06 Mar Secret Recipe for Savory Chicken Biscuits Revealed
660 at The Angler’s new executive chef, Matthew Medrano, shares with us his secret recipe for the savory fried chicken biscuits topped with sriracha honey – they provide a treat that’s perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Let’s start with the biscuits. First we’ll need:
- Four cups of all purpose flour
- Two cups of buttermilk
- 2/3 cup of shortening
- Two TBSP baking powder
- Two TBSP white sugar
- Two TSP of salt
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees while you prepare the mix for the biscuits. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Cut in the shortening while whisking the mix until it resembles a coarse meal. Gradually add buttermilk until the dough pulls away from the bowl, now that the dough is complete move it to a floured surface and knead it 15 – 20 times. Finally, roll the dough out to two inches of thickness, cut out the ideal shape of the biscuits and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake them for 13 – 15 minutes until the edges begin to brown.
For the buttermilk chicken breast, slightly pound the chicken breast until tender then mix it with spiced buttermilk and season with: cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper & kosher salt and allow it to marinate for 12 – 24 hours.
For the savory, sweet and spicy sriracha honey we will need:
- Two cups of honey
- ¾ cup of sriracha
- Pinch of kosher salt
Mix all the ingredients until they are evenly incorporated.
After slicing the golden-brown biscuits, place the fried chicken on one of the halves. Then drizzle the sriracha honey over the chicken and top with the other half of the biscuit. Serve on a plate or place on a platter for large gatherings.
