Hot Chicken is not the same thing as Spicy chicken or Buffalo chicken. It is original to Nashville, TN USA and pretty unique to this area. We even have an annual Hot Chicken Festival to celebrate and compete with our individual recipes.

It is definitely a Food Challenge item.
Locals love the juice soaked white bread as much as the chkn

For a history of Nashville Hot Chicken, google Princes Hot Chicken, Nashville TN.

Oh yeah..if you're going to try this, don't go far or travel for at least 20 minutes. If you manage to make it through a serving, it is notorious for leaving you quickly.
