Let me walk you through the pleasurable experience of eating Nashville Hot Chicken. You pick up a piece of chicken from atop the sliced white bread that is now partially soaked absorbing some of that seasoning. The chicken is still glistening from the deep orange-red dunk into the spicy coating, the crust is thick and hard (that’s what she said) and easy to grip (that’s what she said again). The fumes from the hot spice almost burn your nose as you bring it close to your mouth to take a bite. CRUNCH!! The crack of the crust is so loud you can taste the crunchiness. Your lips are wet and oily from the sauce and you are so mesmerized by the juiciness of the chicken that you don’t realize your lips are starting to burn. You continue to take more bites and as the spice sets in you try to heal the burn by taking more bites faster and faster but to no avail because it only burns more. So you eat some pickles. That cools it down for a moment. But you miss the burn, so you return for more bites, only to start the process over.
Not only did you just experience complete divinity, you just made this yourself and people love you for it! This recipe will make you a proud hero and if you are intimidated by the description of all that heat, you can easily tone down the spice level to something more comfortable for you or your fam.
