KFC has stripped parcel service DHL of some U.K. food deliveries, reverting to its former partner after a supply-chain breakdown shut hundreds of restaurants that ran out of chicken.

The fast-food chain, owned by Louisville, Kentucky-based Yum! Brands Inc., handed some of the work back to former supplier Bidvest Logistics, part of South Africa’s Bid Corp., according to a statement Thursday.
