For the Biscuits:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

6 tbsp salted butter, salted margarine or buttery flavored shortening, frozen (use margarine or shortening for kosher)

1 cup milk OR unsweetened non-dairy milk (use non-dairy milk for kosher - almond, cashew and soy milk work well)

2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 tbsp additional salted butter or margarine (use margarine for kosher)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Chill dry ingredients in the refrigerator for 20 minutes before proceeding and freeze butter. Add frozen butter, margarine or shortening to the bowl cut into small pieces. Use a pastry cutter or fork to combine the dry ingredients with the fat until only small pieces remain and it looks like sand.

In a separate bowl whisk together milk with lemon juice. Make a well in the dry ingredients. Stir gently while pouring in the milk mixture 1/3 cup at a time. You may not need all of the liquid. Stir until just slightly combined, the mixture will be sticky.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface, dust the top with a bit of flour and then fold the dough over on itself 4-5 times. Take care not to knead the dough. Form into a 1-inch thick disc, handling as little as possible. Use a 2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter and push straight down through the dough, then slightly twist to cut out as many biscuits as possible.

Place biscuits on a greased baking sheet in two rows, making sure they just touch along the edges. This will help them rise uniformly. Gently reform the remaining dough and cut out one or two more biscuits. You should end up with 8 biscuits total. Gently press a small divot in the center of each biscuit with your thumb. Brush biscuits with the 2 T. melted butter or margarine. Bake for 20 minutes or until fluffy and golden, rotating the pan halfway through baking.

For the Fried Chicken:

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs (4 thighs)

1 cup self rising flour

1/2 tsp black pepper

2 eggs

1/3 cup hot sauce

2 tbsp water

1/4 tsp garlic powder

3 pints peanut oil

Pickle slices and honey, for topping

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, water, and hot sauce together. Reserve. In another medium bowl, combine the self-rising flour and black pepper. Trim excess fat from thighs and split in half. Sprinkle chicken pieces generously with salt, then lightly sprinkle with garlic powder.

Dip seasoned chicken in hot sauce mixture, then coat with seasoned flour. Pour oil in a large sauce pot and heat to 350 using a candy thermometer. Carefully submerge the chicken pieces into the hot oil. Fry the chicken until crispy (4-5 minutes), it should begin to float in the oil.

Serve hot fried chicken thighs on fresh split biscuits. Top with pickle slices and drizzle with honey.
