Ready in 20 minutes these Copycat KFC Biscuits are light and flaky, you will love these with jam, gravy or more butter.
These Copycat KFC Biscuits are a super simple, delicious side for any meal of the day! They’re incredibly easy to make and are perfect for meals year round! I personally am partial to a nice hot biscuit on a cold winter morning during the holidays, but the best thing about these biscuits is that they’re so easy, you can have them whenever you want!
I am a huge sucker for breakfast, it is actually my favorite meal of the day. One of my favorites is homemade biscuits and gravy, with sausage and eggs! Yum. I am drooling just thinking about it. I mean check out the flaky layers.
These are the best biscuits that will ever come from your kitchen and they are so easy to make. These taste just like the biscuits from KFC but better because they are homemade.
I got this recipe, 12 years ago, but didn’t actually make it until 8 years ago. Since then I have never, ever made a breakfast that used frozen or refrigerated biscuits, as these are just as easy. Now, I can’t say we haven’t ever had those…store bought ones….my husband uses them when he is in charge. Needless to say, the kids have deemed me the biscuit champion.
I hope you enjoy this recipe for Copycat KFC Biscuits just as much as we have.

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
4 teaspoons Butter Flavor Crisco
1 cup buttermilk
PREHEAT oven to 400°F; COMBINE 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon sugar, 4 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda in a large mixing bowl; CUT in shortenings until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
STIR in 1 cup buttermilk just until a soft dough forms (dough will be very loose and sticky at this point).
SPRINKLE flour over a large wooden board; TURN dough onto a floured board and knead gently 10 to 12 times or until no longer sticky, re-flouring board as necessary while kneading.
DIVIDE dough in half; GENTLY pat or roll each half into an 8-inch circle 1/2-inch thick.
CUT out biscuits – pressing straight down – with a 2-inch biscuit cutter.
REFORM scraps, working it as little as possible and continue cutting.
PLACE cut biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet with edges barely touching; BRUSH tops of the biscuits with whole milk.
BAKE for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
IMMEDIATELY brush biscuits with margarine (or butter) after baking
