"We gear the shifts up so we make sure we've got the staffing, we make sure we've got the chicken," said KFC President Roger Eaton to the Associated Press.

KFC executives hope the offer to promote Kentucky Grilled Chicken, which first debuted in April, will boost sales among health conscious consumers.
