KFC Chicken & Waffles Return Nationwide With New ‘Big Basket’ Option

KFC’s debut of Chicken & Waffles at the end of 2018 was one of their most successful limited-time offerings of all time. Some restaurants ran out in as little as two weeks due the high demand.

With that in mind, the fried chicken empire chose to make this item their fastest ever to return back to stores nationwide. Their relaunch, happening just four months after the initial release, is literally bigger than before.

In this limited-time drop of the Chicken & Waffles, KFC chose to bring a larger size of their platter to the table. This new offering, called the Big Basket, consists of two Belgian-style liege waffles and your choice of four tenders, three pieces of dark meat, or two pieces of white meat. It’ll be sold for $7.99.

The other options from last time, including the smaller platter variation and the Chicken & Waffles sandwich, will also be back on the menu. A standard basket consists of one waffle and any of the above chicken piece offerings (just with one less piece each), while the sandwich uses two waffles as the “buns.”

All of these Chicken & Waffles offerings will be available from March 23rd until either April 29th or stores sell out, whichever comes first.

KFC Is Launching Fried Chicken And Waffles Nationwide

KFC was spotted testing fried chicken and waffles earlier this year, building excitement that the chain might finally start selling the legendary dish. We now have confirmation that KFC’s version of the classic combo is about to launch nationwide, November 12, in both platter and sandwich form.

KFC’s iteration of chicken and waffles will use their Extra Crispy Chicken, and swap out the traditional buttermilk waffle for sweet Belgian Liege-style waffles, made with a yeast-raised dough and pearl sugar to create the sweet, crunchy exterior.

Customers will have the choice between whole pieces or tenders to pair with the waffles, and the entire dish comes with a side of Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup.

Prices start at $5.49 and change based on what chicken you choose.

KFC also has a second version of chicken and waffles on its menu in the form of a sandwich. Two of the liege-style waffles act as the bread, sandwiching a Hot Honey-sauced chicken breast. The sandwich will be sold for $5.99.

Both iterations that KFC is debuting of the iconic duo will be available on the menu through the end of the year.
