KFC is launching ‘Nashville Hot Chicken’ at all of its US locations

KFC Nashville Hot Chicken

KFC is bringing its “Nashville Hot Chicken” recipe to all of its 4,300 US stores starting on Monday.

“We think it will be the biggest spicy chicken innovation to happen since Buffalo wings in the 1980’s,” Kevin Hochman, the chain’s U.S. chief marketing officer said at a media event Thursday in New York.

“Right now, it’s hard to to find Nashville Hot Chicken unless you live in Nashville. So we’re bringing it to you,” he said.

KFC says the hot chicken recipe is a combination of spicy, smoky, and crispy flavors meant to pay homage Nashville’s flavor profile.

KFC’s Nashville Hot Chicken is also only the fourth chicken flavor added to the menu in the chain’s 86-year history.

The company claims to have made 50 to 70 different flavor profiles to get this new flavor just right.

An individual Nashville Hot Chicken meal (with a two or three-piece tenders basket, coleslaw, pickles, and a biscuit) costs $5.49 to $5.99.
