Kentucky Fried Chicken Gluten Free Menu

KFC Gluten Free Menu

Before I go on about the KFC gluten free menu, I do have one major warning.

KFC is one of the scariest place for anyone with a gluten allergy or Celiacs disease to go to.

I mean seriously, the flour used on the chicken is airborne.

Step right in and your body is basically covered with gluten.

It’s a nightmare.

So if you’re allergic to gluten what so ever, DO NOT go into a KFC.

However, lets say you’re just on a gluten free diet and you have no gluten health concerns.

Then this fast food joint and blog post is just for you.

Okay, now that that’s clear, here is the KFC gluten free menu.

Unfortunately it’s not as plentiful as some of the other fast food restaurant choices.

    I agree KFC is not the place to go if you are allergic to gluten. It used to be one of our favorite fast food places to go before I was diagnosed.

    • Adam Bryan

      If I could get one gluten-free pass, I would definitely have to get some original fried chicken and potato wedges. It’s always nice for me to dream though :P

    What about the grilled chicken at KFC??

    • Donna

      According to the allergens list on the KFC website, the grilled chicken contains wheat. I can’t imagine what unless it is basted in something that would contain wheat.

      • Vickie

        If you are gluten sensitive or have celiacs, you should not even have the KFC grilled. Gluten has a tendency to float in the air. Since the grilled is prepared in the same kitchen and not separated, then it is dangerous. Even the sides should be left alone.
        Even entering KFC is dangerous for some of us.

        • Adam Bryan

          I couldn’t agree more Vickie. This is a Celiac no zone

        • emaegf

          Vickie they coat the grilled with spices that contain wheat flour. It helps hold the spices to the chicken. It’s not from flour flying it’s direct contact deliberately put on the chicken.

    • emaegf

      They use wheat flour in with the seasoning to help them hold to the chicken. That’s why the ingredients list wheat as an allergen.

    does anyone know of a receipe for something like the taste of kfc. boy do i miss kfc. my wife has tried to make it but no luck.

    • Chris

      Hey Dave,

      I found a decent recipe and you can play with it until you get something close to what you like. After dipping the chicken in a whisked egg or two (one egg will coat three or four pieces), I toss it in a mixture of rice, corn, or potato flour, adding basil, oregano, chili powder, ground cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Make sure your spices are all gluten-free. You can also use gluten-free bread crumbs for a crunchier version, and double dip the chicken after it’s been coated in the flour once, then re-toss it in the breading. Pan frying on medium-low heat in canola, peanut, or olive oil, turning occasionally as it browns is the quickest option (for thighs and legs about 25 minutes). You can also bake: preheat oven to 400F, then reduce to 325F; put pieces on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the internal temp reaches 170F (breasts will take longer).

      Internal temp is the best way to check for doneness.; with chicken you don’t want to flirt with undercooking, but overcooking makes it awful to eat.

      Good luck.

    I have eaten KFC chicken for many years. Then all of a sudden within 30 minutes of eating some KFC chicken for dinner my face started burning and swells like a balloon…..is this the reaction to gluten? I called the restaurant to try to see if they had done anything different and was told they had not. Kinda at a loss here, but now scared to eat out now.

    • emaegf

      Could be also could be a reaction to somethings else. Best to talk to your doctor about it.

    • Marcia Chante’

      Janet, that is a gluten reaction! I had eaten KFC for years also, that is until I had shoulder surgery. That’s when I found out the hard way I had become alergic to gluten. The reactions get worse each time. It’s not worth the pain & the sick feeling to keep testing it.

  • Lynne L

    …and whatever you do…DO NOT eat KFC fries…they use a flour-based shakey coating. Scary scary place for us!! Thanks Chris for the “faux” KFC recipe

    Are you sure about some of these KFC sauces? They most likely have vinegar, and that’s a gluten no no unless it’s real cider vinegar.
