With no offense to our vegan friends, who doesn’t love fried chicken!? We’ve dipped and dunked for years our fried chicken into a plethora of different corn syrup filled BBQ sauces and other vinegar-heavy hot sauces that just don’t bring out the joy one should feel biting down into a piping hot fried chicken breast, thigh, or drumstick.
Never fear, we’ve compiled a trio of three amazing hot sauces that will up your fried chicken experience with enough punches of heat and flavor that’ll knock you into your senses so you’ll never go back to having fried chicken with a bad sauce again!
Disclaimer: This one is a scorcher! However, if you can handle the heat, you’ll fall in love with the flavor. A position nine celebrity destroyer on the hit YouTube series Hot Ones, Scorpion Disco dances its way through your mouth with an ultra-hot mix of Scorpion, 7 Pot Primo, Ghost, and Chocolate Habanero peppers with sweet and spiciness that just has to be tried to experience a whole new opportunity to bring your fried chicken experience to the big leagues.
There seems to be a million mango habanero hot sauces on the market today, but none do it better than PepperNutz’s Mango Hab. Smooth, sweet, and spicy (but not too spicy, a nice medium heat!), this one can be enjoyed by the whole family. The freshness of the mango flavor hits your tastebuds right away. A little hint of lime and cilantro round out this gem and whether its fried chicken or regular chicken, this hot sauce will be your new go-to.
Fans of tangy-style hot sauces will go nuts for this one. If you want that same feel and flavor without the corn-syrup filled mass-produced grocery store sauces you’ve wasted your fried chicken on for years, Fresco Sauce’s Chile de Arbol comes to the rescue. This one has mango but don’t call it a mango hot sauce, because its so much more. Chile de arbol’s grassy yet complex flavor really gives this one a solid base and a low-medium heat means that this one can be had by all.
