Kenny Rogers New "Honey" for The Christmas Season

Kenny Rogers Roasters Roasted Honey Chicken
 My entire family and I had been avid diners of Kenny Rogers Roasters ever since it reached the Philippine shores back in the late 90’s. In fact, we somehow felt sad when its SM Cubao branch had to close down because it meant we had to look for another place to dine and hangout. But our cravings for its mouth-watering and deliciously good roasted chicken haven’t stopped. So each time we’d want to eat our fave classic roast as well as their variety of side dishes, we don’t really mind driving all the way to their Katipunan, Trinoma and Cainta branches, just so we could whet our appetites.

Known for consistently innovating and creating ways to delight their loyal customers, Kenny Rogers Roasters introduces not just one but five new products that will surely create a memorable dining experience for everyone—a testament to Kenny’s brand promise to provide not only healthy but tasty food choices.
I guess I was fortunate enough to be one of the first few who were able to taste Kenny’s Honey Roast Chicken—juicy and perfectly roasted chicken infused with honey and maple. This new chicken flavor is served with Kenny’s own honey-garlic sauce and definitely goes well with any of their signature side dishes.

We were lucky to have been part of this event. 

The new honey chicken can be ordered ala carte at only P399 for a whole chicken. It can also be enjoyed with Kenny’s Solo Plates, Combo Meals and Group Meals.
As a food blogger, I’ve had this habit called “Zen eating”—enjoying the food’s aroma first before slowly indulging in it. The minute it had arrived on our table, I thought I could smell Christmas already. And I swear I must’ve gone to heaven upon taking a spoonful of Kenny’s Honey Roast. It tasted just like ham—the ones served during Noche Buena. I bet it will be the star of the dining table for the holiday’s feast. My verdict: Kenny’s Honey Roast is so tender, juicy and tasty even without the sauce. But here’s what surprised me the most: Usually, if you tend to marinate or put flavors into chicken, the least to absorb the taste would have to be the breast part. But alas, I don’t know what they’ve done with Kenny’s Honey Roast because every part of the chicken is really bursting with flavor! 

Garlic Parmesan Green Beans is crunchy and half-cooked.

Sour Cream and Chives Potatoes was a hit among bloggers!
 “With the introduction of the Honey Roast Chicken we are raising the bar in healthy eating. It’s our commitment to provide valued guests with smart and unique offers that are truly delicious but not heavy on the budget,” says Meggie Bolinao-Jose, Kenny Rogers’ Marketing Director.
Then, there were the four new hot side dishes that perfectly goes well with any of Kenny’s roasted chicken flavors—Garlic Parmesan Green beans, Sour Cream and Chives Potatoes, Turnip Salad and Aglio Olio.
Garlic Parmesan Green Beans is steamed fresh green beans tossed in garlic butter sauce and sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese.  My verdict: The green beans have a really nice bright green color, and are probably half-cooked because upon first bite, I knew it was a bit crunchy.
The Sour Cream and Chives Potatoes are baked marble potatoes with skin on and coated in sour cream and chives butter mix. This is actually one of my favorites. It had me thinking of my childhood days munching on Pringles’ Sour Cream variant. It tasted so good that most bloggers that night even asked for some more. I won’t be surprised if this will become one of Kenny Rogers Roasters bestselling side dishes. This will compete with the more popular corn and carrots side dish.
Turnip Salad-healthy and refreshing!
Perfect for Noche Buena this holiday season.

I took photos of the honey chicken in different angles, and each turn I do, I can't help but salivate over its enticing aroma and flavor that is truly mouth-watering.

Aglio Olio is a dish in itself, if you ask me, it can also be a complete meal. It is cooked al dente pasta with an olive oil based sauce, with lots of garlic bits and chopped black olives lending its unique taste. Unlike other Aglio Olio pasta I’ve eaten before, this one isn’t too dry yet not too oily—just right. I wouldn’t recommend this to order during a date with your special someone because of its strong garlic taste and flavors though, but I’d say you must order this dish when you couldn’t care less what your breath will be like after emptying your plate. Who cares about bad garlic breath when you’ve just had one delicious meal of Aglio Olio? 

Tasty and healthy Aglio Olio

This was how blogger Dennis Angulo of enjoyed his chicken!

Turnip Salad is best for those who watch their diet.

Last on the latest addition to Kenny Rogers Roasters’ variety of side dishes is the Turnip Salad—a light salad made with crunchy turnip strips, shredded carrots and red cabbage, and thinly sliced cucumber tossed in a sweet and tart mango dressing. It is very light and refreshing, perfect for those who are in a diet. And it complements Kenny Rogers Roasters’ roasted Honey chicken.
By the way, you guys had to hurry because Kenny’s Honey Roast will only be available for a limited time only. Kenny’s new side dishes can be ordered ala carte in regular or large sizes, or matched with your favorite Solo, Grilled or Healthy Plates and Group meals.

We've never had enough of this yummy treat!

Goes well with any fave Kenny chicken with corn muffin.
