It’s easy to see why the company is so important: even though it sells only chicken fast food, their secret is the variety of products they present to the public.
The classics are many and always available in the classic or soulfire version: you have the Just Chicken Licken chicken pieces, that is served from singles to family barrels of 21, and also Special Specials, the classic Chicken Licken menus, composed of hot wings or pieces, salad, fries and a beverage to go.

There are other smaller hamburgers, the Slyders, sold at a much lower price and the same quality, suitable for a snack or for children, and that are served single or up to 8 in a pack, and finally there are also the Easy Bucks menus, consisting of snack menus with pieces, wings or Slyders that go with fries and dressings.
