Donuts are coming to an unexpected restaurant menu for a limited time!
KFC is adding Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts to its menus for a limited time after a test run of this combination proved to be a hot concept in 2019. Beginning February 24th, customers will be able to order a pairing of KFC’s world-famous Extra Crispy fried chicken coupled with a warm, fresh, glazed-to-order donut.
Chicken and donuts are just the latest trend in fried chicken to appear on KFC’s menu. The chain has experienced past success with the debut of its Nashville Hot Chicken in 2016 and Chicken & Waffles in 2018. Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer of KFC, said,
“Chicken & Donuts is the newest fried chicken trend we’re bringing to all of America, but not just any donut would do. Only a donut that’s glazed-to-order and served piping hot every single time can stand next to our hand-breaded fried chicken. It’s a finger-lickin’ good dish filled with glaze and glory.”
KFC fans will be able to experience this sweet and savory combination in a variety of options ranging in price from $5.49 to $7.99. The Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts Basket meal will feature chicken on the bone or Extra Crispy chicken tenders paired with one donut or two. There will also be a sandwich made with an Extra Crispy chicken filet between two glazed donuts. Guests will also be able to add a donut to any meal for an additional cost.
Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts will be available nationwide at participating restaurants from February 24th through March 16th, or for as long as supplies last.
