​The Nashville Hot Chicken Recipe From the Grand Lux Café: An Easy Spicy Chicken Recipe

Nashville Hot Chicken originated in Tennessee. No surprise there. The surprise is how many different recipes there are for this spicy chicken dish. Here is an easy Nashville Hot Chicken recipe from the Grand Lux Café. Boneless chicken breasts are fried until crispy and then coated in a homemade Nashville Hot sauce and served green beans, mashed potatoes and pickles.

Use whatever hot sauce you enjoy. There are a variety of vinegar-based hot sauces like Louisiana Hot Sauce and Tabasco Sauce available in major grocery stores. The Grand Lux Café makes its mashed potatoes from scratch in each restaurant, but you can use your favorite mashed potato recipe for this easy chicken dinner.  

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1 ounce unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

Chicken

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4 ounces each), slightly pounded
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • vegetable oil, for frying (as needed)

For Serving

  • 4 ounces steamed green beans
  • 8 ounces mashed potatoes
  • 8 pickle slices

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Add enough oil into a large frying pan to come up approximately 1 1/2 inches on the sides. Make sure that the oil does not fill the pan completely. Heat the oil over medium heat to 350 degrees F or until it begins to shimmer.
  2. Heat the hot sauce, butter, honey, granulated garlic, onion powder, brown sugar, paprika, cayenne, salt and crushed red pepper flakes in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Stir the ingredients together and bring to a simmer. Set aside until needed.
  3. Season both sides of the pounded chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Coat the chicken breasts in the flour and dip into the buttermilk. Repeat the flour and buttermilk process, and then coat in the flour one last time. Place the chicken into the frying pan and cook until half done. Carefully turn the chicken over and continue to cook until done and has become crispy and golden brown. Remove from the pan and allow to drain on paper towels.
  4. Mound equal amounts of mashed potatoes onto each serving plate. Place equal amounts of the green beans onto each serving plate next to the mashed potatoes. Place two chicken breasts onto each serving plate and drizzle the sauce evenly over the chicken. Place the pickle slices on top of the chicken.
