Ingredients
  

Chicken Biscuit Sliders

  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. black pepper
  • 1 t. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 8 biscuits

Sausage Gravy

  • 1/2 lb. breakfast sausage
  • 2 T. flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Pound the chicken thighs to half-inch thickness, then cut each thigh in half to make 8 pieces.
  • Whisk cornmeal, flour, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a small bowl. Pour milk into another small bowl.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and set a wire rack inside. Coat the rack with nonstick spray.
  • Dip both sides of chicken in milk, then dredge in cornmeal mixture. Press into the mix to thoroughly coat both sides of the chicken. Set on wire rack.
  • Bake chicken at 425° for 30-35 minutes, until both sides are golden brown.
  • While chicken is baking, brown sausage in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Stir in flour until it disappears, then slowly pour in milk while stirring. Add salt & pepper.
  • Bring gravy to a simmer and continue cooking for about 5 minutes until thickened.
  • About 5 minutes before the chicken is done, add biscuits to the oven to warm.
  • Split biscuits in half and set a piece of chicken on each.
  • Serve sliders hot with sausage gravy for topping.

Notes

Splitting biscuits with a fork - by poking the tines in all the way around - gives each piece lots of nooks and crannies to soak up gravy.
