What do you put on your fried chicken?

I love condiments and think it's interesting which people prefer for different foods. What's your favorite condiment for fried chicken? For fried chicken, I'm a hot sauce girl - Texas Pete or Crystal.

  1. BBQ sauce for me, if I do anything.

    1. Hot sauce.... Tapatio, sriracha, Cholula, I'm an equal opportunity hot sauce eater- use them frequently but loyal to none. With all the peppers I'm growing I think I'll work on my own as a summer project.

        I've always wanted to make my own hot sauce, good luck. I imagine it'll be a fun project.

          Tapatio is my new favorite hot sauce. fairly thick, great color, not crazy hot

        2. I love maple syrup warmed w a little sriracha stirred in.

              Maple syrup with Sriracha (or other hot sauces) really isn't that odd. It's just like chicken 'n waffles, which is generally eaten with maple syrup and often with a dash of something hot and spicy.

                never thought about doing this but it makes so much delicious sense. thanks for the tip... i'll try to remember it for the next fried chicken run.

                    I am trying to imagine how that would taste and my brain just won't connect the dots on this one. I am going to try it soon. It sounds intriguing.

                  2. A variety of hot sauces, but I love cream gravy too.

                      +1 on cream gravy, made with the dripping from frying the chicken, of course

                          Wow, I had forgotten about that. I will risk a stroke for this
                          especially if it has some sausage fat in it and a ton of pepper

                        2. re: TXMandy

                          Yum, me too. With tons of black pepper.

                        3. I like to crumble the dried seaweed snack sheets from TJ's/Costco over fried chicken when it's hot. Haven't tried it over cold chicken though.
