Fried Chicken and Cajun Biscuits

It's time for some comfort food. I love fried chicken, but I always thought it was too hard to make at home. Then I found this recipe. It's amazing!

To go with the chicken, I made some biscuits based on a recipe guessed it....The Kitchen Bible. I added some Cajun seasoning to complement the fried chicken. 

Pull-apart Cajun Biscuits
Makes 16 biscuits

2 1/3 cups of flour
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
dash of cloves
6 tbsp butter, chilled, cut into cubes
1 1/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and seasoning. Cut butter into the flour mixture, until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Stir in the buttermilk to make a soft dough. Form biscuits with your hands, or use a spoon to drop biscuits into an unbuttered cake pan. Place each biscuit next to each other, barely touching. Bake for 18 minutes. 

I love pulling these apart! Serve warm with fried chicken and coleslaw for a comforting homemade dinner in less than thirty minutes. Beware of food coma!
