In more good news, the fried chicken chain is also bringing back another popular menu item, the Mac & Cheese Bowls

for a limited time starting on April 3. Fans can also look forward to a limited-time return of KFC's Nashville Hot sauce for the spicy version of the Mac & Cheese

KFC first debuted the popular bowls in 2019, and then encored them about three years later in 2022.

The Mac & Cheese Bowls will sell for a suggested price of $5, while the new nuggets will start at a suggested price of $3.49.
