The smallest size Kentucky Fried Chicken chicken bucket as of October 2015 contains eight pieces of chicken, which KFC says is enough for four people. For hearty appetites, the eight-piece bucket can still provide four pieces to each of two people. Larger sizes are the 12-piece and the 16-piece buckets.
Chicken bucket meals come with a biscuit for each serving. The eight-piece size also has two large sides; the 12-piece size comes with three large sides; and the 16-piece bucket has four large sides.
KFC chicken is pressure-fried and seasoned with 11 herbs and spices from founder Harland Sanders' original roadside recipe.
