The £36.99 Matchday Party Bucket was meant to contain 14 pieces of chicken, along with eight mini chicken fillets and eight hot wings – plus a large portion of popcorn chicken.
It was also meant to come with six portions of fries, a large tub of coleslaw, a large serving of gravy and a 1.5-litre bottle of Pepsi.
But after counting their chickens the un-clucky family found just three large pieces, along with a few burnt bits at the bottom of the bucket.
Fuming dad-of-two Steve Hunt, from Norwich, ordered the treat to celebrate landing a new job as a wellbeing coordinator.
After he contacted KFC and Deliveroo, both companies declined to give him a refund, insisting his festive order had been ‘fulfilled’.
The family also received a tiny bottle of orange juice which they hadn’t even ordered.
Mr Hunt said: ‘I had just got a new job and we were celebrating with a KFC. Me, my wife and the boys were starving and our mouths were watering at the prospect of a delivery from the Colonel.
Deliveroo has now apologised to the family, giving them a full refund as well as £50 in credit.
A spokesman said: ‘We’re sorry to hear that Mr Hunt didn’t have a great experience with his order.
‘We’ve now refunded Mr Hunt and apologise for the disappointment – and would like to wish him all the best in his new job.’
