Southern Fried Chicken Biscuit Sandwiches

Simple, spicy fried chicken on biscuits with spicy maple butter!

Ingredients

2
large chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2
cups all-purpose flour
1
tablespoon chili powder
1
tablespoon kosher salt
1
tablespoon black pepper
1
cup buttermilk
1
teaspoon paprika
2
cups canola oil, for frying
1
package Pillsbury™ Grands!™ biscuits
1/4
cup unsalted butter, softened
1
tablespoon maple syrup
1/4
teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions

  • 1 Bake Pillsbury™ Grands!™ biscuits according to package directions.
  • 2 For chicken, slice each breast horizontally down the center to butterfly it open. Then slice each into 4 even pieces.
  • 3 In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, chili powder, kosher salt, and pepper. In a second bowl, stir together buttermilk and paprika.
  • 4 Working with one chicken piece at a time, dredge in the flour mixture, then transfer to the buttermilk mixture, then back to the flour. Coat each piece well with flour and let sit on a plate. Repeat with all chicken pieces.
  • 5 Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat until it reaches 350ºF. Fry chicken in batches for 4-5 minutes per side until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  • 6 When chicken is done frying, transfer to a paper towel to drain.
  • 7 In a small bowl, mash together butter, syrup, and cayenne.
  • 8 To make a sandwich, split open a biscuit and smear on some maple butter. Place a piece of fried chicken between the biscuit halves and chow down!

Step By Step  

Easy fried chicken nestled in flaky biscuits that are smothered with spicy maple butter. Life at its best.

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Nobody will turn down these chicken biscuit sandwiches!

Sometimes a tiny thing takes an already good recipe to the next level. In this case, you would be completely fine making delicious fried chicken and putting it between a flaky biscuit. That would be good. 

But the real secret to making these golden brown sandwiches great is the maple butter. It’s just three simple ingredients, but that maple butter melting into the biscuit makes a savory/sweet sandwich that just might change your sandwich game forever. 

Frying the chicken is easy for this recipe. The one trick is that you don’t want the chicken pieces to be too big. One large chicken breast can be sliced into four even pieces so they fit nicely on a biscuit later.

As far as the breading goes for the chicken, keep it simple. I use flour mixed with some spices and buttermilk mixed with paprika. That’s all you need.

Dredge each chicken piece in flour, then buttermilk, then back in the flour. Fry the chicken pieces for 4-5 minutes per side until they are golden brown and delicious. You don’t need a lot of oil for this since you flip the chicken after 4-5 minutes.

OK. Here’s the butter business. Like I said, it’s easy, but life changing. Mash it all together!

You could sandwich these fried beauties between any biscuit, honestly, but I just baked up a batch of Pillsbury Grands! biscuits. They turned out nice and and flaky.

Assembly is pretty straightforward. A good smear of the butter stuff and a piece of chicken is all you need to make a sandwich! 

You could either make them in advance so people could grab and go, or they could assemble their own!

If you’re serving these as a meal, you’ll probably want to make sure people can have more than one as they're kind of on the small side. And they're really good!
