A Healthier Twist on Chicken in a Biscuit

A burger on the grill is amazing… but that red meat’s not so great for you. Chicken in a biscuit? Also amazing… except that chicken’s fried. So here’s the best of both worlds: A chicken burger on a biscuit. This savory recipe, inspired by one at a favorite restaurant, Bubby’s, uses lean chicken and sneaks some veggies into the patty, too! Serve it on a fluffy biscuit topped with cheese, pickles and honey mustard sauce for the perfect blend between a burger and chicken in a biscuit.
