Prince's Hot Chicken Shack

Prince's Hot Chicken Shack


Prince's Hot Chicken has long been THE Hot chicken place to go in Nashville, TN! If you are not familiar with HOT Chicken, let me school you a tad bit. Hot Chicken is popular in Nashville! I mean, every summer there is even a Hot Chicken Festival held in the city! When I say HOT, I am referring to how spicy the chicken is.

Prince's HOT Chicken has won too many awards to count including the prestigious James Beard Award this year! It is nestled in a strip mall off the beaten path and trust me, there is nothing pretentious about this place! The place is always crowded and literally feels like you are sitting in great-grandma's kitchen "down south" somewhere. 



Here is the sign describing the spiciness scale:
I ordered MILD but now that I look at this closer, I see the mistake I made :-(. I should have gone with "PLAIN" because just 3 bites of the "MILD" had my mouth on FIYA!
I have absolutely NO clue how any human being can tolerate the XXXHOT....I just don't see it!

This is a MILD piece of Prince's Famous HOT Chicken!

The only way to eat chicken like this (at least this is the only way we do it in the south) is with a couple of slices of white bread! The pickles placed on top is characteristic of the whole HOT Chicken movement. I enjoyed my chicken with potato salad and baked beans (Sorry I did not take a picture of them....). I'm glad I had these sides because not only were they awesome but they took some of the sting out of the chicken!

Are you a fan of Nashville's HOT Chicken??
