NASHVILLE HOT CHICKEN.
NOW IN THE SSI.
An example of unintended consequences
A Brief and Probably Inaccurate History
Nashville hot chicken is said to have been invented by an angry wife who dumped a ton of cayenne into a flour bowl, dipped some chicken in it, then fried it for the wayward hubs to, shall we say, light a little fire under his you-know-what. Thing was, he liked it. Which goes to show that a) cheating is bad and b) hot chicken is delicious.
Two crazy clucks
Palmer and Mills spent over a year coming up with the magical combination of heat, spice, and southern sass you are about to enjoy. They tweaked batter, fiddled with frying techniques, and tussled over temperatures too many times to count. They tested the concoctions on hot chicken connoisseurs in Nashville, took notes, and kept at it until they reached what we believe is a perfect basket of bird (or fish!) to share with friends and family on the porch with a few cold ones. Enjoy!
