This is my rendition of Nashville hot chicken, served as a sandwich with biscuits. To save time, I’ve used refrigerator biscuits. I’m not a fan of spicy hot, but this still packs some heat!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) can 8-count jumbo refrigerator biscuits
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons chicken and pork rub (such as Adkins®)
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, thinly sliced into 8 pieces
  • ½ cup cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2. 2 Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 13 to 17 minutes. Set aside.
  3. 3 Mix buttermilk, egg, sriracha, salt, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper together in a shallow bowl. Mix flour and chicken and pork rub together in a separate shallow bowl. Dip chicken into buttermilk mixture then dredge in flour mixture; shake off excess.
  4. 4 Heat oil and butter in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Fry coated chicken in the hot skillet until golden and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
  5. 5 Mix sriracha and agave nectar together in a bowl; adjust heat level to suit your preference.
  6. 6 Slice biscuits in half and place 1 piece of chicken on each bottom half. Place about 1 tablespoon sauce on each piece of chicken and top with the remaining biscuit halves.

Reviews

  1. I used Tobasco sauce instead of Siracha and Old Bay's for the seasoning in the flour dredge. Still had some kick and lots of flavor. I also used my favorite biscuit recipe rather than the canned ones. My husband enjoyed them a lot. Definitely will be making these again.
  2. I loved it. It was rich with flavor. I soaked my chicken in the buttermilk and seasonings overnight It smelled so good after frying the chicken.
  3. Way too much salt! But very yummy other than that!
  4. It was a hit at my house, but my kids were not of fan of the sweetness of the sauce. I thought it was good but I ended up just mixing melted butter and sriracha and drizzling it on top instead. Next time I will try it with the honey hot sauce.
  5. These sandwiches are very tasty. I suggest chicken tenders for simplicity and convenience. I also feel from this experience that the sauce and flour mixture ought to be completed BEFORE frying the chicken and baking the biscuits.
