Fried Chicken Macaroni Bowls

KFC is Serving Up Mac & Cheese Bowls Topped with Fried Chicken

— August 22, 2019 — Lifestyle
Two of America's most popular comfort foods are about to collide in the form of KFC's new Mac & Cheese Bowls. Set to debut on August 26th, the warm and gooey new bowls are perfect for upcoming fall weather.

KFC's new Mac & Cheese Bowls are the latest addition to the brand's Famous Bowls lineup. The Mac & Cheese Bowls start with KFC's creamy cheddar mac and cheese, which is then topped with crispy popcorn chicken and finished with a three-cheese blend. For extra flavor, customers can order a spiced-up version, which comes with a drizzle of KFC's Nashville Hot sauce.

With its new Mac & Cheese Bowls, KFC offers a clever new way to serve up its fried chicken.
