IF you were planning a nice healthy dinner tonight, KFC's new Popcorn Chicken deal might scupper all that.

From this week, the fast food chain is offering a bucket of 80 chicken bites for £5,99 - that's 7.5p each. 

The deal was previously trialled in Scotland before being brought to England for a limited time, according to website latestdeals.co.uk

Before the deal was launched, 30 pieces of Popcorn Chicken would usually cost £4.29.

KFC confirmed the deal on its Twitter account on Monday. 

The Colonel's Twitter account later added: 

"Just to confirm: you don't need the app to claim the offer.

"Just walk into your local restaurant and ask for the Popcorn Bucket because we're nice like that."
