Emeril’s Chicken and Biscuits with Redeye Gravy

0 Flares Filament.io Made with Flare More Info'> 0 Flares ×

Guys, just…stop. Stop everything and make this.

This is the first thing I’ve made out of Emeril Lagasse’s soon-to-be-released cookbook, Kicked Up-Sandwiches, and I sure do have a good impression now!

Traditionally made with ham, Emeril changes things up with fried chicken.

And, we’re not talking about just any biscuits. Cheddar and Green Onions Biscuits give bite and flavor that’s more elegant than a plain buttermilk biscuit.

Yeah. All that and… I’ve never made my own biscuits before.

Really. I’m not joking. I guess I’ve never felt the urge to try it before? Now, I couldn’t see why I wouldn’t want to make them myself.

Emeril’s recipe is simple and required ingredients I already had.



Look at those yummy pieces of cheese and green onions.

I rolled these out pretty thin, knowing that I wanted to eat it like a sandwich. I could have rolled them thicker and would have had enough for dinner, but these smelled so good while I mixed the batter that I knew I would want to take one or two for tomorrow’s lunch.

Or, who am I kidding – breakfast.

Emeril also puts a spin on the gravy with coffee, chicken stock, onions and green onions, thickened up and well-seasoned so it can hide in all the nooks and crannies of the fried chicken.

I WILL be making this recipe again.

You could, too! Kicked-Up Sandwiches won’t be released until October 16, but as a #SeriousSandwich Cookalong blogger, I’ll be giving away a copy to one lucky reader starting October 8!

Until then, I’ll be back with Emeril’s Columbia Street Grinder and Ginger Ice Cream Sandwiches with Ginger Molasses Cookies. Yeah, there’s an ice cream recipe in this book. I about died, too.

    You make this dish sound soo good! Also, I too will be making the ice cream sandwiches, but not until October 13th (my first free moment).

      Thank you! Although I must say, Emeril did all the hard work by envisioning this amazing recipe! I think I’ll make the ice cream first, cookies later. However, that means I must not eat all of the ice cream until cookies are made :)

    I made the biscuits this weekend and they were delish! So easy with the cream & butter. Mine turned out a little flattish, but they were just perfect for a slice or two of bacon. Will have to try the fried chicken & red eye gravy, too!

    • solidgoldeats

      Lucy, thanks for confirming that yours were a little flat, too. I thought they would rise a bit more, but i was okay with them being smaller. And great idea to eat with a slice or two (or three, in my case) of bacon!

    Being from the South and raised on biscuits, this def caught my eye… “red-eye” that is! A delicious post! Thanks for sharing!

    • solidgoldeats

      I wanted more biscuits just to sop up the gravy that didn’t fit on my plate!

    As a non-pork eater I love that it’s with chicken!!

    • solidgoldeats

      Yes!! And chicken thighs are a fairly cheap cut of meat.

    Oh my goodness … this recipe looks amazing! I think you’ve just made me alter my #SeriousSandwich line up so I can include this one too!

    • solidgoldeats

      Nice! Can’t wait to see your creations!

    • solidgoldeats

    Nice job! Can’t tell you’ve never made biscuits before! (Though I’m still wondering how it is that I missed this in the book!)

    • solidgoldeats

      Thank you so much – I was really nervous, especially since I knew I wanted to document the process and share the results no matter what.

  • Kalamity Kelli

    Yum! Looks really good. Chicken and biscuits are always great together!

    • solidgoldeats

      Agreed!! McDonald’s ain’t got nothin on me…
