Other Info

Nashville, Tennessee is known for their legendary “Hot Chicken” but I think it is even better with wild turkey! The dish is deep fried and typically served on a slice of white bread with bread and butter pickles accompanied by coleslaw or mac and cheese. It can also be made into a sandwich. This one is for the spice lovers as it is hot!
