Prince's Hot Chicken

Prince's Hot Chicken in Nashville, Tennessee

I had read that one thing we needed to try in Nashville was Hot Chicken and that the place to get it was Prince's. So, on a blisteringly hot day we made the pilgrimage. We joined a bunch of other sweating customers patiently waiting for their food as the kitchen meticulously cooked up one order at a time.

Finally, our order was up. I got a leg quarter, medium spicy with extra pickles and bread. I knew from my research that I probably didn't need to go spicier than medium, and sure enough it was very hot (both in temperature and spice level). It was also very tasty - nice and crunchy outside and perfectly moist on the inside.

Sherry got a breast quarter, mild. It was still plenty hot, though - not a bad way to go if you don't like really spicy food.

Good eats. Definitely not to be missed when visiting Nashville.

  1. Hey Michael - It's the wonderbread that makes it the real deal for me....down South, they always include bread slices.

  2. Kirk - it's true, we did have more wonderbread on this trip than in recent memory. It worked really well in the context, though.

  3. Awesome

    Wonderbread is considered "homemade bread" here in the south...

    Love that Nashville Chicken.. and fish...
    East Side Fish, Bolton's, 400 degrees,... and Prince's

  4. Matt - we really wanted to try some hot fish as well, but we ran out of time. Maybe on our next visit.

  5. this is the best chicken I have ever had in my life! I was raised as a little girl, now 27, seeing Aundre going for hot chicken runs with my dad, who is in the Nashville Music Curcuit
