Fast-food giant KFC is opening its kitchens to members of the public this month, with over 300 of its restaurants inviting in fans who want to see the chicken frying process for themselves.

KFC’s Open Kitchen event takes place on Saturday 30 March, allowing chicken connoisseurs behind-the-scenes access to get a hands on experience for just £5.

Once you’ve secured your place, you’ll be able to witness first hand just how KFC’s famous Original Recipe chicken is made.

Can you keep up?

If you get a ticket, you won’t just be standing around watching, you’ll be getting stuck in yourself – hand-breading chicken, frying it up and then building your own burger.

You’ll also be given a KFC hat and apron to make sure you look the part, and once you’re finished producing your poultry paradise, it’ll be served to you with fries, some Original Recipe chicken, and a side and drink of your choice.

You’re essentially paying to work in a branch of KFC for an afternoon – a shrewd business move – although the £5 fee does go to the KFC Foundation, which supports local charities working with developing and nurturing young people.

You’ll need a ticket to take part, which are available from SeeTickets on a first-come, first-served basis. At the time of writing, many branches’ tickets have already sold out.

Locations for KFC’s Open Kitchen event include multiple outlets in Wales, Ireland, London, the Midlands, Scotland, and the North and South of England. A full list of participating stores can be found here.

“We want to welcome everyone in to give them the chance to see what makes it so finger lickin’ good and invite them to try keeping pace with our amazing team members,” said Rob Swain, chief operations officer at KFC UK and Ireland.

“We can’t wait to show the nation how it’s done.”
