary, usage or punctuation you are sadly mistaken.

The internet is nurturing a rapid evolution of the language where people can express a degree of linguistic freedom. "kevr", if you're going to be prescriptionist, as well as the obvious spelling error you should know:

By ur I think you mean "you're"

By "u" I think you mean "you"

Words entirely in uppercase are not acceptable.

"American" should begin with an uppercase A.

"I" must be capitalised.

Even if you meant "asterisk", there's no apostrophe for plurals.

By "y" I think you mean "why"

There is only one u in "huge"

You are not using the right key for apostrophes; ' not `.

Only one exclamation mark is required at the end of a sentence.

An asterisk next to a word does not mean it contains a spelling mistake, maybe you're thinking of "{sic)"

`is not a quotation mark. But you may use ' or "

English is not a fine art.

I assume you meant asterisks in a plural sense so your sentence should read "are meant to mean" not "is meant to mean".

I think instead of ~ which is not really standard English punctuation, you may have meant to use this ;.

Uni is a prefix and as a single word, does not fit into the context it is used in. You mean "University" I assume.

I think you have to take a long hard think before you go around labelling people retards and making up your own rules of language usage, while completely ignoring the basic conventions of commonly understood Standard Englsh. Perhaps you should consider enrolling in one of the government's many literacy programmes. If you don't like fast food, in the future may I suggest avoiding websites that are all about it? It might be better that way.

Comment: Nice response from Stevie Nicks. I like your music by the way. Had Tusk in my head today. Not sure why.

Said everything that needed to be said.

To Aamir, though: I'm not a vegetarian but you need to do two things. First of all, don't presume to prescribe moral or ethical standards. In everything in life we make a choice. The fact that some people don't make the same choice as you does not make them "dum".

You assume way too much:

"god made us to live and eat animals" Says you. Not everyone agrees with every part of that. I rather suspect that IF God (really you should capitalize that if you're going to bother to believe in him at all) did make us, eating animals was probably not the REASON he made us.

You assume that the decision not to eat animals is based on a fear of "satin". As satin is a fabric, or more specifically a texture of a fabric (most commonly silk or rayon) I'm going to assume you mean Satan. The suggestion that ethical decisions are based purely on fear of punishment is foolish. Suggesting that we should do things because we can is just as foolish. People choose vegetarianism for a range of reasons, including concern for the welfare of animals, distaste for the killing of animals, health reasons, and a range of other reasons.

Finally, however, I just wasted 10 minutes of my life responding to someone who is clearly a cretin. Go back to school. Learn how to use words. When you speak like this, in real life, on message boards, in email, people think less of you. Any argument you might have (thankfully you offer none at all) is completely lost under the tedious banality of your idiocy.

Feel free to send any flames to matt (at!) australiangamer.com. I can take it. But if you're going to argue with me, use the English language. If you want to argue, maybe try something better than "ure dum".

I have to say it has been about 8 years since I ate KFC at all. Not due to any ethical or health reasons, simply because there are none around me. Does anyone else suspect that the gravy is just liquefied chicken coating? It certainly didn't taste like gravy the last time I had some. Although admittedly that was many a year ago. 38960 6

Comment: Stevie (sorry, but are the rooms really all on fire? :P )- as the man from Blackpool explained earlier about the gravy, I'll keep it brief here...

All of the chicken that is cooked fresh (we get it in store around 3 days after the kill date, we have a further 3 days to use it) is dunked in water, then into the flour mix (and no, we don't know what the secret recipe is either - the bags just say "Contains 11 herbs and spices"). The chicken is then put onto cooking racks, and dropped into the 360-degree oil. Some of the flour will come off in the cooking process, and every 5 cook cycles, the fryer automatically tells you to filter the oil. As you open the valve, the oil (and all the fallen-off bits of flour etc) goes through a filter, and a fine paper mesh. This is then pumped back into the machine and reheated, ready for the next cooking cycle.

The stuff from the filter is then put into plastic bags, chilled, and mixed with powdered gravy and water, then cooked in a microwave. As was said, it depends on how you want to make it - the more powder/brown gunk you put in, the thicker the gravy.

I also agree with the comments about the fries - I think they are pretty tasteless on their own, but they are okay if you get them fresh and dip them in mayonnaise.

Regarding which pieces of chicken you get - at our store, we WILL try to give you certain pieces if you ask for it, however it does say on the menu board that "pieces means chicken on the bone selected by the staff and NOT the customer" (or words to that effect).

Hope this helps? I have to go and clean out some fryers in 6 hours time - what joy!

Comment: A warning to blokes.. several months ago I started eating KFC alot, like every other day, because it taste so good, after a month or so I calmed down with it(getting too costly), anyway, maybe a month later I started getting this weird sensitive feeling in my nipples, basically it triggered the start of man-boobs, now i'm a slim guy btw. My nipples feel different and are somewhat erogenous, they never were like that before, I firmly beleive this is because KFC pump chickens with female growth hormones(despite what they say) I've got my nips for proof. I simply won't eat KFC anymore because of this.

Comment: Could also be the fact that eating that much saturated fat will eventually lay itself down somewhere in your body. In your case in your knockers. Eat a balanced diet, for God's sake, man!

The new way of doing it in the microwave is not a patch on the old pan on the stove way :( I am glad I departed from my 10 yrs of service before the microwaves were brought in...the beans are rubbish too now they are nuked with waves instead of gently gas heated :C
