These oven baked crispy chicken biscuits are perfect for the spicy chicken biscuit lovers out there. Each hot honey chicken biscuit has 226 calories, 26 grams of protein, 26 grams of carbs, 7 grams of fat, and at least 1 million grams of flavor.

At first glance, this recipe will look a bit longer than my typical recipe, but that’s because there are technically 3 recipes in the recipe card—the oven baked crispy chicken, the lower carb biscuits, and the sugar free raspberry chipotle jam. I promise they’re all simple recipes as usual, so don’t be intimidated!

If you're a chicken biscuit fan, you'll love this sweet and spicy oven baked crispy chicken. It's sweet and spicy and goes perfectly with a sugar free raspberry chipotle jam between a lower carb biscuit.

Ingredients You’ll Need for the Oven Baked Crispy Chicken

If you’ve tried my air fried spicy popcorn chicken, this hot honey chicken will use a couple familiar ingredients:

  • ground cinnamon
  • salt and pepper
  • cayenne pepper
  • honey
  • Corn Flakes

Cinnamon? Yup. Trust me.

The chicken itself is super easy to make. Once you’ve cut the chicken into 8 pieces, all you need to do is coat it with the spices, add the honey, fold in crushed Corn Flakes, and bake. And voila, you’ll have sweet and spicy oven baked crispy chicken without oil.

How to Make the Lower Carb Biscuits

One of my favorite breakfast staple ingredients is a product called Carbquick. It’s a lower carb biscuit mix that simply mixes with water and creates a surprisingly light and fluffy biscuit.

You can even microwave the stuff, as evidenced by my loaded omelet mug biscuit and microwavable bacon, egg, and cheese biscuits

If you don’t have any Carbquick on hand, feel free to use another biscuit mix like Bisquick or even biscuits from a tube. No judgement here.

The 2-Ingredient, Sugar Free Raspberry Chipotle Jam

Like I mentioned in the intro, simple is the name of the game ’round here. All you’ll need for the jam is a jar of sugar free raspberry preserves and a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.

Blend ’em up and you’re done.

Final Notes for the Oven Baked Crispy Chicken Biscuits

I’ve noted in the recipe card below that you may want to reduce the amount of pepper if you’re sensitive to spice. It’s better to start on the lower end and ramp up later.

And one final thing I’d like to emphasize is the note about pounding your chicken to get even pieces. This is an important note. The last thing you want is one super thick piece of chicken not cooking through while a thinner piece turns to burnt rubber!

See Exhibit A below: a piece of chicken that was too thick and had to go back in the oven by itself, killing my vibe.

Biscuits

  1. While the chicken is in the oven, mix the Carbquick or biscuit mix with the water until you can form a ball of dough. 

  2. Divide the dough into 8 pieces and flatten them between your palms. (Optional: brush with a bit of butter or egg wash for a golden brown top.)

  • These are a freaking awesome tasty alternative to Whataburgers honey butter chicken biscuit! And they’re not going to make you ruin your New Years goals!!


  • This recipe was fantastic! I used chicken tenders so I didn’t need to cut or pound anything and it worked perfectly. My entire family devoured it (which is saying a lot with my picky eaters).


  • I’ve yet to try one of Mason’s recipes that wasn’t jam up good. This is great. I add a little nonfat plain Greek yogurt and a tsp of light butter to the biscuit dough. It makes it taste buttery. Recipe is GREAT!


  • These were so fun and delicious! A great twist on a classic but so easy and macro-friendly! I used a regular jam though, which did increase the the calorie count but was still delicious.


  • Okay these are legit amazing!!! I had trouble finding plain cornflakes so it took me a while to finally make these but I’m so glad I did. I made them in the air fryer and they came out sooooo crispy!!!!! And the biscuit part.. my goodness! It was delicious! As long as you follow all of masons notes you will not be disappointed. These are fire!


  • I had to improvise with the sauce and buscuits but let’s just say the chicken is probably the best “fried” chicken I’ve ever had. HOW DOES HE THINK OF THIS? A culinary genius? An insane mastermind? All of the above? Yeah, the third option.


  • Delicious!! I love spicy so I uped the cayenne pepper a little bit and they were spot on!!! I ended up using store bought biscuits because I was short on time and was still able to fit two into my macros.
