KFC’s free chicken bucket promotion is NOW on — there’s just one thing you have to do.

If you love fried chicken and look forward to a finger lickin’ KFC on the weekend then this offer might be right up your street. The fast food chain is giving away free items off its menu but there’s just one little catch.

Chicken lovers will have to download the KFC app to be eligible. There will also be a bunch of freebies up for grabs each day. If it’s your turn to sort out the tea and you really can’t be bothered, or you just really want some fried chicken, then all you need to do is download the free KFC app and sign up.

You will be rewarded with a free six-piece chicken bucket if you order £10 worth of food, result.

You only get one free bucket with this promotion and the offer runs until March 12th, so use it wisely! Save it until you’re struggling until pay day, dying of a hangover or for when it’s your turn to make dinner.

All you need to claim the bucket of goodness is the app and the QR code. Whether you order directly at a counter, kiosk or drive through, you just need to open the app and present the QR code to be scanned.

But what if you want a delivery I hear you say? Well, the good news is, you can also claim the free bucket of fried goodies if you order your delivery directly through the app. The app allows you to check-in at a restaurant and get your free treat.

The move follows a host of other operators in the capital choosing to open new sites in Manchester.
