Come closer, dear customer, for a peek inside the curtain; one of our most popular meals, for all these years we've been providing you delicious and easy dinners, is Farmhouse Fried Chicken. Wonder why? (That was sarcasm, dear customer. Now, curtain closed!) We've translated our secret formula for fantastic fried fowl into finger food, with breaded tenders here that can't be beat. Biscuits and slaw make for traditional and tasty sides, and with a dollop of hot honey… wait, what are you doing? Don't lift up that curtain! No, we're not just eating cookies back here, we're doing important culinary things! In this recipe, chicken is fried in oil, which makes it crispy, delicious...and dangerous. Be very careful around hot oil. If any splatters on your skin, run under cool water immediately.

You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Prepare Ingredients and Make Slaw
Trim and thinly slice green onions.
In a mixing bowl, combine slaw mix, ⅔ the sour cream (reserve remaining for chicken), 2 tsp. olive oil, seasoning blend, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside, stirring once before serving.
Pat chicken breasts dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into ¾" strips.
Bake the Biscuits
In another mixing bowl, combine biscuit mix, 3 Tbsp. water, and green onions until a thick, spoonable batter forms.
Divide into two equally-sized biscuits and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake in hot oven until golden brown, 15-18 minutes.
Rinse bowl clean and reserve.
While biscuits bake, prepare chicken.
Prepare the Chicken
Combine remaining sour cream and ⅓ cup cold water in reserved rinsed mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl, combine flour and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Dip chicken in sour cream mixture, then flour mixture, shaking off excess. Transfer to a plate in a single layer. Repeat with remaining chicken. Set aside to dry slightly, 5 minutes.
While chicken dries, heat oil.
Fry the Chicken
Line a plate with a paper towel. Heat canola oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat, 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, test oil temperature by adding a pinch of flour to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.
Working in batches, add chicken and cook until golden brown and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.
Remove to towel-lined plate and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Make Hot Honey and Finish Dish
In another mixing bowl, combine honey and hot sauce (to taste).
