Even if this was gluten free I would never in a million years consider going into a KFC to get this. The entire basis of the menu is fried chicken! I wouldn't trust that there wouldn't be cross contamination.

But what restaurant (chain) out there doesn't have flour kicking around? What restaurant doesn't serve fried chicken fingers? What fast food restaurant doesn't base their entire menu on sandwiches? What restaurant doesn't serve bread? Many here eat at Wendy's but I believe they have a bakery truck delivering buns everyday. The guy carts them thorough the backdoor right past half of their food supplies. And then the servers store them in steam bins right over the grills.

More to the point: why would you put flour on grilled chicken? Before being diagnosed with celiac I never would have dusted my chicken with flour prior to grilling?

To the extent that KFC does? I don't think there are many restaurants out there (with the possible exception of bakeries) which as flour-laden as KFC. Even their mashed potatoes have flour in them. I wouldn't even buy a fountain drink from KFC.

Sure, lots of restaurants have flour around, and there's always a risk of cc. My own kitchen isn't even entirely gluten-free, and I had to chew out my son the other day for getting bread crumbs on the block of cheese. But I think with KFC, you have guaranteed cc with anything there.

Still, flour on the grilled chicken... it just goes to show that we have to be diligent and never assume that something doesn't have flour in it just because we haven't seen it done that way before.

gluten-free since mid-2007.
Symptoms: "IBS," chronic fatigue, chronic pain. 

Celiac is a family affair for us; my mom, sister, and one of my sons are gluten free. At least it makes holiday gatherings easier.

Geez, this is such a bummer! I was thinking "Oooooh, maybe I could try it and then I could have another restaurant to eat with my friends..."

Good thing I checked the GFF before I ate! :(

Thanks Elizabeth. This was pretty much my point.

Yes, I realize there is the possibility for cc in any restaurant unless it is specifically a dedicated gluten free restaurant; and yes that includes my own kitchen as well, since my husband is not gluten free; but I think KFC has a much higher risk of cross contamination than say, Wendy's.

I can't even imagine why anyone with celiac would attempt to get a safe meal in a fast food restaurant who's entire menu is dedicated to fried food.

Such is the case with chicken breasts in most restaurants. We only order chicken if it is made from scratch.

Yeah. I was dumb; we were in the middle of nowhere with my in laws, stopped at KFC and what with the three kids we were ordering for and trying to get food for everyone, I just went ahead and had the grilled chicken.

I didn't seem to have any gluten issues. And it tasted great.

So without checking the website, I had some again on Tuesday for my birthday. And leftovers yesterday.

I am paying for it today, I think...of course, we have a stomach bug going around, so it's hard to say what exactly is causing my symptoms. But i feel like such an IDIOT. :angry:

To be fair, my mashed potatoes have flour in them, too... :lol:

I had never heard of such, but I saw it on the Food Network. Make a sauce (add cheese if you want) and pour over the potatoes and mash them. I'll never make mashed potatoes the old way again... :ph34r:

Certainly made me more aware of the places that flour/thickener is used.
