  • The Classic Chicken Wrap, a hand-breaded Extra Crispy Tender, crunchy pickles, and creamy mayo, wrapped up in a warm tortilla.
  • The Mac & Cheese Chicken Wrap tops an Extra Crispy Tender with rich and gooey perfection — KFC’s cheddar mac & cheese and sprinkled with a three-cheese blend.

“With our new wraps, our fans in Atlanta are bound to experience a burst of finger-lickin’ good flavor with every bite, whether it be from the crunch of our Extra Crispy Tenders, the bold heat from our spicy sauce, or the richness of our cheesy mac & cheese,” said Chef Chris Scott, Head Chef, KFC U.S., in a statement. “We’re excited to hear the feedback on these new flavor combinations from our Atlanta customers!”
