Southern Fried Chicken Biscuit Sandwiches
Updated May 22, 2017
Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits
large chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
tablespoon chili powder
tablespoon black pepper
cups canola oil, for frying
can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Refrigerated Biscuits
cup unsalted butter, softened
teaspoon cayenne pepper
Bake Pillsbury™ Grands!™ biscuits according to package directions.
For chicken, slice each breast horizontally down the center to butterfly it open. Then slice each into 4 even pieces.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, chili powder, kosher salt, and pepper. In a second bowl, stir together buttermilk and paprika.
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.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat until it reaches 350°F. Fry chicken in batches for 4-5 minutes per side until they are golden brown and cooked through.
When chicken is done frying, transfer to a paper towel to drain.
In a small bowl, mash together butter, syrup, and cayenne.
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!
