If you have never eaten Nashville hot chicken, please note that Nashville chicken is HOT. It is supposed to be spicy and uses a lot of cayenne pepper.This recipe uses a lot of cayenne pepper, but I used much less than the original recipe from Hattie B's. Start with 1 or 2 Tbsp of cayenne pepper and add more after tasting the chicken.This is HOT!
