... oven-grilled chicken! :D

The fast food chain, known for its signature fried chicken, decided that it was finally time to sell "healthier" options to their customers.

After a year of researching and consumer taste testing the recipe to perfection, KFC launched its grilled whole quarter leg chicken, said to be the first of its kind in Singapore's fast food restaurants.

The chicken is coated in paprika chilli, garlic, onion, and herbs and oven-grilled to "light crisped golden-brown deliciousness"

To hammer in the healthy factor, the company reportedly boasts that the chicken amounts to 360 calories per leg.

According to the website, KFC's Signature Grilled Chicken is priced between SGD6.20 (RM18.50) to SGD9.95 (RM29.69) depending on the meal you pick.

Take note that if you're heading to Singapore, the grilled chicken is available at all outlets except KFC Changi Airport Terminal 1, Jurong West Street 51, KidZania, Singapore Zoo, and Toa Payoh Lorong 1. 

Since its launch, there seems to have been quite a bit of excitement from netizens over the dish

All that aside, the chicken still does look pretty damn good
