Nashville Hot Chicken

Nashville hot chicken has the power to trick your palate: You're smacked with a mildly sweet sauce for a brief moment. 

Then, though, the layers of pepper start to hit, leaving you scrambling for the jug of milk, beer, or ice water—pretty much anything that can take the edge off.  

It's not for the weak of heart (or, let's be honest, stomach issues) to eat hot chicken.  

Despite the risk, it tastes extremely good, and the intense heat generates enough endorphins to keep customers coming back—and waiting in line—for more.

Fried chicken glazed with a butter sauce flavored with cayenne is known as Nashville hot chicken. 

But first, it's coated in a flour mixture seasoned with pepper and brined in a spicy buttermilk marinade. Put differently, it's hot on all fronts.  

It is, as its name implies, a well-known delicacy in Nashville that has its roots in Prince's Hot Chicken.  

A despised woman created what would become the most famous meal in Music City in the 1930s.
