(WJHL) – While Nashville wears the hot chicken crown, the Tri-Cities have plenty of their own offerings when it comes to spiced and fried birds. That’s why News Channel 11 is asking our viewers to name the area’s Best Fried Chicken this time around.

Nominations will close at midnight on May 7, then a round of voting for finalists will determine which local eatery reigns supreme. One nomination is allowed per participant, and all entries must be a local small business.
