Chick-Fil-A Chicken Biscuits Recipe:

We visit the Chick-Fil-A fast food restaurant frequently. My family loves their famous Chick-Fil-A sandwich, but we have been getting their Chicken Biscuits as we head out of town.

We love to recreate our favorite restaurant recipes so it saves us time and money. This Copycat Chick-Fil-A Chicken Biscuit is no exception. We love to make this breakfast sandwich.

We made it easy by using canned biscuits and adding the fried breaded chicken. It is delicious and so easy to make.

If you love Chick-fil-a breakfast, try our Chick-Fil-A Breakfast Burrito Recipe or the Chick-Fil-A Chick-N-Minis.
