Chicken Biscuit with Bacon, Egg & Cheese

When I serve my husband biscuits for breakfast on the side with eggs and bacon he usually takes it upon himself to split it open and put all the ingredients on the plate between the two sides of the biscuit. 

So last Saturday I decided to do it for him. 

I've definitely been exploring my Southern side lately with different recipes from Bon Appetit Ya'll a new cookbook I'm in love with. I have to admit, I feel my biscuit making skills are getting better. So I decided that I would go it alone and make a fried chicken biscuit and add bacon, egg and cheese to it. I made rather large biscuits from my biscuit recipe to allow for the chicken (I think I made 5 large biscuits instead of 12-15 smaller biscuits) I added Havarti cheese then the bacon and a runny fried egg on top. Make sure you don't use a chicken breast but thinly sliced chicken breast or chicken breast that's been pounded out a little. Just dip the chicken in Italian Bread crumbs. Beat a couple of eggs in a separate bowl. Dip the chicken in the egg and then into the breadcrumbs again. Fry on medium high so that it cooks through and get's crispy on both sides.

This time my husband had to deconstruct it a little to finish it this monster of a biscuit and I'm pretty sure no one had much of an appetite until dinner.

Worth it.

White Lily Biscuit Recipe
2 cups sifted self-rising flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup very cold unsalted butter
2/3 cups cold buttermilk

Heat oven to 500°F.
Sift flour and measure into large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until crumbs are the size of peas. Blend in just enough milk with fork until dough leaves sides of bowl.
Knead gently 2 to 3 times on lightly floured surface. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut using floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. ( *I used the largest biscuit cutter in my set)
Place on baking sheet 1 inch apart for crisp sides or almost touching for soft sides.
Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown.
