Southern Chicken and Biscuit Sandwich

Southern Chicken and Biscuit Sandwich

Sometimes you just crave these comfort foods, and southern food being my favorite type of food I had been craving this sandwich for some time. My commitment to cook my own meals and know exactly what I am putting into my food and body makes creating these foods a lot of fun. I researched chicken recipes for a while, and I wanted a chicken that more resembled the chicken at Chic-Fil-A then fried and battered chicken, and I think that I created a recipe that is very close.

If you're going to indulge in baked goods, fried foods and overall indulgent comfort food then I think the only way to do it is to make it from scratch, then you won't feel quite so guilty!


4 chicken breasts
2 cups flour
3 TBL powdered sugar
2 TBL Paprika
1 TSP Cayenne Pepper
1 TBL Garlic Powder
1 TBL Onion Powder
Salt and Pepper
2 Cups Pickle Juice
3 eggs
Oil for frying
For Sandwich:
Biscuits (Best Ever Biscuits)
Pickle Slices
Honey Mustard


Cut chicken breasts into chunks, and pound until even thickness

Place in bowl or ziplock bag and pour in pickle juice. Let marinate 1-4 hours. This is a very strong vinegar mixture so I wouldn't let it sit much longer. In fact I used store bought pickles instead of my homemade canned pickles for this very reason, the brine is much stronger than mine.
Mix up dry spices.
Pour off most of the pickle juice and add 3 beaten eggs

Heat up frying oil to 375 degrees.

Take chicken pieces and dredge into flour mixture, then place in your oil. Let brown on both sides cooking for 4-5 minutes per side. You can keep your pieces in a 200 degree oven until they are all finished frying.

To Assemble:

Take your warm biscuit and split in half, then put the honey mustard on one half and a few pickle slices on the other. Place chicken and close up your sandwich. Delicious!
