What you’ll be saying in a week or so: I think I ate the bones!

Sure, Kentucky Fried Chicken has boneless chicken, and has had for a while now.

However, the latest offering from the ubiquitous fried chicken is its original recipe chicken, sans skin and bones.

The launch will take place April 14, with a two piece (one white, one dark) combo meal, with a side, biscuit and a drink, being offered for $4.99.

A 10-piece mixed bucket (four pieces of boneless and six pieces original recipe on the bone) will go for $14.99.

Here are two of the ads:
