Kentucky-based fried chicken chain KFC is adding Nashville hot chicken and waffles to its repertoire — releasing limited few fiery fowl dishes starting November 18. Until December 30, KFC loyalists and Nashville hot chicken enthusiasts can join avid brunch eaters to eat the new selection of Music City-inspired menu items. The new items pair two of KFC’s most celebrated innovations — spicy, smoky Nashville hot chicken, and fan-favorite Belgian Liege-style waffles.

Meal options include one breast, two piece thigh, and drum, or three-piece tenders, with or without Nashville Hot Sauce — complete with a waffle and a side of Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup for $6.49. Big basket meals include two waffles and two syrups, with a choice of two-piece white meat, three-piece dark meat, or four-piece tenders, with or without Nashville Hot sauce. Big basket meals are available with a drink for $8.49. (Prices may vary, tax is extra.)

There’s also a new take on the hotly debated fried chicken sandwich — a juicy, Nashville hot-style chicken filet sandwiched between two waffles, also served with a sweet side of Mrs. Butterworth’s® syrup for dipping, priced at $5.99 (also available as a combo for $7.99).

The fast food fried chicken experts at KFC were the first QSR to bring the oh-so-trendy, regional flavor of Nashville hot chicken to people nationwide at an affordable price when it launched the now-beloved dish in 2016. Following the nationwide release of the dish (the company’s most successful product launch in recent history), Google searches for “Nashville hot”increased by four times.

After that, KFC made a formerly upscale brunch favorite available to the masses coast to coast with the limited-time introduction of its Kentucky Fried Chicken & waffles. Now, it is combining the two regionally-inspired menu items to much fanfare.

Get KFC Nashville Hot Chicken & Waffles delivered free through Grubhub, where available, until November 24. Customers in the U.S. will automatically receive free delivery when they order through kfc.com or Grubhub.com; Seamless.com, Grubhub’s NYC brand; orthe respective brand apps. During this promotional period, free delivery will be available at more than 2,600 participating KFC restaurant locations (no special code needed).
