KENTUCKY, US - KFC has cooked up another free offer to promote its grilled chicken, only this time, it promises, without the unwanted side of rain checks.

Kentucky.com reports that the freebie is set for Monday, when more than 5,000 KFCs will give every US customer a free piece of grilled chicken.

This will be the third time in six months that the chain famous for fried chicken is offering a giveaway to promote its Kentucky Grilled Chicken that debuted nationally last spring.

KFC's latest freebie will be minus Oprah Winfrey's star power from a May giveaway and, KFC President Roger Eaton promises, without the snafus created when a free grilled chicken coupon on Winfrey's Web site overwhelmed the chain, with some stores running out of the meals.

This time, things will be orderly and efficient, Mr Eaton said.

The newest offer is identical to KFC's first grilled chicken giveaway — a one-day-only offer in April when KFC handed out more than 4 million pieces to launch the product. That chicken handout went smoothly, company officials said.
