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.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
