For Each Sandwich:

  • 1 Honey Butter Biscuit recipe below
  • 1 tbsp Honey Butter
  • 1 Aldi Red Bag Chicken Breast
  • 1 tbsp Hot Honey Sauce if you like it spicy


For the Biscuits:

  • Heat your oven to 425°F.
  • Mix together 3 cups of flour, 1 big spoonful of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 tablespoon of sugar in a bowl.
  • Grate 1 stick of cold butter and mix it into the dry ingredients until it looks like sand.
  • Slowly stir in the buttermilk until the dough comes together.
  • Use your hands to bring the dough together, but don’t overwork it.
  • Put the dough on a floured surface. If it’s too dry, add a bit more buttermilk.
  • Shape the dough into a long oval and fold it into 3 layers.
  • Use a floured rolling pin to flatten it out, then cut out 6-7 biscuits.
  • Put them in a buttered skillet and top each with a bit of butter.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until they’re golden brown.
  • When they’re done, spread some honey butter on top.

For the Honey Butter:

  • Mix the softened butter and honey together until smooth.

For the Sandwich:

  • While the biscuits are baking, cook the chicken breast in an air fryer at 400°F for 10-12 minutes.
  • Split the biscuits in half and spread honey butter on each side.
  • Put the cooked chicken breast and a drizzle of hot honey on one half.
  • Put the other half of the biscuit on top to make a sandwich.
  • Serve with extra honey butter for dipping. Enjoy your meal!


  • Dry the chicken with a paper towel so the batter sticks better.
  • Give the chicken a little tap to shake off the extra coating.
  • Don’t put too much chicken in the pan at once, or it won’t cook right.
  • Use ready-made biscuit dough for a faster version.
  • Make it spicy by mixing hot sauce into the buttermilk before dipping the chicken.

How Do I Store Leftover Honey Butter Chicken Biscuits?

How Do I Store Leftover Honey Butter Chicken Biscuits?

Put the extra honey butter chicken biscuits in a sealed container and keep them in the fridge for up to 3 days. When you want to have them again, just wrap one in a damp paper towel and microwave it for about a minute. If it’s not warm enough, microwave it a little longer in 30-second steps until it’s heated through.

What Kind of Butter Should I Use For Biscuits?

It’s best to use unsalted butter for baking so you can control the saltiness. But some recipes might use a little salted butter too.

Can I Use Oil Instead of Butter For Biscuits?

No, it’s not a good idea. Oil won’t work well in recipes where you need to cut cold, solid butter into the dry ingredients, like biscuits. It can make the dough too wet. Stick to butter for biscuits, scones, and pie pastry.
