This weekend, for the blink of an eye, the menu at Federal Donuts will get a brand new addition.
Whereas limited time specials are usually donut-related at the Philly-based shop that has concocted such notable treats as the Irish Potato doughnut and the Iggle doughnut, this time the menu will get a boost with a very festive, very summery new sandwich: the barbecue fried chicken sandwich.
What separates the sandwich from others is the barbecue flavor, which is made with a coffee-barbecue sauce using Federal Donuts' own java blend. The meal also comes with slaw and cheddar cheese on a potato roll.
The window for snagging the new dish is extremely limited. Store locations in Center City, University City, South Philly, and North Philly, the Fairmount Whole Foods, and Citizens Bank Park will begin selling them Friday, July 6.
The sandwich will only be available through Sunday, July 8.
Tomorrow is NATIONAL FRIED CHICKEN DAY and we’re rollin’ out a 🆕 sandwich for a 💥limited time only!💥 The BBQ FRIED CHICKEN SANDWICH features a boneless fried chicken breast, BBQ sauce, summer slaw, and cheddar cheese on a Martin’s potato roll! Come in tomorrow thru Sunday to help us celebrate 🎉🍗❣️ 🇺🇸#MakeItAFederalHoliday #NationalFriedChickenDay

Federal Donuts rolled out its only other fried chicken sammie a few years ago, first billed as a seasonal option at Spruce Street Harbor before becoming available across all locations throughout the year.
Perhaps that also shall be the fate of this new barbecue chicken sandwich? Fingers crossed.
