Uncool – KFC Nashville Hot Chicken Review

I’ve never had a bad experience at KFC. Then again, I’m not a chicken. The food has always been a decent crowd pleaser, and even the seemingly-gross combinations where the Colonel simply adds a bunch of leftovers to one concoction, like the “Famous Bowl,” turn into delightful feasts for my sophisticated palate.

When I saw Norm MacDonald doing his latest pitch, I was intrigued. The notion of Nashville Hot Chicken led me to two questions. Nashville is in Kentucky now? Why I am not eating this?

I like chicken, but even more, I like hot chicken, so I drove through for a meal. The standard meal comes with three tenders, two pickle slices, coleslaw, and a biscuit. What could be bad about that? A lot, apparently.

KFC managed to doctor up the chicken by making the outside fairly red with noticeable herbs and spices. It is a feast for your eyes as you dig in. Something funny happens, though, when you take your first bite. That thing? Nothing. Nothing happens when you bite it. It just … well …it just tastes like chicken. There might be a subtle undertone of black pepper, but that’s it. There is nothing about this chick that pulls you in to take another bite.

Then, I started to think. Maybe Nashville Hot Chicken only refers to the temperature, not the spiciness. Am I being too hard? It is hot after all.

I’ve never been to Nashville, but here in western PA, we like our hot chicken hot. Need proof? Just roll over to a Quaker Steak and Lube for evidence.

To make matters worse, KFC, in their infinitely perfect judgment, decides to put the biscuit in the same container as your chicken. This results in the odd “Hot Juice” soaking into your biscuit. Now, you have crappy chicken and a soggy biscuit.

Consume.Review.Repeat. gives KFC’s Nashville Hot Chicken 1 soggy biscuit out of 10.

They also forgot my mashed potatoes. Stupid KFC.
