Nashville Hot Chicken Tenders

My fiancé and best friend are literally the biggest Nashville hot chicken critiques I have ever met! So, when I decided to get my foot into the Nashville hot chicken door, it had to be GOOD and lemme tell you, this stuff is GOOD. It is the perfect intense heat at first and then the cooling, honey flavor hits you at the end.

  1. Delicious, but not too spicy. This recipe is really easy compared to a traditional Nashville Hot recipe. I will be making this again soon!
