Coming Soon to KFC Japan: Ketchup-Flavored Rice Patty Sandwiched Between Chicken Fillets-For-Buns

Fast Food

Would you like fries (or onion rings or chicken tenders) with that?



This week on February 7, KFC Japan is granting you the joy of eating boneless fried chicken and ketchup-flavored rice without utensils by releasing the Kentucky Chicken Rice, a bun-less sandwich with a patty of ketchup rice, a slice of cheddar cheese, tomato sauce, and special mayonnaise stuffed between two fried chicken fillets. The sandwich clocks in at 585 calories and will set you back ¥450 (about $4.85).

In 2010, KFC released a similarly bun-less sandwich, the KFC Double Down made with two slices of cheese (Monterey and Pepper Jack), two slices of bacon, and "Colonel's Sauce" between two fried or grilled chicken fillets.

If any Serious Eaters in Japan try this thing, let us know how it is.
