McIsley Biscuit Sandwiches


Fall is all about comfort food, right? Nothing says comfort like warm biscuits and fried chicken. I wish I could say that I was the brains behind this concoction. But that would be lying. And that’s not cool.

A few weekends ago, my friend Tamara and I went to Portland to go to Music Festival Northwest. Before the shows, we went on a little food expedition, hitting up a couple highly-rated joints such as Barista and Salt & Straw. One that we didn’t plan on going to was Pine State Biscuits in the Alberta District. Once we passed by and saw a line going around the corner of the little brick building, we couldn’t resist.

They had these amazing, buttery biscuits and sandwiches. I had the McIsley, which was a biscuit sandwich with a huge piece of fried chicken breast, stone ground mustard, pickles, all drenched in honey. Mmmmm, comfort.


McIsley Biscuit Sandwiches

Makes 4 sandwiches


  • 4 buttermilk biscuits (I used this recipe, which made about 6 large biscuits)
  • 4 boneless fried chicken breasts (Make your own if you want! I was lazy and got some from the store.)
  • 4 tsp of whole grain mustard
  • 12 pickle chips
  • 4 tsp of honey


  1. Cut biscuits in half.
  2. Spread whole grain mustard on the bottom half.
  3. Place entire piece of fried chicken on top. It’ll look ridiculously over-sized. Just go with it.
  4. Drizzle chicken with honey and place pickles on top.
  5. Top with other half of biscuit. Best served warm!
