EARLY birds can ditch their cereal for chicken as KFC launch their new breakfast menu at Braehead and Linwood branches.

Poultry-based offerings are to be rolled out on Monday, October 10 in restaurants across the UK.

This early morning menu is available every day from 6am to 10.30am.

On offer is the Chicken AM costing £2.49 or £3.49 as a meal.

The meal option includes a hash brown and a cup of coffee.

Expect a piece of original recipe chicken, smoked bacon and cheese encased in a floured bun.

Also featured on the menu is a bacon roll or a bacon and egg roll.

The new Chicken AM from KFC hopes to kick start a taste for chicken for breakfast in the UK.

Chicken breakfasts are already popular in Mexico, Chilaquiles with pulled chicken being a favourite breakfast option.

Meanwhile in Indonesia, chicken porridge is a morning must-have.

KFC is also a popular breakfast choice in South Africa, China and Singapore among others.

Jack Hinchliffe, Head of Innovation at KFC UK & Ireland said: "Following a successful start in Beaconsfield, we are excited to begin rolling out our breakfast menu across the UK.

"Chicken for breakfast might feel like a novelty, but there’s plenty of evidence it can become a breakfast choice here too.

"The Chicken AM is a delicious way to start the day and we are sure KFC fans will love it."
