Today is a glorious day for fried chicken news. First, Seasonal Pantry announced a crispy bird pop-up for August, and now Astro says on Thursday it will release an Old Bay-doughnut fried-chicken sandwich.

The platform for this ingenious mashup is a savory doughnut with Old Bay spice baked into the rounds and dusted on top. Stuffed inside is a fried-chicken breast, local lettuce and tomato, and your choice of dressing: barbecue, honey mustard, ranch, blue cheese, or Sriracha-buffalo (we may ask for the last two mixed together). You’ll find the over-the-top mouthful ($9) Monday through Friday in the Penn Quarter shop and Tuesday through Saturday aboard Astro’s Virginia food truck.

It looks like the Luther may finally have some competition.
