My companion thought the boneless chicken pieces were too salty and questioned the quality of the de-boned chicken, and I thought that the breading was too thick, making the chicken seem like dry versions of the double-breaded Extra Crispy variety.

Worst of all, when comparing the taste with their boned versions, the boneless chicken was not as juicy and, thus, not finger-lickin' good. So, KFC, the moral of the story is: Throw me a bone here. —
