Billed as a plant-based ‘chicken’ burger, the new menu item is intended to rival the likes of the popular Greggs vegan sausage roll.

What’s it made of?

The new burger will be a replica of KFC’s classic chicken burger, with only a few modifications.

It will be made from Quorn, a hugely popular meat-alternative, and will be coated in the signature KFC blend of herbs and spices. The burger will come served on a bun with lettuce and vegan mayo.

The branches that are getting the opportunity to trial the new vegan burger will also be testing out a new vegetarian meal called the Southern Fritter Stacker. This will consist of a mix of vegetables in a crispy coating.

How much will it cost?

The Imposter Burger will cost £2.99 on its own and £3.49 with a drink.
