If you’re a big fan of spicy food.. you’re going to love this! Publix’s new sandwich debut is the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich! The new sandwich will be available for a limited time, from April 2023 until June 30th.
How It’s Made
Publix already has famous chicken tenders. So this new sandwich will take those tenders, and they’ll be marinated in spices, breaded, and fried. Afterward, they’ll be glazed with a sauce made with garlic, cayenne pepper, and brown sugar. The chicken tenders will be put on two slices of King’s Hawaiian bread, with a pickle to add the finishing touch.
Idea Behind Publix’s New Sandwich
Nashville Hot is a flavor that has seen a rise in popularity across the country. So, Publix wanted to do its own take on the spice, but not without doing some research first. They wanted to ensure the most authentic flavor and even had their team and company chef travel to Nashville to sample some of the best.
While Nashville hot chicken can be pretty spicy, Publix didn’t want it to be too much. The end result they feel will appeal to most hot chicken lovers.
This isn’t the first time Publix has experimented with the Nashville hot trend. Late in 2022 they introduced the flavor as an option on the eight-piece fried chicken meal. They also used the glaze on their chicken wings, prior to adding it to the chicken tenders.
