The Ultimate Spicy Chicken Biscuit

I’ve been playing around with this one for over a year, and I finally got something that I think works pretty well. It has just enough heat to warm you up on a cold morning, and plenty of taste to make you happy.

Do the marinade the night before, and you’re ready to go.

Put it on your favorite Southern biscuit and enjoy.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
