What is Hot Chicken?

Hot chicken is a spicy fried chicken dish that is native to Nashville, Tennessee. The spices used are typically cayenne pepper and paprika. Nowadays, other spices such as cumin, chili powder and turmeric are often used for the hot sauce that is slathered on the fried bird prior to frying. This hot sauce can vary from restaurant to restaurant with some hotter than others depending on how much heat you want. Adding a slice of bread or two can provide some relief from the extreme spice; however, we don’t recommend doing this unless you really need it because the chicken skin is what will keep you full and satisfied throughout your meal.

How we prepare our hot chicken

We’ve tried many methods of frying chicken, but we think the best fried chicken is when it’s fried twice. First, dredge it through our hand-mixed spice and flour mixture. Then fry until the crust is nice and crispy. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels or a rack. We salt both sides of the bird with salt then finish it off with a quick dunk in our custom buttermilk dip before we serve it up to you. What’s hot about our hot chicken? Our proprietary blend of spices including cayenne pepper, paprika, black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder creates the perfect balance between heat and flavor.
