Shake Shack’s Korean-Style Fried Chick’n and Korean Gochujang Chick’n Bites + Fries have landed in all U.S. locations. Inspired by the company’s work and travels in South Korea and the food scene there, this limited-time chicken sandwich features a spicy-sweet gochujang-glazed crispy chicken breast over white kimchi slaw and toasted sesame seeds.
To make the slaw, Shake Shack teamed up with Choi’s Kimchi Co., a family-run kimchi biz from Portland, Oregon, to use their tangy white kimchi.
At Shake Shack, the chicken is real, antibiotic-free white meat breast that’s always fresh—never frozen. It’s slow-cooked sous vide in a creamy buttermilk marinade. After that, it’s dredged and breaded by hand and crisp-fried to order every single time.
For a limited time Shake Shack is also cookin’ up an entire Korean-inspired menu:
