Whataburgers’ Honey Butter Chicken Biscuits

Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit Recipe

…but make it spicy

If you’ve ever been to Whataburger, you know that their Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit is literally what dreams are made of. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s basically a warm biscuit sandwich filled with crispy chicken lathered in warm honey butter. Did your mouth water too?

In college, I used to eat them all the time (whether it was before class in the morning, or super late after a night out). Regardless, I was a HUGE fan. Unfortunately, they don’t have any Whataburger’s in Miami, so I decided to re-create the dish at home! However, I decided to make it a little spicy. See the recipe below!
