Since opening in late 2018, Hot Cluckers has given the Springfield community the gift of Nashville-style fried chicken. So if a craving calls for a fried chicken sandwich, it's equally easy and deliciously rewarding to support local.
Although the menu has ample options for family-style takeout with ½ bird and whole bird options, it doesn't leave out those seeking single servings. Offerings like the ¼ bird and the fried chicken sandwich are the perfect serving size for one.
To give the chicken a juicy texture and its spicy flavor, Hot Cluckers brines, breads and fries it before topping it off with a cross between a dry rub and a sauce. You can choose your own spice level, which ranges from Nancy (no spice) all the way to Hot Mother Clucker.
Don't forget to also bring home a side of your favorite fried side, like fried pickles, okra or green tomatoes.
