Chick-fil-a breakfast is my all time favorite meal, and now it has some competition! I've never fried chicken before, but this recipe made it simple for a beginner like myself. The mix of the spices and flour makes an excellent, flavorful crust for the chicken that is well-balanced with the honey butter glaze on the biscuit. This filling southern breakfast paired with seasonal fruit is definitely a must have at your next brunch.
Makes 8 servings
Preparation Time: 30 Minutes
Cooking Time: 20 Minutes
*1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers biscuits
*2 large chicken breasts
*1 cup flour
*1 teaspoon onion powder
*1/2 teaspoon red pepper
*1 teaspoon chili powder
*2 teaspoons paprika
*1 teaspoon celery salt
*2 teaspoons sugar
*1/4 cup milk
*1 cup vegetable oil
*3 tablespoons butter, melted
*2 tablespoons honey
*Preheat oven to 350°F.
*Slice the chicken breasts in half lengthwise, then half again horizontally to create 8, thin, triangle-shaped pieces of chicken.
*In a small bowl, stir together the flour and spices. (Add a pinch of salt to the flour mix to bring out some of the other flavors.)
*In a second small bowl, whisk together the egg and milk.
*Heat oil in a large skillet on top of a medium-hot stove.
*Open the Pillsbury Grands! and place them on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. (Follow Pillsbury instructions.)
*While your biscuits are baking, dip the chicken pieces into the egg and milk mixture, then into the spiced flour mixture.
*Fry in the hot oil. (To know when oil is hot, stick a wooden utensil in it to see if it bubbles or measure it to 350 degrees.)
*Whisk together the melted butter and honey.
*Remove the biscuits from the oven and use a basting brush to spread melted honey butter on top of the biscuits.
*Slice each biscuit in half, then place a piece of cooked chicken in the center.
*Serve with orange juice and enjoy!
