Nashville Hot Chicken Deviled Eggs!

Are you Looking For A New Spin On A Thanksgiving Classic?!

It has always been a tradition in my family to have deviled eggs on our Holiday table as an appetizer when we sit down for Thanksgiving dinner. We actually make them for Easter also since they go with the menu so incredibly well! The original recipe was created with good high quality mayonnaise, mustard, the egg yolks from inside the boiled eggs, sea salt, freshly cracked black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Although, I love changing up original recipes by adding my own unique and creative touches to it I also sprinkle paprika on the top no matter what. I It does something special to the flavor of the filling that makes it just magical. People either love these eggs or hate them, but I absolutely love them. Whenever I’m passionate about a certain style of food or dish, I enjoy experimenting with it to find out how many different innovative ways I can create it into a new flavor profile while keeping it’s same nostalgia. I’ve made deviled eggs using cream cheese and bacon, jalapenos and ranch, and fried prosciutto for a crunchy topping, but never chicken.

Therefore, today is the day!

Deviled eggs are one of the easiest appetizers you could create, yet they taste super decadent because of their richness in textures and flavors.

  • First things first! Boil as many eggs as you would like! I always boil my eggs a bit different compared to the standard way of boiling them.
  • Fill a pot with your eggs and then add water to cover them.
  • When the water comes to a boil shut the heat off and leave them sit for 10 minutes.
  • Then, let the eggs sit in an ice bag for at least 5 minutes so that they can be good and ready to get peeled.

Perfect boiled eggs every. single. time.

How to make the Nashville Hot Chicken deviled egg filling?

The chicken component:

  • Pull a fried chicken thigh apart and cut into very tiny pieces so that it can be proportional to the egg whites.
  • Small dice a small yellow onion.
  • Small dice one celery stock.
  • Chop up a handful of scallions.
  • Saute the chicken and veggies with 2 tablespoons of butter, 1/4 cup of Nashville hot chicken hot sauce, and 2 tablespoons of thick original hot sauce.
  • Season with seasoned salt, freshly cracked black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Nashville hot chicken seasoning.
  • Cook on medium low heat for five minutes.

Cool the chicken mixture in the fridge for at least 20 minutes before adding it into the filling.


The creamed yolk components:

  • All of the hard boiled yolks from inside the eggs.
  • 1/4 block of cream cheese (softened).
  • 1/4 cup of good mayonnaise.
  • 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard.
  • The cooled chicken mixture.
  • Season with tons of paprika, more Nashville hot chicken seasoning, chives, and parsley.

Combine everything together with an electric hand mixer. This comes together very quickly!
