Directions

Marinate the chicken: Whisk the buttermilk, hot sauce and 1 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Cut the chicken into 24 small pieces (about 3/4 by 2 inches each) and add to the marinade; cover and refrigerate at least2 hours or overnight.

Make the dough: Whisk the flour, 1 teaspoon salt, the baking powder and sugar in a large bowl. Slowly pour in the half-and-half, stirring with a wooden spoon until a rough dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough comes together, about 1 minute. Pat into a rectangle, then roll out until it's 8 by 12 inches (about 1/8 inch thick). Cut the dough into 24 strips (about 1 by 4 inches each) and set on a parchment-lined baking sheet; refrigerate 30 minutes.

Fry the chicken: Combine the flour, paprika, cayenne, thyme and 1 teaspoon black pepper in a large bowl. Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a deep skillet over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 360 degrees F. Working in batches, remove the chicken from the marinade, letting the excess drip off. Toss in the seasoned flour, then fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown and just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels; sprinkle with salt.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Wrap a strip of chilled dough around each piece of fried chicken, pressing lightly to seal; set on the baking sheet, seam-side down. Brush the dough with 2 tablespoons of the melted butter and sprinkle with salt and paprika. Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Combine the remaining 3 tablespoons melted butter and the honey; brush onto the biscuits while still hot.
