Hot Chicken Burger(Nashville Style Hot Chicken)


Try this homemade crispy and HOT Nashville style Chicken in a burger! 


Perfect crispy and HOT and Spicy Nashville style Chicken in a burger! 

I have never been to Nashville (at-least till now) but hope to visit soon, but I have tasted this Nashville Chicken in KFC outlets. Loved the sauce which was sweet and spicy at the same time and since then I wanted to make it once at home. Finally made this recipe and it's so good!

I have no idea how the authentic,real Nashville Hot Chicken would taste but hoping that the way I made based on KFC food taste that I had tasted, it must be doing some justice to the original one.
This is super crispy crust,and the sauce is the best part of this dish.Even if you want to skip the sauce but still the fried chicken is too good to resist.
I had served this for lunch and we had an awesome time eating homemade spicy crispy chicken,as kids had the fried chicken without sauce mix and elders had the burger with some extra fried chicken with lot of sauce.

What are the key ingredients?

  • Hot Sauce: This is the of the necessary ingredient to make the chicken taste good. Apart from cayenne pepper and paprika,HOT sauce need to be used. If you don't have this then use any chili sauce available with you and check how the taste works out.\

  • Cayenne Pepper: Cayenne Pepper is another important ingredient necessary to get that nice spicy smokey flavor.

  • Brown Sugar: This is needed to give that sweet taste to the chili oil,which we apply on the chicken finally.
