Chicken with biscuits and gravy is a Southern staple, but plenty of people get this recipe wrong. It’s not about having the crispiest, most breaded chicken in the world, or the most savory gravy. It’s the perfectly shallow-fried chicken and mild, but rich gravy that really makes this dish taste like home. Luckily, if you follow this recipe, you’ll be a pro in no time.
If you desire more heat, you can serve this with additional hot sauce —there’s always room for it on the table, no? Or increase the paprika in the breading mixture, which will also add a bit more color to this rather beige meal.
