Buffalo Chicken Cheddar Biscuit Wraps
Why I Love This Recipe
I was watching the Travel Channel and saw a sandwich that I just had to try out with my own spin. A chicken cheddar biscuit from a restaurant in North Carolina. I decide to do a Buffalo style chicken wrapped in a biscuit topped with jalapenos and this thing just came out amazing! This is a must try if you like buffalo chicken!
