KFC Now Has Straight Up Fried Chicken Skin… in Indonesia

kfc

Those who enjoy nibbling on the crunchy skin part of their fried chicken are going to love the latest menu item from KFC Indonesia. 

After successfully introducing a similar offering in the Philippines, KFC is now selling fried chicken skin at select restaurants in Indonesia as part of its regular menu.

KFC Indonesia recently announced on its Instagram account that it launched the “Fried Chicken Skin” earlier this month. The announcement has been widely met with excitement among many netizens.

The item is currently being offered in six Jakarta branches — MT Haryono (KFC Gelael), Salemba, Cideng, Kemang, Kalimalang and Kelapa Gading — and local KFC fans are already demanding to expand its availability to other restaurants.

While the new product may sound unusual to many outsiders, it is worth noting that deep-fried chicken skin is a popular type of street food in Southeast Asia.

Huge shoutout to @rehuel_312 for always reminding me about this since it’s literally less than a mile away — how nice, right? As you all know I am a huge lover of chicken skin and I finally find a place where I can get chicken skin for ala-carte as they specialize on chicken skin dishes. I had their affordable “Nasi Kulit” for 15K (including serundeng, kol and sambal) and of course I had some extra chicken skins on the sides! They also have the ones with paru, fried chicken and cheese (mozzarella & cheddar) — I really love the crunchy texture without being way too hard to bite, also the fact that the portion is just fine! Totally recommend this: APPROVED! 🙌🏼❤️ | @nasikulitmalamminggu.acordion . #nasikulitmalamminggu #temanmalamminggu #kulitayam #chickenskin #crispy #foodporn #foodbloggerjkt #foodgasm #foodstagram #foodphotography #eeeeeats #jktfoodbang #jktfooddestination #delicious #tasty #crispy #zomatoid #qraved #gofoodjakarta #travelokaeats #jakartafood

Long before the popular chicken fast food brand decided to include it in their menu, food stalls in the Philippines and Indonesia have been serving fried chicken skin as snacks.

Prepared with chicken breading, the texture and crunchiness of the fried skin make a favorite among those who want to consume chicken the way one would do chips.

A bag stuffed with a dozen bite-sized pieces of crispy fried chicken skin in KFC costs around 13,636 rupiahs ($0.95).

In the Philippines, the item is called the new “Original Recipe Cracklings” which is sold for 35 Philippine pesos ($0.67) for the regular size and 58 pesos ($1.11) for the large version.
