There isn’t anything better then good comfort food, and this is definitely one of those foods. Kentucky Fried Chicken’s biscuits are versatile, you can butter it up, put a little bit of honey on it, make a chicken pot pie, and as always fantastic with chicken. I found found a recipe and tweaked and voila, we have biscuits as good as Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Kentucky Fried Chicken Biscuits Recipe
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
Preheat oven to 425ºF.
Sift together flour, salt, sugar and baking powder into mixing bowl.
Make a well in the flour mix and add the milk.
Add shortening and begin kneading with hands (to cut in) the vegetable shortening and flour in the milk until thoroughly mixed.
Add milk, if needed to form, and mix.
Turn onto floured board, and knead gently 6 to 8 times.
Pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness.
Cut into biscuits.
Place on baking sheet and brown in oven 10-13 minutes.
Makes about 10-12 biscuits.
What makes this recipe so great is that it is freezable. You make up the dough, cut your biscuits and lay them out on a baking sheet with parchament paper. Place the tray in the freezer for a couple hours so they can freeze and put them in a freezer safe ziploc bag, but before you put them in the freezer make sure you write the cook time on the bag (I have made that mistake before).
