Crispy Chicken Strips and Biscuits

I had several blogger books on my Christmas list this year. One that I was particularly excited about was Sheet Pan Suppers by Molly Gilbert, author of the blog Dunk And Crumble.  (There were other cookbooks that I got too, so look for more recipe reviews soon!)  I’ve made a few recipes from Molly’s blog before (like this Brownie Berry Tart) and they always turned out well, so I knew it would be quality.  Plus, the idea of cooking everything on a sheet pan in the oven sounded interesting and easy to me, so I was excited to see what kinds of recipes she had created.  Added bonus: Molly is actually the sister of a good friend of ours, so I ended up getting a signed copy from her for Christmas!

There are several recipes in the book that I can’t wait to try – including appetizers, sides, breakfasts, and desserts, as well as dinners.  I decided to start with a recipe I knew I would enjoy, Chicken Tenders and Biscuits.

The recipe was not difficult to make, but it did take more time than I often spend on dinner. (Sad but true.) However, the time spent was definitely worth it because it tasted delicious.  The chicken tenders were my favorite that I’ve made from any recipe, so crispy! And of course, you can never go wrong with homemade biscuits.

One thing that I was really impressed with was how easy the recipe was to follow, and how well written the instructions were.  Making two different things at once often either results in things being done at completely different times, or one of the things just not being made in an effort to save time.  The timing of making the chicken tenders and biscuits at once was impressively accurate and the steps were easy to follow with detailed instructions, but not too much that it was overwhelming.  (For instance, she mentions that you need to leave the oven on after each step involving baking.  That might seem like no big deal, but was so important because it is my (probably everyone’s) normal instinct to turn off the oven when you take something out of the oven.

Ease: B+, more than anything this recipe was just time consuming.  Nothing was difficult about each step, but mixing and cutting and putting things together just took time.
Taste: A+, really delicious.  The crispiest chicken tenders I’ve ever made at home, and I don’t think you can go wrong with homemade biscuits.

Would I make it again?  Definitely.  The recipe makes enough to have leftovers, which I haven’t eaten yet, but if they re-heat well, I think I would make it even more often.

  1. YAY Kelly, so glad you enjoyed!! Thanks so much for reviewing!

  2. Please forgive me, because I am sure there is an obvious answer, but where is the link to the recipe – so interested in making these! Thanks!!

    • No worries, you aren’t the first to ask! The recipe is actually from the cookbook Sheet Pan Suppers, it isn’t on the internet anywhere so you’ll have to buy the cookbook to get the recipe. (I definitely recommend the cookbook, lots of other great recipes in there, too!)
