Chicken Biscuits for Breakfast!

I had about 20 minutes to make breakfast before the guys came up from the barn this morning……..yes, they are extremely spoiled! Ha! Between my mother-in-law and I, they get a hot breakfast every morning. Of course, when they’ve been working since 4:00am, they’re pretty ravenous by the time 8:30 rolls around!

I was tired of the usual bacon, ham, or sausage deal when I opened the fridge and remembered that I had some chicken breasts that I needed to use before they went bad. Thus, the birth of the chicken biscuit! I didn’t measure out my ingredients so here’s my best estimate for the recipe. 🙂 They were delicious!

Chicken Nuggets for Chicken Biscuits

1 1/2 large chicken breasts (cut into chunks)
1 egg, beaten

  2. Cut chicken breasts into 1 1/2 inch (or smaller) chunks.
  3. Beat egg in small bowl.
  4. Stir together the flour, powdered sugar, salt and pepper in another small bowl.
  5. Dip chicken chunks into beaten egg.
