Federal Donuts is my daughter's favorite donut place in Philly, and probably of all time (and she's sampled plenty of donuts in Portland so that's really saying something).

The fried chicken is really good. The batter is fried very thin and crispy, with plenty of flavor. The chili garlic is exceptionally tasty.

So how do donuts go with fried chicken? Really well! It's like getting dessert with your meal. And they're both fried, so there's sort of a flavor connection between the meat and the cake.
I wonder how long before Federal Donuts shows up on a TV foodie show?
TIP: Sound like a local and tell your friends you ate chicken and donuts at Fed Nuts.
