Chicken Biscuit Recipe: A Step-by-Step Home Recipe

Creating a Chicken Biscuit inspired by Waffle House at home can bring the flavors of the popular diner-style restaurant right into your kitchen. Here’s a recipe to help you replicate or even customize that experience.


For the Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (thinly sliced or pounded thin)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Oil for frying

For the Biscuits:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (cold and cubed)
  • 1 cup buttermilk


Prepare the Chicken:

  1. Marinate Chicken: In a bowl, combine the buttermilk, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken breasts, making sure each piece is covered with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for best results.
  2. Coat Chicken: After marinating, remove chicken from the buttermilk and dredge each piece in flour until well coated.
  3. Fry Chicken: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the chicken pieces until golden brown and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Set aside on a wire rack or paper towels to drain excess oil.

Bake the Biscuits:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
  3. Cut in Butter: Add the cold, cubed butter to the flour mixture and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add Buttermilk: Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Stir until just combined.
  5. Form Biscuits: Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently pat it to about 1-inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut out biscuit rounds. Reform the dough as needed until all of it is used.
  6. Bake: Place biscuits on a lined baking sheet and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Assemble the Chicken Biscuits:

  1. Slice Biscuits: Once the biscuits are cooled enough to handle, slice them horizontally.
  2. Add Chicken: Place a piece of the fried chicken between the biscuit halves.
  3. Serve: Enjoy your Chicken Biscuit as is, or add your favorite condiments like honey, mayonnaise, or hot sauce.


  • For extra flavor, consider adding spices to the flour used for coating the chicken.
  • The biscuits can also be brushed with melted butter before and immediately after baking for a richer taste.

By following these steps, you can enjoy a Waffle House-inspired Chicken Biscuit that’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, or any meal of the day.
