After the success of KFC’s Nashville Hot Chicken, R&D chefs explored other sauce variations that could be drizzled over the chain’s Extra Crispy Fried Chicken and breaded tenders. The beauty of the Nashville chicken sauce and my clone recipe is that it’s made without any water in the formula, just oil, so the crispy fried chicken that gets doused with it stays crispy.

But I had to make this sauce another way, with water in the mix. And with moisture in the sauce, the chicken coated with this clone of the Georgia Gold sauce doesn’t stay crispy as long as the chicken that’s coated with Nashville chicken sauce, even though it still tastes great—sweet, tangy, spicy, and slightly smoky. 

To make the sauce I mixed the dry ingredients into the mustard, then drizzled the oil into the mustard blend while whisking to form an emulsion that locked everything together into a smooth baste. Since mustard is such a great emulsifier, the process produced a very thick sauce. In the end I added a little water to thin it out so that when the sauce is drizzled over fried chicken or strips it coats with just the right amount.
