KFC debuts ‘Nashville hot chicken’

Inspired by “one of Nashville’s most famous dishes,” Kentucky Fried Chicken says it has introduced Nashville-style hot chicken in the Pittsburgh market.

KFC’s website notes that the “spicy bird with a savory burn” will soon roll out to all of the chain’s locations. The Nashville hot preparation is served as both chicken tenders and chicken on the bone. 

Nashville-style hot chicken has lately been gaining traction outside of Tennessee, with concepts such as Peaches HotHouse in Brooklyn, New York, highlighting the preparation.

Diversifying chicken offerings has become a hot topic for restaurants across all segments, as rising beef costs are leading operators to consider inventive beef alternatives that will pique customers’ interest.
