Weeknight Fried Chicken 'n Biscuits w/ Sriracha-Honey Butter (USA)

Chicken and biscuits are always a crowd pleaser.  Alas, I did not come up with the beautiful recipe for Sriracha-Honey Butter.  It was found here, by Rachel Ray.  However, this is a great recipe to make on a weeknight when you are in a hurry!

Looking for a healthier version?  No problem.  Substitute the fried chicken for grilled chicken.  And substitute the butter for margarine.

You will need:
4 Country fried chicken breast patties
1/2 tube (4) refrigerated biscuits (I used Pillsbury)
8 pickle slices
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons sriracha (or to taste)

Yield: 4 chicken and biscuit sandwiches

1. Simply pop the chicken and the biscuits in the oven according to manufacturer's instructions.

2. In the mean time, you can prepare the Sriracha-Honey Butter by combining butter, honey, and sriracha sauce in a small bowl.

3. When chicken and biscuits are done, slice the biscuits in half.  Assemble your sandwiches with the Sriracha-Honey Butter spread on the bottom half of the biscuit, then chicken, pickles, and topped off with the other half of your biscuit.  You may wish to melt a bit of your butter to paint on top of the biscuit, depending on how messy you like things!
