With Game Day Grit Fried Chicken Mini’s stuffed inside plenty of hot-from-the-oven southern style biscuits, you can bet those dog gone mascots for both the Alabama & Auburn opponents will be lured from their post. A fan-favorite sauce, honey mustard, spiked with a bit of heat takes these delicious morsels to a whole new level. Auburn fanatics can taunt Uga with a double dose of southern comfort. Peaches & toasty pecans compliment the main course effortlessly further sealing the fate of one beloved mascot sure to be MIA. Get ready to savor sweet victory with these crowd pleasing snacks guaranteed to take it to the house for an undeniable win for both Alabama & Auburn.

The Game Plan

Prepare the biscuit dough & cut the shapes up to one month ahead.
Freeze them, then seal in zip top bags & store until ready to bake.

Prepare the sauces up to 2 days ahead. Transfer to ramekins just before serving.
The chicken can be fried the day before the tailgate & warmed in the oven.

Organize plates & napkins on trays. Place close to the snacks for easy accessibility.
Craft several Football Pennants to add a dose of extra game day fanfare.

Create a small bar area to keep food & drink stations separate.

makes about 4 dozen pieces

Trick Play

Flattening the chicken will allow it to fit onto the biscuit better & makes the appetizers easier to eat. Use a wooden pick to secure the tops adorn with a Football Pennant for a dose of school spirit, if desired.

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
3/4 cup plain yellow cornmeal
3/4 cup ap flour
1 Tbsp paprika
2 tsp poultry seasoning
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp celery salt
Vegetable oil

Cut the chicken into 1 x 1/2-inch pieces. Working in batches, place a piece of plastic wrap over the pieces & lightly flatten to a 1/4-inch thickness using a rolling pin. Whisk together the milk & the egg in a medium bowl. Add the chicken, coating well. Whisk together the cornmeal, the flour, the paprika, the poultry seasoning, the kosher salt, the garlic powder & the celery salt in a medium bowl. Dip the chicken pieces into the cornmeal mixture, shaking off the excess. 

Pour the oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches in a Dutch oven & heat to 360 degrees. Drop the chicken pieces into the oil & fry, in batches, 3 minutes or until golden brown & the chicken registers at least 175 degrees. Allow the oil to return to 360 degrees before dropping a new batch. Remove from the oil & drain on a rack over paper towels. Sprinkle with additional kosher salt, if desired. Use as directed.

The Extra Point 

These chicken littles can be used for a variety of appetizer & everyday meal solutions. Toss over salads, stuff into hoagie rolls or just dip them in sauce. Any way you serve these bites, the crowd is sure to go wild.

The Basic Fundamentals 

 A hint of sweetness & buttery notes make these biscuits irresistible. Freeze the cut biscuits on a sheet pan & place in zip top bags. Store in the freezer up to one month. Bake the desired number of biscuits, as directed, increasing the bake time by a few minutes, if necessary. If preparing the entire batch from the frozen state, place 1/2-inch apart on two sheet pans for the best results.

4 3/4 cups soft-wheat flour
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 3/4 tsp table salt
1 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
1 1/3 cups plus 1 Tbsp whole milk
2 Tbsp honey
Melted butter

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Whisk together the flour, the baking powder & the salt in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry blender until it resembles the size of small peas. Whisk together 1 1/3 cups milk & the honey. Blend the milk mixture into the flour mixture just until a sticky dough comes together.

Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured surface & knead 2 to 3 times. Pat the dough to 1/2-inch thickness & portion with a 2-inch round cutter. Place on a lightly greased half sheet pan with the edges just touching. Reroll the dough & repeat. The pan will be full. Brush the remaining 1 Tbsp milk over the dough tops. Place in the oven, & reduce the temperature to 400 degrees. Bake on the middle oven rack 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with melted butter, if desired. Use as directed.

The Extra Point

An old-fashioned breakfast of bacon, eggs & grits upgrades instantly with a few of these southern favorites on the plate. Split the biscuits & spread with blackberry preserves or drizzle with sorghum.

How To Talk A Good Game Of Football

Learn some facts & get in the game. Be certain you’re up-to-date with the team matchups each week. While perusing the tailgating spread option with a cocktail in tow, it’s always a smart idea to have a few tidbits of information to offer when small talk beckons with Uncle Jebediah who’s inevitably reaching in for another rib. Here are some team facts & a smidgen of history to help you navigate a game winning conversation full of football know-how.

Alabama vs Mississippi State

Mississippi State claims the 1980 match up against the Alabama Crimson Tide as one of their biggest in school history as they won against the defending national champions for two straight years. The Crimson Tide & the Mississippi State Bulldogs face off in Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville Mississippi with a 6 pm kick-off on ESPN.

Auburn vs Georgia

The first game played between the two schools was in 1892. Auburn won the match up with a final score of 10-0 in Atlanta, Georgia. The Auburn Tigers & the Georgia Bulldogs meet on the gridiron in Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday with an 2:30 pm kick-off on CBS.
