Get Fired Up for L.A.'s Best Hot Chicken

11/26/2017

Esther Tseng

It’s steamy, it’s crispy, it’s juicy and most of all, it’s spicy. We’re talking about Nashville Hot Chicken - that fried bird phenomenon that started with the vengeful girlfriend of a man named Thornton Prince in Nashville, Tennessee. Trying to serve justice for being spited backfired however, and the cayenne-laced recipe has since become a favorite across the South.

Los Angeles pays homage to the heat with the tradition that has now thankfully made it cross-country. We are so lucky that bona fide renditions of that hot chicken can be found all over L.A. these days. We’ve supplemented our Nashville Hot Chicken list with other deliciously spicy chicken dishes, so you can try more of our favorites that glean influences from elsewhere.
