KFC is starting a test of a vegan “fried chicken” menu item.

The trial will take place in Atlanta and feature a new offering created with Beyond Meat.

Customers can pick from a “nugget” with a side of dipping sauce or “wing” format tossed in sauce.

Sauce choices include buffalo, Nashville hot and honey barbecue.

KFC is marketing the new menu item as a “Kentucky Fried Miracle.”
