Hello my beautiful buttermilk chicken biscuit with blackberry habanero sauce! Let’s start this off strong- I love you! So I love my Grandma’s Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits. And I love crispy chicken tenders. And when you put the two together and top it with a spicy blackberry habanero sauce- it becomes a whole new thing.

Ever so often I CRAVE biscuits. I know — you too right? My grandma always said you can’t trust someone who doesn’t like biscuits, bread and babies. Now that I think about it my grandma is a carb-o-colic. I love her, bless her heart. So I thought that nothing is more fun than a Buttermilk Chicken Biscuit with Blackberry Habanero Sauce.

I mean, that right there = PERFECTION!!! I usually top then with honey butter for breakfast or for dinner. Heck let’s be for real I wake up thinking if it is a god idea to make a tray of biscuits. Then because I literally have no self control I make them but then I justify it by coming up with new recipes. So I decided to invite a few friends over for a chicken and biscuit love fest.

So when I started to think up this sauce… all I wanted was something that was spicy. So it started because I had some super sweet blackberries in the fridge. And my mom picked some habanero from her tree. And I live in Florida so we have TONS of oranges. I put them in a pot and added a lil sugar, a lil balsamic vinegar, a lil thyme and what happened next was mind blowing! Now not only am I dreaming of biscuits but now I’m dreaming of blackberry hot sauce too.

These chicken biscuits sandwiches are kind of one of those breakfast, lunch or dinner meals. I made these for dinner but I am having them for breakfast… right now! Yup, I can hardly contain myself. All I can say is the sauce… the sauce… the sauce!

So my girls had them topped with honey butter. Isn’ it pretty?

I love when the lines between breakfast lunch and dinner gets blurred and what I end up with is greatness. Nothing super fancy, but does it really need to be? NO! make it fun- make it delicious- make it tonight!

Buttermilk Chicken Biscuit with Blackberry Habanero Sauce

Servings 4
Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 40 mins
Total Time 1 hr

Ingredients

  • Blackberry pepper sauce
  • 8 oz Blackberries
  • 3 habanero seeds included unless you want it milder
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup balsamic pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 orange peeled and segmented
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • Chicken
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken tenders
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cheyenne pepper
  • 2 minced garlic clove about 1 tablespoon
  • 2 cups flour
  • vegetable or canola oil for frying
  • Buttermilk Biscuits
  • cups all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoon salted butter melted for afterwards

Instructions

  • Blackberry Habanero Sauce
  • Add the ingredients for the hot sauce to a blender or food processor and blend until semi- smooth. Add the sauce to a sauce pan and bring to boil. Reduce to a simmer and simmer 15 minutes or until thickened slightly. Check every 5 minutes to make sure the balsamic vinegar doesn’t burn. Allow to cool completely. Store in a jar for a week in the fridge.
  • Grandma’s Buttermilk Biscuit
  • Preheat oven to 425. Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Transfer to a food processor. Cut butter into cubes and add to flour, then pulse 6 or 7 times until the mixture resembles rough crumbs. (Alternatively, cut butter into flour in the mixing bowl using a grater, fork or a pastry cutter.) Return dough to bowl, add buttermilk and stir with a fork until it forms a rough ball (don’t worry if it is a little sticky).
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it into a rough rectangle, about an inch thick. Fold it over and gently roll it down again. Repeat 6 times.
  • Gently roll out the dough some more, so that it forms a rectangle. Cut dough into biscuits using a floured glass or biscuit cutter. Do not twist cutter when cutting; this will crimps the edges of the biscuit causing it not to rise. If you have scraps just reform a rectangle and cut additional biscuits.
  • Place biscuits on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown, approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Serves 6 to 8.
  • Buttermilk Fried Chicken
  • Optional but recommended: Sprinkle chicken tender with Cheyenne pepper, chopped garlic and Paprika place in a ziplock bag. Store in the fridge overnight. If you can’t marinate overnight, add the paprika, cheyenne pepper, garlic, and salt to chicken tenders.
  • Heat oil to 350 degrees F. in a cast iron skillet, no more than 1/2 full with oil. Add the flour to a shallow bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs and buttermilk together. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg/buttermilk mixture, and then dip 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.
