Fried Chicken Doughnuts Are Now a Thing at This Doughnut Spot

Fried Chicken Doughnuts Are Now a Thing at This Doughnut Spot

Virginia-based doughnut chain Sugar Shack has created a Korean fried chicken doughnut that has heads spinning

Well, we’ve already had maple bacon doughnuts, so this is the new next best thing.

We’ve seen plenty of strangely flavored gourmet doughnuts but this one just might be the icing on the dough. Sugar Shack Donuts, a small doughnut chain based in Virginia, has created a Korean fried chicken doughnut to its Arlington location.

The bizarre creation comes in two varieties, according to Arlington Now: The spicy option has a sriracha maple glaze with spicy chicken. The milder version has a maple glaze with honey chicken on the top.

You likely won’t see these quirky chicken-topped doughnuts elsewhere: They are a collaboration with the nearby Dak! Chicken.

“We have sold quite a few,” Sugar Shack employee Andy Barry told Arlington Now. “We’ve definitely had people come in just for the donuts.”

The doughnuts will be offered at the Arlington Sugar Shack on the last Thursday of every month.


Hit the spot with Donal Skehan's quick-fix craving busters

Quick-fix cravings have been seeing us through this week. It’s all about the type of food that instantly hits the spot, with big flavour and minimal fuss, that has kept us going through this Covid world. Little treat suppers feel like the pick-me-up at the end of a long week that’s just what the doctor ordered.

Gutsy chilli flake-laden tomato sauce splodged through perfectly al dente bucatini with salty cubes of pancetta chicken crisped in the oven, then bathed in a buttery buffalo and cayenne spiced sauce, served with oven roast chips or a filthy slice of melt-in-your-hands chocolate biscuit cake — the type of recipes that deliver instant gratification!

A lot of my personal food cravings come from our time living in Los Angeles, where every weekend in those heady free-wheeling pre-baby days, we would hunt down the latest restaurant or cafe opening to try the newest food offerings.

Almost every new joint that opened had its take on the fried chicken sandwich, and most could be judged based on just how good its version was. A make-at-home version is highly rewarding most parts can be made in advance, leaving you an assembly job if you are somewhat organised. The results are crispy, battered chicken served in a soft pillowy bun with some crunchy coleslaw — a true Saturday night winner.

While the tomato-laden bucatini I mentioned is a regular in our house, a new contender is the slightly controversial Prawn Pil Pil Pasta. Sweet, plump prawns doused in garlic and chilli oil seem like the perfect thing to toss freshly cooked linguine through, and a shame to waste solely on toasted sourdough bread slices — though I wouldn’t be opposed to doubling down on the carbs to soak up all that deliciousness. Minimal effort and maximum comfort.

If a speedy, sweet hit is the order of the day, the 10-Minute Buttermilk Vanilla Donuts with spiced caramel use minimal kitchen cupboard ingredients to leave you with hot, doughy, sugar-coated joy. They are somewhere between a Mexican churro and donut holes, making them the perfect vessel to dip in a slightly spiced caramel sauce, and they can be made in minutes.
