You remember last week?

Buttermilk Chicken Biscuit with Habanero Peach Hot Sauce + Honey Butter | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

When I told you I was really feelin the southern foods? Yeah, well, if it wasn’t clear then, it should be pretty clear now. I mean, a buttermilk fried chicken biscuit? Peach hot sauce?

HONEY BUTTER?? 🙂

In my head, it doesn’t get more southern than that. Then again, I am not at all southern, so southerners feel free to let me know just how far north I really am. I am open to improving my southern cooking skills because I feel like this summer is going to be heavily inspired by the south.

So far we’ve got corn pudding, grilled peaches and sweet tea in this form and this form.

Oh, and biscuits. On a huge biscuit kick. Got to love em…but only homemade.

Buttermilk Chicken Biscuit with Habanero Peach Hot Sauce + Honey Butter | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvestSo let me just tell you about the exciting things going on in my life.

As of yesterday (June 2) the leaves on our trees finally bloomed to the point where there are light green leaves. I expect that within the next few days they will become very green and I am SO happy about it. Looking out my kitchen sink window is like a breath of fresh air now. No more bare tree, snow and or dirt. YESSS! Sunshine and daytime temps in the 70’s. YESSS!

Ok, I literally just spent the last five minutes looking through the newly published photos of Caitlyn Jenner…

Apparently I get distracted easily.

Which is probably why I burnt off all the hairs on my arm yesterday while mindlessly snap chatting and cooking at the same time. It’s cool though, my arm hairs where too long anyway. They needed a good torch for summer.

And I am done.

Is it lame that this is all the exciting stuff I have to share? Yes, probably, BUT maybe soon I can talk about the goats again. We were supposed to get them last weekend, but unfortunately the woman we had planned on buying them from sold all her goats even though we had said we were coming last weekend. NOO. Now we have to wait 2-3 more weeks unless we can find another farm.

Good news is, there are other goats in the sea (or a pasture), so I bet we will find another farm. It’s gonna happen. I swear. Their little home is all built and the fences are up. We just need the goats…

Then maybe I can make goat’s milk fried chicken. Is that even a thing? Maybe goat milk biscuits would be better? Yeah, that sounds better, I’ll have to give that recipe a try.

For today though, buttermilk works great, and it’s a bit more accessible, so cool!

I actually used the same recipe for the biscuits that I used in the cobbler I shared not too long ago. I just love the swirls of cream cheese. I swear, those biscuits are SO GOOD. And with honey butter?? I mean, that right there = PERFECTION.

But me being me, I went and took things a step or two further. Fried chicken just seemed like a logical next step. Then obviously you need to add hot sauce, but since I was going all out southern, I figured why not make it a super spicy, kind of sweet peach hot sauce.

Jeez, just writing it out sounds good.

And you know what the the best part is? These buttermilk chicken biscuits are kind of one of those breakfast, lunch or dinner meals. It would surely be a most perfect hangover breakfast, but at the same time, awesome for lunch and dinner too. Got to love an all-purpose meal!

Ingredients

Cream Cheese Biscuits

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sticks cold salted butted 12, or unsalted with a pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 8 ounces cream cheese cubed

Habanero Peach Hot Sauce

  • 4 ripe peaches chopped
  • 4 habanero chili peppers seed if you would like a mild hot sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Buttermilk Fried Chicken

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken tenders
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • vegetable or canola oil for frying

Honey Butter

  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened, 1 stick
  • 1/4 cup honey

Instructions

Cream Cheese Biscuits

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Whisk until combined. Using a fork, pastry blender or your hands, add butter pieces to the flour and mix until coarse little crumbles remain. Whisk together the buttermilk and honey and pour into the flour. Stir with a spoon until just combined, trying not to overmix. Use your hands if needed to bring the dough together. Fold in the cream cheese. Use a 1/4 cup measure to drop the batter onto a greased cookie sheet or press the dough on to a sheet of parchment paper or cutting board, then use a biscuit cutter to shape the dough into rounds.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden.

Habanero Peach Hot Sauce

  1. Add the ingredients for the hot sauce to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add the sauce to a sauce pan and bring to boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and simmer 15-20 minutes or until thickened slightly. Allow to cool completely and then store in an glass jar in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

Buttermilk Fried Chicken

  1. Heat oil to 350 degrees F. in a deep, heavy-bottomed pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.
  2. Season the chicken with the seasoned salt. Add the flour to a shallow bowl or pie plate. In another (medium size) bowl, beat the eggs and buttermilk together.
  3. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg/buttermilk mixture, and then coat well in the flour. Place the chicken in the preheated oil and fry the chicken in the oil until brown, crisp and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined cookie sheet.

Honey Butter

  1. In a bowl mix together the honey and butter until combined.

To serve

  1. Warm the biscuits and then slice in half. Spread each biscuit with honey butter and top with fried chicken. Drizzle with hot sauce. EAT!
