chicken on a biscuit

I'm such a ground chicken lover. No, Not Chicken Liver, Chicken LOVER! You guys are so silly! ;0)

I'm always on the look out for a fresh new way to make a burger or a wrap. It never occurred to me to use a biscuit for a bun until I jumped over to one of my new favorite blogs called
Sandwich 365. I spotted a pork sandwich over there with a biscuit as a bun and I knew I had to try it!

I actually have a confession to make. Shhhhh! Come closer. I'm in love with Sandwich 365. Please don't tell anyone, especially my husband. It will just be our little secret. Whew! I feel so much better now that I got that off my chest.

So now let's talk about this slider!

slider ingredients

1 lb ground chicken
3/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1 tbsp chopped basil
1 tbsp chopped chives
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp white pepper

Mix all ingredients thoroughly and place into the freezer while you get the biscuits ready. Trust me, it makes the chicken so much easier to work with. (It's much wetter than beef.)

For the biscuits

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp chopped basil
1 tbsp chopped chives
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shortening or butter
3/4-1 cup of plain nonfat yogurt

Combine dry ingredients. Cut in the shortening or butter. Add the yogurt and herbs, stir well.
Place on a floured board and knead 8 times. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Use a glass or biscuit cutter to make 6 inch rounds. Bake in a 425 degree oven about 10 minutes.

Form chicken into 6 inch round patties. Grill or broil to proper poultry temperature.

DSC04965

Place on a biscuit and add a bit of spicy dijon mustard.

You can also add tomato or lettuce if you wish.

I really think this is my new favorite slider! Try it, Try it, you will see!

When I read chicken on a biscuit I thought Chik-fil-A but then I saw your picture and oh wow! so much better than Chik-fil-A!

Palidor said...

I should try this because it looks amazing! The only chicken burgers I've had are those nasty frozen ones in a box. Definitely nowhere near as tasty as yours!

nanny said...

that sounds and looks wonderful....

Mary said...

I love what you've done here. Making the biscuits is definitely going the last mile for your family. I'll bet these were good.

Chow and Chatter said...

That looks so awesome! You have brought chicken on a biscuit to a new level!

Danielle said...

Faith said...

I'll be honest...this looks better than any burger I've ever made! Wow. I'm in luck because I actually have a pound of ground chicken in the freezer!

Cinnamon Girl aka Reeni♥ said...

How delicious!!The chicken sliders look great all on their own. Putting them on a flaky, cheesy biscuit puts them over the top!!

figtree said...

Can it get any betten than this? YUM! I will be making this yummy chicken on a biscuit this week. Figtreeapps

The Chickenless Chick said...

The basil is such an interesting addition... bet it tastes amazing. Will have to try!

Karine said...

Oh year ground chicken is way better than chicken liver... I love your biscuits! It is so original!

Krista said...

If I were not so turned off by the extremist PETA propaganda featured on Sandwich 365's blog, I'd probably enjoy it too. For now, I'll stick with yours. Love your recipe and this "chicken on a biscuit" looks amazing. I love that you made your own biscuit buns. Yum!

Melissa said...

I just had a chicken biscuit yesterday. But it didn't look as good as this!

Southern Grace Gourmet said...

This looks amazing, and I love biscuits!

Katy ~ said...

Terrific idea about the biscuits; they seem to have fallen out of favor, become old fashioned, with the introduction of "newer" breads. I love a good biscuit sandwich. I think you are going to start a wave!

Sandwich looks DELICIOUS! Fabulous, mouth watering pix!!

teresa said...

i haven't even tried it yet, and i'm in love with it too! delicious!

Diana Bauman said...

Kathy B! said...

OMG you are killing me. I should no better than to come around here at lunch time.

This definitely looks like a keeper.

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Katherine Aucoin said...

What a great idea...they are so many flavors to biscuits too so the possibilities are endless.

Stacy Dean said...

awesome! I love your ideas! So great :)

Pam said...

I don't know which I love more the chicken or the biscuit.

Cathy said...

Looks delish, Kim. Will you send me one?

Juliana said...

Wow, the biscuits look so cute and together with the chicken must be so yummie!

You're the second blogger I've seen rave about ground chicken. I've honestly never tried it, but maybe I ought to give it a chance, this does look yummy!

Sandy said...

You are making me very hungry!

Unknown Mami said...

Your blog should come with a warning: DO NOT READ WHILE HUNGRY!

The Mommyologist said...

Alison Russell said...

Definitely want to try the whole wheat biscuits! I have a very odd 17yo - he actually prefers whole wheat to white, and complains when I make white bread- he wants me to make whole wheat instead!

Creative Junkie said...

Yummmmm. Honestly, I think the world would be a much nicer place if we all sprinkled feta cheese on everything.

Tasha - Bellazizas Favorite Things said...

The biscuit alone looks so yum and then you go and add that pattie! Delicious!
Happy SITS Day!

Kim said...

@cheapchichome. I will be trying these! (and passing your blog on to my daughter.) Thanks.

Noelle said...

mmmmmm...i haven't had breakfast yet and this looks delicious! i will definitely give it a try! thanks for the creative cooking idea!

singedwingangel said...

Ok yet another of our favorite staples for dining consumption.. I am constantly looking for a new way to make Chicken appetizing to my family and this fills both their loves.. thanks again for all of your creative cooking that makes it look so easy for those of us pitifully lacking in the inventive area for the kitchen..

Annie @ astonesthrowfrominsanity said...

I am making my grocery list! Yum!

Marie Cole said...

I personally don't eat chicken but they look good regardless. ;)

Jacky said...

Sounds super yummy! =)

happy SITS day!

Small Sprouts said...

Yummy Yummy, Happy Sits Day!

Christine said...

That's one helluva slider! Love it and can't wait to make it:)

BlogBaby said...

It's probably good but how on earth do I get the family to eat it. It looks weird and these people don't do weird looking food.

Any suggestions on how I can make this meal with a distinct cupcake appearance?

Jamie said...

I love that the biscuit was made with whole wheat flour!

Lacie @ Creative Attempts said...

This actually seems like something that even I could make!! Thanks for sharing and I hope you enjoy your SITS day in the sun.

Rook No. 17 said...

Please excuse me while I grab a napkin to clean up the drool induced by this recipe.....okay, that's better. Holy Moly girl! Those look so good! Just as you've endeavored to drive your family crazy by making everything n cupcake form, I'm thinking you very well may have inspired me to serve my family everything on a BISCUIT. I've got biscuits on the brain... Jenn @ rookno17.blogspot.com

Happy SITS DAY!

One Cluttered Brain said...

YUM-O! I think I just drooled on myself because I am salivating over the chicken biscuit. MUST try this soon.

Happy SITS day!

Lady Mama said...

Okay seriously now after reading this post I am officially starving! Those look incredible.

I'm reading this at a really bad time of day. No chance of me eating "lightly" for dinner now. Everything I see is making me so hungry! :-) These look scrumptious.

Mama Kat said...

I'm not letting my husband see your blog...I have a feeling he would leave me and marry someone with your kitchen skillz!

This Full Life said...

I saw the title of this post and thought fried chicken - your slider not only looks more delicious than a slab of fried chicken but it also is so much more healthy. Thanks for the great idea!

Just Playin' said...

Haven't thought of this combination before. I don't use much ground chicken but maybe I should give it a try. Thanks for this one.

Joy said...

This is no time (8:30p) for me to get hungry. Thanks a lot! ;o)

Congrats on your SITS day!

RebeccaMom said...

YUM!

Hoity Toity Baby said...

piecemeal people said...

I've got to be honest here - ground chicken has always kind of skeeved me out. Ground beef? Fine. Ground turkey? No problem. But ground chicken?...Well, after checking out some of your tasty-looking recipes, I *might* just be ready to try it. :)

Kristin said...

OMG, that looks amazing! I love sliders at restaurants but have never tried them myself.

Ma What's 4 dinner said...

This, as always, looks delicious. You come up with the BEST STUFF for ground chicken!!! I worship at your altar of good ideas.
