The best companion for homemade fried chicken? This quick-and-easy biscuit recipe.

Since fried chicken from scratch is a bit more involved, here's the simplest (yet among the best) biscuit recipe. Feel free to add a handful of grated aged cheddar to the dry ingredients to turn them into cheese biscuits.
Preheat oven to 425ËF. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. (If you like, add a handful of grated sharp cheese, like aged cheddar) Add the cream and stir just until dough comes together. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough a few times, then pat into a circle about an inch thick.
Cut into 8 wedges or use a biscuit cutter and transfer onto a parchment-lined baking sheet; if you like, brush the tops with milk or cream. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. Makes 8 biscuits.
