This is no ordinary chicken sandwich! It’s the one and only Crimson Coward Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich AKA The Crimson. The Crimson is a certified hormone-free, boneless breast cooked to perfection and served with Crimson Sauce, house-made slaw, pickles on an artisan brioche bun. At Crimson Coward we use the finest chicken and have a direct relationship with the farmer. We know where our chicken comes from and you will taste the difference! The Crimson Chicken Sandwich is where it’s at and you can taste the quality.
The Crimson Rub – A lot of research and development went into developing the signature Crimson Coward rub. We didn’t stop until we knew we found THE perfect combination for Crimson Coward’s Hot Nashville chicken. Just how serious are we about delivering an authentic hot chicken experience? Well, we spent six months researching, yes you read that right. During that time we visited Nashville several times, you have to go the source when only the best will do. We also met with leading local chefs and got to work in the test kitchen. It then took four more months, yes we ate a lot of chicken during those months!
It was well worth it because “The Crimson Rub” was born. One of a kind flavor that you will not find anywhere else. We worked tirelessly and after testing 120 different combinations we found the one. The Crimson Rub contains a secret blend of over 16 primary and 32 secondary spices! We cannot tell you what our secret rub contains (exactly) but one thing we do is to apply “The Crimson Rub” 24 hrs before the chicken is cooked. It’s not the fastest way to create a Nashville Hot chicken sandwich or tenders but we go that extra mile at Crimson Coward. You can read all our glowing reviews but you must taste The Crimson for yourself.
