BIRDCODE specializes in Nashville style Hot Chicken.
So… what is Hot Chicken? Nashville style Hot Chicken is a dish unlike anything else. It's most often composed of chicken that's been breaded, fried and liberally seasoned with a signature blend of spices. But be warned, it's called HOT for a reason!
Tip: Don’t be a hero - go for mild or medium your first time.
The roots of Nashville’s now-famous hot chicken date back to the 1930s. As local lore goes, a scorned woman was seeking revenge on her wandering significant other, Thornton Prince, so she smothered his chicken with cayenne pepper, hoping to get her revenge. But it turned out Prince loved it and decided to open a restaurant: Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack. This family-run business is still around today in Nashville. Definitely check it out if you get the chance.
During an amazing trip to Nashville we fell in LOVE with Hot Chicken. Our desire to share this extraordinary food experience with our family, friends, and neighbors inspired us to create BIRDCODE Hot Chicken.
Taking our cue from the cult-like following of Nashville hot chicken, we’ve gone a step further to secure a code when it comes to our birds. Our chicken is all natural, fresh (never frozen), raised with humane animal welfare; NO antibiotics, NO hormones, NO junk. We fry it up nice n’ good in 100% peanut oil with NO added chemicals or byproducts. Each of our tasty sides is made fresh daily from only the highest-quality, responsibly sourced ingredients.
Respect The Code – Fear The Heat!
That’s the BIRDCODE.
