Without the blistering heat, hot chicken would be just plain-old fried chicken — not that there's anything wrong with that. But fans of Nashville hot chicken are in search of something different: the endorphin rush that comes calling following the consumption of those fiery capsaicins.
If that describes you, then you're in luck. This week only, Hot Chicken Takeover (242 Main St., 440-638-1117) has rolled out a new heat level that is available for all of its fried chicken dishes. Typically, menu items like wings, drums, thighs, breasts and sandwiches come in degrees of heat dubbed cold, warm, hot and holy. For the uninitiated, hot is indeed hot and holy is on par with real-deal Szechuan food.
