So I wanted to make you something inspired by my favorite Subway sandwich: the Chicken Pizziola.

There’s just something about meat on meat on sauce on cheese on bread. You know?

What’s your favorite Subway sandwich?

I remember when they discontinued the Chicken Pizziola sub, and I would go in and ask for it anyway. Luckily, they’d make it for me!

Since so many people have made and loved this Oven-Fried Chicken recipe, I decided to use that as a base. It has such incredible flavor! And I thought it would be super easy just to top it with some pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni and pop it back in the oven, and slide it on a fresh garlib herb biscuit. Because biscuits go so well with fried chicken and they are so easy to make little!

Also, because I was too lazy to make you little buns. Just saying.

Biscuits are so super easy, and you can even make them ahead of time, flash freeze them and just bake them right before you need them.

So since we only had about 3.7 hours of daylight in the winter (okay, I exaggerate — a little), I’d gotten into the habit of just making a big lunch when there was a recipe I wanted to try out for the blog.

So I made these one day for the hubs and he says after his first bite, “Ash, these are really good. It’s like pub food.”

So I guess if Subway and pub food had a delicious, made from scratch, saucy, cheesy baby, this would be it.

Ingredients

Garlic Herb Biscuits

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cubed
  • 3/4 – 1 cup milk

Oven-Fried Chicken

  • 3 chicken breasts sliced lengthwise and across (so you have a small, thin piece of chicken – I cut each breast into 4 pieces)
  • 4-5 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp seasoning salt I use Lawry’s
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp paprika

Sliders:

  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • 2 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish if desired

Instructions

  • Garlic Herb Biscuits:Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, and oregano.
  • Add butter and cut in with a pastry cutter, fork, or even your hands, until crumbly (pea-sized chunks). Gradually stir in milk, just so that the dough comes together, but don’t overwork the dough.
  • (At this point you can wrap with plastic wrap and set in the fridge to finish later) Roll dough into ½” disc and cut out 10 2” circles with a biscuit or cookie cutter*. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
  • Oven-Fried Chicken: You should have 10 thin, small pieces of chicken from your 3 breasts. You want them about the same size as your biscuits will be (about 2” across).
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place butter on baking sheet and stick in the oven for the butter to melt as it’s preheating.
  • Combine flour, salt, seasoning salt, pepper and paprika in a large Ziploc bag. Seal and shake to combine. Add your chicken pieces and shake until well coated.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and place chicken pieces on it. Bake for 7-8 minutes, flip carefully, and bake for 7-8 minutes more. Check with a meat thermometer to ensure a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • SlidersWhile your chicken is cooking, slice your biscuits in half. Place on a baking sheet. Pick which will be the bottom of your slider, and spread about 1 tbsp of pizza on it.
  • When the chicken is done cooking, preheat the broiler.
  • Place the chicken on top of the sauce on your bottom biscuit. Top the chicken with another tablespoon of sauce, a slice of pepperoni, and cheese. Broil for 2-3 minutes (watching carefully) until cheese is melted. Your top biscuits will toast nicely, but if they begin getting too dark, just remove them from the pan and set aside.
  • Sprinkle with parsley, top with your top biscuit and serve.

Notes

*At this point you can flash freeze, then place in a large freezer bag and store in the freezer until needed. You may have to add 2-4 minutes to the baking time, but you will bake right from frozen.

    Hi Ashley! We live in TN and here in the South there is nothing better than chicken and biscuits! I have to pass this on to my son. He loves all things pizza, even after having spent a number of years working for a well known chain, starting as a waiter at sixteen and ending up managing three locations. He will thank you!
