KFC = Salt City

Just went to a potluck and had a piece of KFC chicken for the first time in 25+ years. The salt load was incredible! There was no chicken taste, no breading taste, just a huge salt impact. Who can stand to eat this crap?
That's my finding with McDonalds' burgers - Loaded with salt. Who eats that crap?
If you want to cut down on the salt - stay with the fries - oddly, they have a much lower salt content (not that their fries are worthy).
I never recalled KFC being over salty, however, i'm from Canada, so that made me look.
From US KFC nutritional values, a piece of original chicken breast contains 1080mg of sodium, while in Canada, that same piece of chicken only contains 520mg of sodium (although the portion size is a tad smaller in canada - 163 US vs. 141 Canada)
almost double the sodium in the US recipe than it is in Canada!
