Unfortunately we do not have the privilege to have tried authentic Nashville Hot Chicken.  At least when I wrote this, I have yet to have tried it, which is funny how the future works.  Regardless we have combined the spices from KFC’s original recipe and Nashville’s hot oil mixture to create a hybrid flavor beast for your mouth.  Make sure you do not have serious heart conditions before consuming, it could very well be your last bite, for the hellth of it.​
