Federal Donuts vs Shake Shack: Fried Chicken Sandwich Throwdown

Forget the burger wars. It's time for a chicken fight between Federal Donuts and Shake Shack with both juggernauts releasing their own version of a fried chicken sandwich.

The chicken gods from FedNuts serve a double-fried boneless breast with buttermilk ranch seasoning, spicy sauce, American cheese and pickles on a Martin's potato roll. Shake Shack's boneless, spicy breaded Chick'n Shack comes with herb mayo and dill pickles on a potato roll.

Shake Shack took the crown by a hair with a slightly crispier and spicier breading that delivers a better overall flavor profile. The buttermilk ranch coating at FedNuts was lost in the mix so we'd like to see a version using the unique seasoning of their popular Za'atar fried chicken. That tweak could enable FedNuts to steal the crown away. 

Both are worthy editions to your sandwich hunting list. What are you waiting for? Go get one. Or both!
