"Cashville" Finishing Sauce
From the October/November 2018 issue of Eat Drink Mississippi
This is the signature hot sauce at King Chicken Fillin' Station in Tupelo, Miss. This is not a dipping sauce, rather, it is meant to be prepared, the chicken rolled in the sauce until completely covered, then eaten. It will cover 20-25 pieces of chicken.
5 tablespoons cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
1/2 tablespoon honey
4 cups blended oil
Mix all the dry ingredients and honey (no oil yet) in medium, stainless steel bowl until completely blended.
Heat blended oil in a small saucepan on medium heat for 5 minutes or until it's at least 350 degrees F.
Once oil is heated, combine all ingredients.
Dip chicken and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes before eating.
Note: this sauce easily separates, so it needs to be stirred frequently.
