Spicy Chicken Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches
If I were still single, taking me to Chick-Fil-A on a date would be totally appropriate.
Let’s talk about these Pepper Jack Biscuit and Chicken Breakfast Sandwiches.
I know Chick-Fil-A has been around for a long time. However, while I was growing up it never was in my neighborhood or close by. Because of how seldom I saw someone with a sandwich from there, I assumed that it was expensive or maybe only a few in the world. It wasn’t until I was in college where Chick-Fil-A was a normal option. I don’t remember the first time I had one of those awesome sandwiches, but I know I was hooked. I must’ve eaten Chick-Fil-A, at least, once a week with the sugar free lemonade! Because Chick-Fil-A was only offered at the campus it didn’t have the full menu. I think there was only the sandwiches, salads, and cookies. I can’t remember. It was only when I moved close to an actual Chick-Fil-A restaurant to try their breakfast sandwiches.
Let me tell you something right now, the first time I had their Chicken Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches drizzled in a little honey, I melted. I mean I literally became Hot Chocolate in a chair (you like that didn’t you). It was amazing! I think I had them all. With the chicken of course. I’ve tried the Spicy Chicken Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches, the Chicken Multi-Grain Bagel, and the regular Chicken Biscuit, and the Chicken Biscuit mini’s. I think I tried all of the breakfast sandwiches at that awesome place. Chick-Fil-A is the only fast food restaurant where I have to really exercise self-control and just not go often. Everything is so good and let’s not even talk about the service. I mean, where does the hiring staff find its people? Is it me, or does Chick-Fil-A have the most annoyingly nicest people ever! Nothing is served cold or half-assed! NOT TO MENTION, they have freaking events there and a damn cow who, on occasion greets you at the door! For me, this is one of the greatest places on earth next to my kitchen.
Okay, let’s talk about my kitchen and how the owner of Chick-Fil-A would’ve loved to been invited this past weekend. For months I have wanted to make a spicy type of biscuit with peppers. I don’t know why I just did. I sat on the idea for months and did nothing with it. Well we all know that Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sunday’s (bummer). So I decided to make my chicken biscuit that sure did fix my craving! These, my friends, are Pepper Jack Cheese Chicken Biscuit Sandwich! These biscuits are full of pepper jack cheese, served with delicious buttermilk fried chicken breast, and hot pepper jelly. I could’ve eaten two of these at once but it was around lunch time and I didn’t want to ruin my appetite for dinner. What I can say is if you ever are in need of a chicken biscuit and Chick-Fil-A is not open, these sandwiches will give you your fix.
Here is the thing I like the most the food I share with you guys and that is you don’t have to follow my recipe exactly the way I have prepared it for you. With these biscuits, you can add coleslaw, use a different type of cheese, or even try a different type of jelly. I want you to get creative and make these biscuits your own. One thing I have done was wrapped them in aluminum foil for my husband to heat them in the morning before he goes to school. I am really hoping they turn out really good in the mornings because that will give me more of a reason to continue making them. Okay, I think I am just about done talking about chicken and biscuits. I really hope you like them and I will find a reason to share them with your friends and family.

- Begin to heat the oil in a shallow frying pan.
- Take the flour, salt, and pepper and whisk into a bowl. Take the pieces of soaked chicken breast pieces and dredge through the flour shaking the excess. Fry on both sides for 5-7 minutes. Remove and place on a plate lined with paper towel.
