KFC is bringing back the protein-packed Double Down burger for a limited time

Chicken chain KFC has announced that it will be bringing back the Double Down burger for a limited period.

The legendary dish has no bun – so it’s perfect for the protein-lovers out there.

KFC’s Double Down Burger features crispy bacon, cheese and barbecue sauce wedged between two “succulent Original Recipe chicken fillets”.

Phwoooar!

Basically, it’s a protein-style burger – no bun, no bread, just meat.

The tasty double chicken burger will return to KFC branches in the UK for the first time since its sell-out run in 2018.

Would you try KFC without the bun? Let us know in the comments section…

It will be on sale in KFC restaurants nationwide from October 5 to November 15.

Plus, you can order it on Uber Eats too.

KFC explained that in “a year of up and downs” they believed it’s “time to Double Down".

Catchy.

In a statement, the chicken chain said: “Goes without saying 2020 has been pretty fowl. We've all had a long, hard year… and it's not over yet.

"So over here at KFC HQ, we've been plotting and scheming – trying to find ways to bring a little joy to 2020 (it needs it).

“And we reckon if there's one thing the nation has been chirping out for, it's the return of a legendary fried chicken classic.

"Enter KFC's Double Down – the iconic bunless burger of your dreams. "

The brand added: “For those in the back, it features crispy bacon, melted cheese and barbeque sauce, all sandwiched between two succulent Original Recipe chicken fillets."

If you just want a Double Down burger you’ll be set back £4.99.

So, it makes sense to get it in a meal with fries and a drink for £5.99.

Or, you can get the Double Down box meal with fries, a drink, and an extra piece of Original Recipe chicken (because why not?) for £7.49.

Plus, KFC is bringing back their WOW box from next week – so if your pal prefers their chicken in a bun they’ll be pleased too.

The box contains a fillet burger, piece of chicken and a regular fries for just £3.49.

Both the Double Down and the WOW box are only available from Monday 5 October until Sunday November 15.

So hurry if you want to try them!
