KFC's NEW Recipe! - Nashville Hot Chicken


I know some people may take one look at this post and turn their nose up at the thought of fast food and fried chicken. But let's get real here. I love nothing more than fine dining and Champagne but in reality we can't all go out every night for luxurious dinners. Every now and then I love a bit of KFC so I was SO excited when KFC invited me to come along and try their new recipe. 

Yes, for the first time in its history, KFC has departed from its Original Recipe chicken on the bone....


So in preparation for my bikini body (oops) I put on my lipstick (bad idea) and headed over the KFC Tottenham Court Road to try out the new Nashville Hot chicken which launches tomorrow - Monday 22 May 2017.

Now don't freak out, because the Original Recipe chicken on the bone is still available! The Nashville Hot is available in the UK for a limited time  (22nd May to 18th June). 

But I may make a big claim and say that the Nashville Hot may be my new favourite...


I dug in and smudged my lipstick all around my face. 

It was INCREDIBLE. 

This spicy and smokey beauty is cayenne and paprika encrusted and served straight up with with gherkins. There was a beautiful contrast of sweet and savoury and it has a powerful spicy kick but it's bearable. Especially for someone like me who for example will always order a chicken korma... 

So KFC scoured its homeland, the Deep South, to find the best authentic new taste for its chicken on the bone recipe. This new delight is inspired by Nashville’s original hot chicken shacks. The Nashville Hot chicken is thought to have been created by the Andre Prince Jeffries family, owners of Prince's Hot Chicken Shack, which is still doing a roaring trade in Nashville.

(We were told that Andre’s great uncle was a bit of a ladies’ man and after a particularly late night out, his girlfriend made him fried chicken with extra pepper as revenge. BUT Andre’s great uncle loved the dish - he went on to create his own recipe and open a chicken shack selling the hot chicken which is still sold in the family today.)


 And here's a photo of me admiring the beauty that is Nashville Hot Chicken. Which is amazing. By far my favourite thing at KFC now, you have to try it!


It seems everyone around us was enjoying it too...





We loved KFC's new look for the night and I definitely think there's an opportunity for KFC to open restaurant's like these! 

KFC was kitted out with new decor and an amazing band so it felt like we had were visiting the Deep South for the night.
