Nashville Fried Chicken


  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp Louisiana hot sauce
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • ½ c unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 cup mayo
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 1-2 tbsp Louisiana hot sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Organic Vegetable oil spray
  • 6 brioche hamburger buns
  • Dill pickle slices
  • Mix the marinade ingredients and submerge the chicken. Refrigerate for as little as 30 Minutes, and up to 12 Hours. We recommend an hour at minimum for juicy results.
  • Prepare a breading station. Pour flour in one bowl, whisk the eggs in a separate bowl, and mix the salt and panko breadcrumbs together in a third bowl. Get a clean plate for the finished breaded chickens.
  • Shake off the marinade on a chicken thigh and coat in the flour. Drench the coated chicken in the egg wash, and then cover in the panko breading. Set aside on the clean plate. Continue dredging until all the chicken has been coated.
  • Spray the air fryer grates with organic vegetable oil spray. Place the chicken in the basket, careful to not overlap, and spray the tops with additional oil. Air Fry at 385°F / 195°C for 12 – 14 Minutes. Turn the chicken halfway and spray with additional oil.
  • While the chicken is cooking, prepare the Nashville sauce. Whisk together all ingredients and keep in a warm place until ready to use so the butter doesn’t solidify. After the initial cooking period has completed, baste the tops of the chicken with the Nashville sauce. Return to the air fryer and cook for an additional 2-4 Minutes at 385°F / 195°C. Continue until all chicken has been air fried.
  • Make the comeback sauce by combining all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Assemble each sandwich by spreading the comeback sauce on a bottom burger bun, topping with a few slices of pickles, then the air fried chicken, then more comeback sauce, and finally the burger bun. Serve warm.
