  • 3½ Tbs baking powder
  • 1 Tbs + 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 Tbs + 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 sticks + ½ Tbs cold unsalted butter, cubed

  • Canola oil for frying

For the butter:

For the biscuits:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Keep all ingredients as cold as possible!
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine both bread and cake flour, baking powder, salt and sugar from the biscuit ingredients.
  3. Using a pastry blender or your hands, cut cold butter into flour mixture until butter is the size of peas.
  4. Add buttermilk and mix with your hands until shaggy. Cover and rest for 20 minutes.
  5. Roll out dough on a floured surface and fold once (to create layers). Roll out again to 1-1¼” thick and cut into 3½” circles.
  6. When cutting biscuits out, DO NOT TWIST CUTTER. Just simply press down and lift cutter back up.
  7. Place biscuits about ½” apart on greased baking sheet and bake until golden brown.

For the chicken:

  1. Heat canola oil to 350°F in a skillet or table-top fryer.
  2. Dredge chicken in seasoned flour, place in egg-wash, then dredge back through flour.
  3. Fry chicken until golden, brown, and delicious (about 4-5 minutes).

For the butter:

  1. Soften butter and mix in Jay D’s Louisiana Molasses Mustard.

Open biscuit up and slather butter on both halves. Place fried chicken breast on biscuit and put the other half of biscuit on top of chicken and enjoy your chicken biscuit sandwich!
