  • BUBBL’R Cherry Guava Blend’r Antioxidant Sparkling Water
  • 1 ½ lbs. chicken breasts boneless & skinless
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. Italian herb seasoning
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • neutral oil for frying

For the Biscuits

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 6 tbsp. cold butter grated or sliced into cubes
  • ¾ cup buttermilk


For the Fried Chicken

  • Slice the chicken into bite-sized pieces, about 2-3” wide. Place into an air tight container or plastic bag. Pour the buttermilk on top and seal tight. Set in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • Add enough neutral oil to a large pot to be 3-4” deep. Heat the oil to 350F.
  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, seasoning, garlic powder, and baking powder together.
  • Using a slotted spoon, dredge the chicken through the flour mixture to coat well. Place on a separate plate.
  • Fry the chicken in small batches until golden brown on both sides, about 3-5 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the honey and hot sauce together. Generously brush the chicken in the sauce.
  • (If needed to keep warm and crispy: Place a baking rack on top of a baking pan. Place the chicken on the baking rack. Place in the oven at 250F to keep warm up to 25 minutes.)

For the Biscuits

  • Preheat oven to 450F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt together.
  • Add the grated butter. Use a fork or your hands to mix until crumb-like texture.
  • Add the buttermilk and mix until a moist dough.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to ½” thick. Use a 2” cookie cutter or glass to cut the biscuits. Place on the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes, until golden brown on top.
  • To Assemble: Slice the biscuits in half lengthwise, add a fried chicken nugget, then the top half of the biscuit. Serve warm with pickles.
