What’s in the KFC Festive Chicken Sandwich?

The KFC Festive Chicken Sandwich features KFC’s signature buttermilk-marinated chicken fillet, savoury stuffing, cranberry sauce, buttery garlic oil and plant-based mayo — all sandwiched between a soft bun.

What does the KFC Festive Chicken Sandwich taste like?

Essentially, the sandwich tastes exactly how you imagine it would: delicious. Fried chicken, stuffing and cranberry sauce are all supremely tastey in their own right, and the flavours really work well together in this creation. It’s nothing you haven’t tasted before, but if you’re a fan of festive flavours, it’s definitely still worth trying.

KFC really doesn’t skimp on the stuffing or cranberry sauce in this sandwich, which we appreciated, but we did find it a bit bread-y since the bun is quite fluffy and the stuffing is also made up of bread. To balance it out, we wish KFC had added a pop of fresh crunch in there, (we’d recommend lettuce or even coleslaw), because while the chicken does offer a bit of crispy crunchiness, overall the sandwich is quite soft and could use some more texture.
