Nashville Hot Chicken





Nashville Hot Chicken








Juicy, crispy, Nashville Hot Chicken (customizable spicy fried chicken) is the only fried chicken recipe you will ever need!  Nashville Hot Chicken is legendary for it's bite but when you make it at home, you can decide just how much heat you want.  You can leave off the Nashville Hot Sauce at the end for crunchy, flavor bursting chicken or add more or less Sauce to customize how spicy you want it.  Either way, you won’t be able to resist this electrifying easier-than-you-think fried chicken!
