The Nashville Hot Chicken Craze

HotChicken.gif

Hanna Raskin of Slashfood recently published an article about Nashville Hot Chicken, which is apparently all the rage these days. I’d call it a fad, but apparently it’s been 40+ years in the making. Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack was first, but lately others have jumped into the fray: Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack, Zingerman’s Roadhouse and more. There’s even a Festival celebrating this fiery finger food.

If you really want to know the Hot Chicken secret, though, you have to watch the video. In less than nine minutes you’ll learn everything about this smoking-hot specialty (and perhaps a bit more than you really wanted to know). How did it all start? What makes it addictive? Will it improve your love life? (Pay attention, Tom.) Are there any after-effects? Is it an effective crime-fighting tool? These questions, and more, are explored in biting detail.

I’ve found a few recipes that purport to recreate this tasty, tongue-scorching meal. I’ll be experimenting to find one that suits my taste, since I can’t go to Prince’s for some original bird. Shoot, I bet I can even make something that’ll replace the slaw dog (here in the South we say “slaw dawg” like y’all’s sposedta) as the ultimate redneck dish

Enjoy the (Palate-Searing Fried Chicken) Heat!
