What is different about this Best Nashville-style Hot Chicken Sandwich?

As you’d expect, Nashville hot chicken is fried chicken with a major kick. The chicken gets a hefty dose of spice thanks to hot sauce and cayenne in the coating as well as a spicy sauce drizzled over the top. This version of fried chicken is served with white bread and pickles to help balance out the heat.
