RICHMOND, Va. — Richmond must have loved the KFC Cheetos Chicken Sandwichwhen the fast food chain tested the menu item at stores in Midlothian and Farmville earlier this year. The sandwich is now going nationwide.

KFC bills its chicken as “finger lickin’ good,” and you usually can’t eat Cheetos without doing some finger lickin’ as well.

That may be why the chicken chain has teamed up with the snack food brand to produce the KFC Cheetos Chicken Sandwich.

The sandwich features an extra-crispy KFC chicken filet with a “special Cheetos sauce” placed atop a layer of Cheetos and mayo.

You’ll find it at KFC locations starting July 1, but it’ll only be available for a limited, four-week run. KFC is hosting a special pop-up launch party with help from Chester Cheetah in New York City next week.
