Worldwide chain family restaurant Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is preparing to make a big appearance to a vegan chicken burger in the United Kingdom.
BBC columnist Nisha Katon was the first to attempt it.“Oh my heaven! On a dream job today! while she was recording for the BBC One Show with access to the genuine KFC central kitchen,”
Katona tweeted. “Also, I was the first member of the public to taste the new vegan chicken burger. This to me is actually living the dream.”

Last year, KFC prodded that it was creating vegan meat options which its Innovation Director Jack Hinchcliffe guaranteed would not be a choice “that lets down vegans.”
“Veganism as a trend has really blown up. We’re currently in the process of working on both vegetarian and vegan options in the innovation kitchen here in our head office,” KFC Innovation Director Jack Hinchcliffe told The Telegraph.
While the chain is as yet building up its chicken burger for the UK, KFC Vietnam has served a vegan chicken sandwich since 2018.
