Then add lettuce, cut the cooked chicken into tenders and put 70 grams into the wrap. Fold and enjoy.
The original supercharged slider costs $2.95 and contains a chicken tender, lettuce and supercharged sauce wrapped in a warm flatbread. The product has 269 calories.
The KFC dish also comes in BBQ flavour and mayo pepper flavour.
The burgers cost $14 for 600 grams, but are almost impossible to find in Woolworths stores or online
‘If you guys are already on these fillets at Woolworths that taste exactly like KFC, then I’ve got another menu item fakeaway for you,’ the health coach said.
Bec previously said the burgers ‘taste just like KFC, but better,’ rating the product a 20/10.
Tegel Takeouts Louisiana style chicken burgers have become a cult favourite since being outed as a KFC chicken dupe, and the $14 New Zealand product is now so popular it’s completely out of stock online and in many Woolworths.
Bec’s followers were eager to try the dish but frustrated by the unavailability of the burger.
‘These burgers are hard to find! Sold out in the north of Melbourne,’ one woman said.
‘Patties are amazing. Everyone is onto them though and with them half price last week they’re very hard to find,’ a man commented.
‘Hubby and I have been trying for the last 4 weeks to get these at our local and they are sold out or out of stock,’ one frustrated woman said.
However the shoppers that have been able to find the burgers have been very impressed.
‘I had the burgers tonight! Tasted exactly like KFC,’ one woman said.
