Fried Chicken Meets Red Velvet ... and the Rest Is History


red velvet cupcakesFried chicken and cupcakes are good enough on their own. But together? Now you're talkin'!

Never in my wildest dreams could I have come up with something this intense: Chicken dipped in red velvet cake batter, dredged in toasted, crumbled bits of red velvet cupcake -- then fried.

Wait. There's more ...

It's paired with a side of cream-cheese infused garlic potatoes. You know, because it wouldn't be red velvet without cream cheese.

This stick-to-your-ribs, Southern-fried delicacy sounds like something with Paula Deen's name written all over it, right? But actually the Butter Queen didn't have her hands in this one: It's actually a new dish served at a restaurant called American Cupcake in San Francisco.

Just when we thought the cupcake trend was winding down, now cupcake batter seems to be picking up. But I'm a sucker for anything that combines sweet and savory flavors, so I say: Bring it on!

Would you eat Red Velvet Fried Chicken?

I don't think I'd try that - I generally like sweet and savory, but deep fried cake batter just sounds greasy-gross.
