In Nashville hot chicken is almost a religion. Basically it’s a spicy sauce that is poured over freshly fried chicken. Make your favorite fried chicken recipe and use this sauce for a wonderful taste experience.

 

  • In a sauce pan add the oil and gently heat to medium.
  • Add all of the other ingredients and whisk to combine well.
  • Use the sauce to cover the chicken before serving.
  • Recipe may be doubled.
  • Note: If sauce is too thick and more oil.

  1. Craig,
    At 3 Tbs it would be “medium” for authentic Nashville hot chicken. 6 Tbs would be “hot”. Whenever I go home to Nashville I make a point to eat some hot chicken. I break out in a sweat after one bite and sometimes can’t even talk for a bit. Yet I can’t stop eating it.
