Kentucky Fried Chicken has just announced that they will be launching a new signature dipping sauce that is sure to make KFC fans rejoice nationwide. This KFC Sauce is tangy and sweet with a bit of smokiness, and it's coming to KFC locations near you on October 12th.
Apparently, this signature sauce pairs perfectly with KFC’s Extra Crispy Tenders - but that certainly doesn’t mean you can’t have them with other items. I’d recommend dunking your fries in this sauce too. Andrea Zahumensky, Chief Marketing Officer of KFC, shared “When we set out to create a new signature dipping sauce, we went right to the experts – our customers – to find out what made a sauce best-in-class for dipping,” and “We went through 50 iterations, and their response to this recipe was overwhelming!”
This new signature KFC sauce along with a revamped core sauce lineup includes the Classic Ranch, Honey BBQ and Honey Mustard, in addition to KFC Hot Sauce. In honor of their new signature KFC Sauce, KFC’s Head Chef Chris Scott created three 'KFCharcuterie' board recipes you can try at home since we’re all living in quarantine these days.
Why not spice up a classic charcuterie board? Who says it’s just cold cuts, cheeses and crackers? No, no, no - a charcuterie board can be so much more. Zahumensky shared that charcuterie boards can also be “delicious comfort foods like Extra Crispy™ Tenders, Secret Recipe Fries and indulgent sauces” and "They are both fun to create and to eat, and I know around my house we are definitely in need of some creative ways to break up the monotony of meals at home."
