KFC takes a grilling

First, Kentucky Fried Chicken gave up the word, "Fried" by changing its name to KFC. A nod to the healthy-eating sensibilities of prospective customers. Now, in a further step toward wholesomeness, KFC has added grilled chicken to its offerings. Can the name change to "KGC" be far behind? Naah, it sounds too much like the Russian CIA.

The new bucketful is surprisingly good, say the taste-testers at Epicurious. They compared grilled chicken from several purveyors and found that KFC's version rules the roost.

Great. But I wonder: would the Colonel approve?
