At our house we refer to it as “Quickie Chickie”, that famous drive through chicken that comes home to you in the iconic red and white box.¬† Did you know that the very first Kentucky Fried Chicken was opened here in Utah?¬† Yup.¬† Biscuits and all.
Speaking of biscuits, that was one of my most favorite aspects of the entire KFC experience.
Well, it was until I learned that it takes over 50 ingredients to create a Kentucky Fried Chicken Biscuit.¬† Yes, you did read that right.
Yum.¬† I love me some anti-foaming agents in my food, don’t you?
Today I am going to share a biscuit recipe that is not only tastes Better Than KFC, it’s super easy to make and because it uses yeast, you can mix up the flours you use.¬† This recipe calls for butter (organic if you like) instead of shortening.
While you aren’t going to want to eat these everyday, when you do eat them you know you are consuming actual food, rather something filled with artificial flavors.
My Easy Biscuit Recipe
The Method for my Easy Biscuit Recipe
I have to tell you, half way through this process I received a text reminding me that I was a hour late picking up my Zaycon chicken.¬† *faint*¬† I had it on my calendar for the next day. So I dropped everything, called for the Blue Eyed girl to help me get Parker onto his smaller oxygen bottle and drove like a bat out of Hades down to pick up my chicken.
80 pounds of chicken is more than you think.¬† I was up all night getting it vacuum sealed and in the freezer.¬† But boy is it nice to know I have chicken, purchased at a killer price in my freezer.
Anyway, my biscuits usually look a little nicer.¬† But that disruption meant that I had to punch them down and re-roll them.¬† They still tasted fantastic though.
PS: When you make your own easy biscuit recipe, you can also use your own real butter on them AND your own real honey instead of the colored high frutose corn syrup KFC hands out.
