KFC HITS A HIGH NOTE BY PAIRING TWO CLASSICS: CHUNKY CHICKEN POT PIE AND THE ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS

One lucky customer will win a trip for two to Las Vegas for the Academy of Country Music Awards Show and a special performance by Luke Bryan at an invitation-only event.

LOUISVILLE, KY — With winter in full swing, nothing warms up a cold day like KFC’s Chunky Chicken Pot Pie. Featuring tender pieces of KFC's world-famous chicken, the Chunky Chicken Pot Pie is a perfect combination of diced potatoes, green peas and carrots in a savory home-style sauce and topped with a flaky, buttery crust. This is a classic dish worth rediscovering again and again.

“We know that people love classic, home-style meals, but they don’t always have time to make them – and then they have difficulty finding one that is made quickly and worth eating,” said Jason Marker, Chief Marketing Officer for KFC US. “Freshly baked to golden perfection throughout the day, the Chunky Chicken Pot Pie is quick comfort food at its best.”

KFC’s Chunky Chicken Pot Pie is available for just $3.99. Also available is the KFC Bucket & Bites Meal, which includes eight pieces of chicken, 10 Original Recipe® Bites, two large sides and four biscuits for just $19.99 plus tax. (Both promotions available for a limited time at participating restaurants).

According to ThePostGame.com, over 50 million consumers are watching at home instead of going to games. As the Official Sponsor of Couchgating, KFC will coach these game watchers on how to become the ultimate "couchgaters" through a dedicated section on its Facebook page (www.facebook.com/KFC) and a partnership with ThePostGame.com, the official digital magazine for Yahoo! Sports, to create custom content.
