A few months back, I tried Nashville Hot Chicken for the first time. As a newcomer to that style of spicy fried chicken, the fiery experience brought tears to my eyes. I just couldn't touch them with my fingers. But despite the challenging level of spice, the chicken was flat out delicious.

Since then, I've been chasing that incredible taste.

Kentucky Fried Chicken announced that they are rolling out nationwide with their version of the iconic Nashville dish. The meal comes in either crispy fried chicken, extra crispy chicken tenders, a sandwich, or chicken wings that are glazed with KFC's Nashville Hot sauce. The chicken is also served with pickles to score true in authenticity.

Upon hearing this news, I was torn between joy and skepticism. A commercial take on such a distinguished dish couldn't end well, right?

I decided to grab some for Foodbeast's resident fried chicken enthusiast and connoisseur of spice Reach, who had this to say about the fast food variation:

I mean, I haven't eaten KFC in years, but I'm not mad at all with this Nashville Hot Chicken. It's surprisingly tasty.

It was amazing at how good the chicken actually came out. We had the Colonel's Extra Crispy was tossed in "Nashville Hot Chicken" sauce. There was a fair amount of heat and just a lick of sweetness to the fried chicken that actually worked, despite my reservations.

Not bad KFC. Not bad at all.

You can find the chicken at participating KFC locations nationwide. An order costs about $5.49 depending on the region you're in.
