KFC is adding its third fried chicken flavor to the menu--Smoky Chipotle Crispy. The new flavor joins Colonel Sanders' Original Recipe as well as the Extra Crispy flavor.

"We've worked tirelessly to develop this new flavor," says James O'Reilly, chief marketing officer for KFC. “We don't take fried chicken flavor introductions lightly at KFC, and we took our time to painstakingly perfect this new recipe.”

While Original Recipe and Extra Crispy continue to have their dedicated fans, KFC's newest kitchen creation is aimed at consumers who like to experience new flavors and savor the taste. "The new recipe receives its signature flavor from a secret recipe of slow-smoked chipotle peppers and other spices," says Doug Hasselo, Chief Food Innovation Officer at KFC.

KFC's new Smoky Chipotle Crispy chicken is currently available in a bucket or as a plated meal for a limited time only.
