Finally! Fried Chicken in Red Velvet Cake Batter

San Francisco continues to confound us… On one hand the city is trying to take all the happy out of Happy Meals; on the other hand, it’s the same place you can now order up a plate of fried chicken coated in a red velvet cake batter.

The culinary curiosity is now available on the menu at San Francisco’s American Cupcake, where the general manager says “It has the classic red velvet flavor with a hint of vinegar, cocoa and sweetness.”

To make the dish, the brined chicken is first dunked in the red velvet batter before receiving a second coating of toasted red velvet crumbs. Once it’s been caked-up properly, it’s into the fryer and onto your plate.
