Let’s do a quick comparison on mild vs spicy chicken so that you can decide which one will appeal to your taste buds.

Mild Chicken: Subtle and Delicious

Mild chicken dishes are appreciated for their delicate and well-balanced flavors. They aim to showcase the natural taste of the chicken while adding a touch of complementary seasoning. Here are some key characteristics of mild chicken:

  • Versatility.Mild chicken acts as a blank canvas, allowing the flavors of other ingredients to shine. This versatility makes it suitable for a wide variety of dishes, such as comfort food classics like mac and cheese, salads and wraps.
  • Delicate Seasonings. To keep the flavor profile consistent, mild chicken uses mild seasonings such as herbs like thyme, rosemary or sage. The focus is on enhancing the chicken's natural flavor rather than overpowering it.
  • Creamy Sauces. You can dip mild chicken into any sauce you’d like, as it won’t consume the taste of the chicken. Some popular sauces to serve with mild chicken are ranch, barbecue and honey mustard.
  • Family-Friendly. Families often prefer mild chicken because there is usually someone in the house who prefers milder tastes. This flavor profile appeals to a broader audience, including those who may be sensitive to spicy foods.

Spicy Chicken: Igniting the Flames of Flavor

For those who crave a bold and fiery culinary experience, spicy chicken dishes provide a thrilling adventure for the taste buds. Here's what you can expect from spicy chicken:

  • Heat and Depth. Spicy chicken dishes pack a punch with the addition of hot peppers or spices that awaken the palate. The heat levels can range from mildly spicy to tongue-tingling, so you can go as spicy as you’d like.
  • Complex Seasonings. Spicy chicken is known for its vibrant and complex seasonings. Ingredients like chili powder, cayenne pepper, paprika or hot sauce are used to create layers of flavor that keep you coming back for more.
  • Tangy and Zesty Sauces. Unlike mild chicken that can use any sauce,spicy chicken pairs best with tangy and zesty sauces like buffalo sauce, jerk marinade or a spicy barbecue glaze. Two popular sauce options we have on our menu are sriracha mayo and creamy buffalo sauce.
