Nashville-Style Hot Chicken Sandwich

Recipe photo courtesy of Bryan Gardner

Our take on the Nashville specialty relies on cayenne pepper and hot sauce for its fiery kick. Tame the heat with a simple, lightly dressed coleslaw on the side.

Cook's Notes

The Secret to Perfectly Crispy Fried Chicken
Adding a small amount of liquid to half the dry mixture will create craggy pieces that cling to the chicken and fry up extra crispy. Also important for crisp, not soggy chicken: bring ingredients to room temperature at least 30 minutes before cooking to keep the oil temperature from dropping too much.

Bonus Fried Chicken Snack
After frying chicken thighs, toss the removed oysters (the small tender piece of meat that hangs from the inside of each thigh) in remaining flour and buttermilk mixtures and fry until golden and cooked through, about 2 minutes. Serve as a side snack.
