KFC Chicken Littles Recipe is a Copycat recipe for one of the most famous sandwiches in the world. To get an idea of how popular KFC Chicken Littles are is the fact that there is actually a Facebook petition page you can find here.

The chicken little is meant to be an excellent soft roll instead of a seeded slider bun. It was also a chicken patty, reminiscent of a school restaurant lunch. And it had a pretty decent quantity of mayonnaise, no lettuce.

This new sandwich has been trashed by the real lovers of the original chicken little, and we are all asking the question, why can’t they merely bring back the original?

So, in the meantime, I actually have tried to copy this sandwich in my kitchen and try and satisfy my cravings for this old-fashioned love. It’s not precisely just like the classic, and I did add pickles cause I do love the mix it offers the sandwich; however, trust me, this can be much better than the new wannabe KFC “chicken little.”

How to make KFC Chicken Littles as the Original :

  • Buy the softest dinner rolls you can find in your bakery or your supermarket.
  • Toast the bun slightly on the stove first.
  • Don’t skimp on the mayonnaise; it needs a decent lather.
  • You need to flash-fry the chicken before you bake it. It needs an additional soft crunch instead of an extra crisp coating.
  • Pickles are optional, chose according to your liking.

If you wish to make this sandwich even more like the classic, you can purchase chicken patties in the frozen section of your supermarket.
