Chicken Biscuit at The Commodore

I'm sure you know that I LOVE THE COMMODORE (but only during the day and quiet weeknights). Also when your friend texts you "I'm hungover AF" you head to The Commodore and order the hash brown loaded with everything and the chicken biscuit. The chicken biscuit comes with honey butter that you can drizzle as little or as much as you want. It's probably one of my favorite chicken biscuits in NYC. Tasty, crunchy, flaky biscuit.

$9 (Sandwich only)

Chicken Biscuit at BeeHive Oven

Beehive Oven started off as a vendor at Smorgasburg and later opened a restaurant in Williamsburg. This place is awesome. The whole time I was there, I felt like I wasn't in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It's cozy and has that old timey feel like I was somewhere in New England.

So here, I decided to build my own biscuit. I kept it simple, you know me. Biscuit with fried chicken and an over easy egg (with a side of mashed potatoes).

Oh baby, pour some hot sauce on it. Beehive Oven specializes in biscuit so yeah, the biscuit was pretty great. Hhhmmmm crispy fried chicken, needed a little salt, and the last bite of biscuit/chicken was great for mopping up the last of the yolk. Win!

$8 ($3 for the biscuit, $3 for the fried chicken, and $2 for the egg)

Chicken Biscuit at Cheeky Sandwiches

I've been going to Cheeky Sandwiches for years and somehow they have been able to keep the same prices on their sandwiches. I love this place. I can't think of anything more they can do to improve it. The sandwich (biscuit, fried chicken, slaw, and gravy) is awesome and I love that the space is tiny.

Sweet Afton

To be honest, I'm having trouble finding fried chickens in Queens. Yes, all of Queens. There are abundant of Korean wings, Thai style fried chicken, Filipino fried chicken but when it comes to southern style buttermilk fried chicken there are only a handful of places serving it.

I remember sort of liking the fried chicken at Sugar Freak (will need a revisit) and I really dislike the chicken and waffle at Queens Comfort. So when I finally sat down at Sweet Afton, I was hoping HOPING for at least a decent....worthy fried chicken.

Thankfully, this was a pretty good dish. I usually hate having gravy with fried chicken because it's usually too heavy but this red eye gravy wasn't heavy at all and it was damn tasty. The piece of fried chicken was pretty standard but the included egg.....yes, anything is better with a fried egg. One thing I would suggest is to have the gravy on the side and maybe an extra biscuit oh and probably 1 more fried egg.

$12

Pies 'N' Thighs

This chicken biscuit from Pies ‘n’ Thighs haunts my dreams. I still remember eating it the first time and made the mistake of sharing it with a friend. Ever since then, we each order our own. It comes with a slab of butter and a pool of hot sauce and honey.
