The spicy fried chicken sandwiches have been in a continual flex over the last several years. Sales are up around the country, and more and more restaurants are looking to add these items to their menu. And now, there are entire establishments opening up that cater specifically to those who love hot chicken sandwiches. That includes Twist Hot Chicken, a new chicken sandwich restaurant opening soon in metro Phoenix. 

Twist Hot Chicken wants to capitalize on the trend while offering guests an assortment of spicy chicken options. For those craving a spicy chicken sandwich, the restaurant offers its signature Twist Hock Chicken, which is a deep-fried chicken breast, topped with house-slaw, pickles, Twist Sauce, and a breading that is either mild, medium, hot, or “Can’t Touch This.” Beyond the signature sandwich, there is the Hot Moroccan, which uses a harissa sauce, red cabbage slaw, and Alabama white sauce. The Shabazi sandwich uses a spicy green Zhoug sauce, red cabbage slaw, and tahini sauce, while the Nashville Blues uses the classic creamy Nashville sauce, blue cheese, and kale slaw. 

For others who would rather skip the bun and jump right to the fried chicken, Twist Hot chicken will sell a two-piece chicken tender meal, which comes with a choice of dipping sauces such as honey mustard, honey, mumbo BBQ, pimento cheese, and the signature Twist Sauce. 

The restaurant will not only be about fried chicken though. There are a handful of sides, including fries, cheese curd fries, and mac-n-cheese. Even vegan options are available, with vegan “chicken” patties instead of the chicken breast patties. 

The new restaurant is located in Peoria at 8386 West Thunderbird Road (#103). It is open seven days a week, from 11 AM until 9 PM. The restaurant is not a chain. It is locally owned, as the owners live in the community. Currently, the restaurant in Peoria is the only location available anywhere. However, should it prove a hit to the local community, expansion to the rest of the Valley is always an option. The restaurant is currently open, and food can be ordered both inside the restaurant or ahead of time. For those who don’t want to wait in line, it’s possible to put in an order directly through the Twist Hot Chicken website. Gift cards are also available for anyone out there who might love trying out one of the several spicy chicken sandwiches for sale at Twist Hot Chicken.
