Honey Butter Chicken Bacon Biscuits – Breakfast for Dinner is a Win on School Nights!

My family loves the honey butter chicken biscuit from Whataburger, and other chicken biscuits from the local fast food joint. Since we like breakfast for dinner, I decided to easily recreate this recipe at home, and add bacon, because of course I am going to add bacon. This is the ultimate comfort food! 

This recipe is a winner for game days or busy school nights. It all comes together quickly and easily and you can make it all in your oven or air fryer.

I picked up lightly breaded chicken strips because I find that the breading on frozen chicken strips can tend to be a little overwhelming and especially with the biscuits, you just don’t want too much breading. But, whatever you have on hand will do. You can also choose to make your own chicken strips and that will definitely taste better but you will spend a lot longer in the kitchen, too.

I also used thick bacon, but you could use thin. Again, you want something that will stand up to the thickness of the biscuit. I used frozen Pillsbury biscuits, but you can use a homemade buttermilk biscuit recipe or canned, even. These are just most like the fast food biscuits. We really like a good flaky buttermilk biscuit.

If you truly want to recreate the Whataburger honey butter chicken biscuit, you will need to soak the biscuit in the honey butter sauce.  Ok not really, but a light brush on top is likely what they do. If you like buttery biscuits, for sure drizzle some extra honey butter on top of the biscuits or at the very least, brush the tops with a stick of butter.

If you are making a large batch of this honey butter chicken biscuit recipe, make sure you have enough chicken tenders and store-bought biscuits.

Create an assembly area for your chicken sandwiches on a work surface covered with a wire rack or parchment paper. You want to assemble right away and quickly so they will still be warm when serving.

Feel free to play around with flavors and customize your biscuit to your liking by adding hot sauce, cayenne pepper, hot honey, maple syrup instead of honey, or garlic powder.

    7. Soften 1/2 cup of butter in microwave.
