Just when everyone thought the chicken sandwich wars were ending, KFC decided to start things back up. The fast food chain announced this week that their viral fried-chicken-and-doughnut sandwich will be added to menus nationwide. The sandwich will be available through March 16th.

Back in September of 2019, KFC made headlines with their testing of a new menu item; a fried chicken sandwich, with doughnuts replacing the buns. While the internet was torn initially, those that have tried it have come away impressed. “Chicken & Donuts is the newest fried chicken trend we're bringing to all of America. It's a finger lickin' good dish filled with glaze and glory,” said Andrea Zahumensky, the chief marketing officer at KFC US.

The new menu item comes in two forms; sandwich or basket. The basket option is a deconstructed version of the sandwich, with boneless or bone-in chicken and one or two doughnuts. While the sandwich will only be available for a limited time, fans are hoping this one doesn’t come with hour long waits like the viral Popeyes’ chicken sandwich.
