tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Separate the kale stems and leaves; discard the stems and thinly slice the leaves. Cut out and discard the cabbage core; thinly slice the leaves.

Make the biscuits:
2 Make the biscuits:

In a large bowl, combine ¾ of the biscuit mix and ¼ cup of cold water; season with salt and pepper. Stir until just combined. Lightly oil a sheet pan. On a clean work surface, divide the biscuit dough into 6 equal-sized portions. Using damp hands, form the portions into rounds. Transfer to the prepared sheet pan and bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Make the kale-cabbage slaw:
3 Make the kale-cabbage slaw:

While the biscuits bake, in a large bowl, combine the kale, cabbage, mayonnaise, vinegar and spice blend; toss to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside to marinate.

Bread the chicken:
4 Bread the chicken:

While the biscuits continue to bake, season the chicken cutlets with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium bowl, combine the mustard and ¼ cup of water. Place the remaining biscuit mix and breadcrumbs into 2 separate medium bowls. Working 1 at a time, thoroughly coat the seasoned cutlets in the biscuit mix (tapping off any excess), then dip in the mustard-water mixture (letting the excess drip off). Firmly press both sides of the coated cutlets in the breadcrumbs (shaking off any excess). Place the breaded cutlets on a plate or sheet pan.

Cook the chicken:
5 Cook the chicken:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a thin layer of oil on medium until hot. Once hot enough that a few breadcrumbs sizzle immediately when added to the pan, add the breaded chicken cutlets. Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the cooked cutlets to a paper towel-lined plate; season with salt and pepper immediately.

Make the honey hot sauce & plate your dish:
6 Make the honey hot sauce & plate your dish:

While the chicken cooks, in a small bowl, combine the honey and as much of the hot sauce as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt to taste. Cut the cooked chicken cutlets crosswise into thirds. Divide between plates. Serve with the biscuits, kale-cabbage slaw and honey hot sauce on the side. Enjoy!
