KFC's BBQ Pulled Chicken sandwich.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – KFC is bringing a bit of the South to Great Britain.

The chain, a unit of Yum! Brands, Inc., has launched a new line of BBQ Pulled Chicken sandwiches. The sandwich features pulled chicken atop two mini chicken filets on a bed of paprika slaw. The sandwich is served on a brioche bun. The line includes a Pulled Chicken Ultimate Burger Meal; Pulled Chicken Twister Meal and a Pulled Chicken Lil' Wrap.

The sandwich also has fewer calories due to a switch to rapeseed oil from palm oil, according to the chain. The result was a 25 percent reduction in saturated fat in the KFC's Original Recipe chicken.
