From a press release:

“It takes two! Shake Shack is proud to announce a limited edition collaboration with celebrated chef Erik Bruner-Yang for the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area. Crispy Peking Chicken ($6.49) consists of a crispy chicken breast with Maketto hoisin sauce, pickle, cucumber and scallion. This DMV-exclusive sandwich is an updated comfort classic from Chef Erik Bruner-Yang and Shake Shack culinary director Mark Rosati.

Crispy Peking Chicken is available from Friday, April 15th—24th at the Dupont Circle, F Street, Union Station, Inner Harbor and Tysons Corner Shacks.

“The flavors of Peking duck are almost as American as Shake Shack in this day and age,” said Chef Erik Bruner-Yang, founder of Toki Underground and Maketto. This joint effort furthers Shake Shack’s mission to work with best-in-class culinary partners.

Served on a pillowy potato roll, Crispy Peking Chicken is cage-free chicken breast—no hormones or antibiotics ever—slow-cooked in a creamy buttermilk marinade, hand-dipped into Shack-made batter and dredged through seasoned flour.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be collaborating with Chef Erik Yang for this special one-time chicken sandwich,” said Mark Rosati. “Crispy Peking Chicken harnesses and highlights all that’s great about our fine casual chicken through Chef Yang’s cooking style and flavors.”

    Just tried their regular ChickenShack sandwich last week. Not a huge fan of their burgers but the chicken sandwich was excellent… light years beyond the rubbery hockey pucks served by Chic Fila.

    This will be a treat for myself for submitting taxes on-time!

    Chickens like every other animal in the universe have hormones. Its what get them laid.
    As far as “added hormones”, they have been illegal in poultry for over 50 years. But thanks for trying to reminding us Danny Meyer.
    And cage-free means absolutely nothing and has no USDA standard definition. Instead of being packed in cages, the chickens are packed in indoor barns on concrete just as tightly and never see the light of day.

    That’s called “greenwashing”, Danny.

      Do you also parse the nutritional claims on cereal boxes while walking through the store?
      What about in infomercials?

        Sometimes. I don’t like being told that the champagne I’m buying is actually urine.

        Do you parse the information on a phone plan, car lease, internet service, hotel accommodations?

    Just got it, despite the haters on this thread it was worth the wait. Got the strawberry mint lemonade too goes nice with it
