Chicken & Biscuit Sandwich with Hot Honey is a perfect bite of sweet and savory… for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Breakfast is one of our favorite meals; Jackie and I like to eat typical breakfast food for any meal of the day. It can be as simple as a bowl of Grape Nuts cereal, topped with milk and heated slightly. This is not my favorite food, but I like the fact that Jackie likes it, and it makes me smile to think of her enjoying this cereal that I do not have the same affinity for. My kind of breakfast would definitely include potatoes (if they are available). If not, I usually eat leftovers from dinner: pizza, pasta, soup or pretty much anything in the refrigerator.
This Chicken & Biscuit Sandwich with Hot Honey is making its way into the rotation though, ever since we found our biscuit recipe that we love. We seem to have biscuits quite often, and turning this beautiful bread into a sandwich seemed like a no-brainer. What we love is that the chicken is easy to prepare (it can be made a day or two ahead and heated in the oven while your eggs and bacon are cooking). The flavors are simple but round this sandwich out perfectly by adding bacon and a hot honey, complemented perfectly by the creaminess of the egg yolk. My guess is that you will like this Chicken & Biscuit Sandwich recipe, and that you will discover many new ways to serve it. We would love it if you would share those ideas with us able and please share your pictures as well. For breakfast, lunch or dinner, this makes for one great-tasting meal.
