Garlic Herb Biscuits
3/4– 1 cup milk
3chicken breastssliced lengthwise and across (so you have a small, thin piece of chicken – I cut each breast into 4 pieces)
1tbspseasoning saltI use Lawry's
2cupsshredded mozzarella cheese
Fresh chopped parsley for garnish if desired
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.
*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.
