Honey Maple Chicken and Donuts

Easy Biscuit Donuts with a Maple Glaze topped with Chicken Tenders and honey! It's a filling breakfast!
Looking for an unusual dessert that’s fit to be a meal? Check out these Honey Maple Chicken Strips and Donuts! It was totally my lunch and I don’t regret one single bite! I loved everything about this perfectly scrumptious lunch!

Enjoy an easy Maple Glazed Doughnut with a chicken strip and honey on top! I've died and gone to heaven!

The dounts were quick and easy to make using canned biscuits and I added a Tyson’s Crispy Chicken Strip for some added protein to my diet. It totally makes this a balanced lunch.

I’ve got some carbs, some natural sugars, milk, and chicken. 
Sounds pretty balanced to me. 
Don’t you agree?

Wait, what? 
I’m missing fruits and veggies? Nah, I’m good. I had them in my breakfast smoothie this morning before yoga. 
See, all balanced. 
And yes, I said yoga. I started going to yoga last week and I’m back for a second week. So far, so good. I’ve been stretched like a rubber band and I’m going back for more. Fingers crossed that this routine sticks. Ever since my 39th birthday, my flexibility has gone down dramatically. Touching my toes with my knees straight is a bit more of a challenge these days.
I think I would do much better with some donuts just out of reach while streching… 
Ooey Gooey Honey dripping off a chicken strip on top of a maple glazed doughnut. Yep, I know what my next meal is!

What motivates you to work out? I’d love to hear it.
Do you work out to balance your sugar tooth? To keep you active with your kids? To help you keep feeling young?

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Keywords: bake fry honey maple syrup donuts
  • 1 refrigerator Biscuits, canned
  • 3 C vegetable oil
  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 1/4 C milk
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • Tysons Crispy Chicken Strips
  • Honey
Preheat the oven to 400℉ and prepare 8 chicken strips on a bake sheet. Bake chicken strips according to the instructions.
Meanwhile, preheat the oil in a medium sized pot. The oil is ready when it sizzles when water is splashed on it, approximately 350℉.
Open the canned biscuit and cut a hole in the center with a small cutter or just making a hole with your fingers and pulling it open.
Cook 1 – 2 donuts at a time depending on the size of your pot. Fry for 30 seconds then flip over and cook for another 30 seconds.
Remove with a slotted spatchula and transfer to a cooling rack with a paper towel underneath. Fry up all the biscuits and holes.
In a bowl mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and maple syrup. Stir it smooth and microwave for 10 seconds. Stir again checking the consistency and then heat again for another 10 seconds.
Dip the donut tops into the maple sugar and glaze just one side. Return to the drying rack to dip.
When the chicken is done, top with the fresh chicken strip and drizzle on some honey.
Enjoy it with an apple for a balanced meal!

Glazed Apple Pie Fritters

#BakeThisHolidaySpecial - Make some homemade Apple Pie Fritters. There's more than enough to feed your hungry crowd!
Oh my gosh! I made my most favorite, most loved, most desired doughnut ever – Apple Fritters!! And they are so easy to make I really don’t know why I’ve never made them before. I’ve been working with Lucky Leaf pie filling for a few years now and I love getting a nice surprise box from them. For the holiday’s they sent some Cherry, Blueberry and Apple Pie filling for me to play around with. I made the Cherry Pie Cookies and then I made FRITTERS!

Yes, I’m sorry, I must shout it from the mountains! You don’t understand my love of apple fritters.

Homemade Apple Pie Fritters. Easier than you think and cheaper than buying them. #BakeThisHolidaySpecial

They might not be the prettiest donuts on the shelves, but I think that they are the best tasting ones. My love for apple fritters started with my annual visits to my grandparent’s house in the summer. Donuts were not a regular occurrence in our household, and grandmas are the best at spoiling kids! She would go to the store and get a dozen mixes donuts for everyone. There were glazed, chocolate covered, crullers, and some old fashioned cake ones. Grandmas are just the best. Anyway, we would get to pick which one we wanted and I always picked the fritter. 
All those nooks and crannies. The fried, crispy edges and the soft centers with ribbons of cinnamon and chunks of apple – LOVE!
Warm it up for 10 seconds and give me a glass of milk and I was in heaven!

These days, I still love an annual fritter. They are kinda my kryptonite and once I buy one, I may as well buy two. 
Frying up these babies will hold me over for another year. 
What was really awesome were the big chunks of apples in them. I think that the apple is the best part of the fritter. It’s apple pie meets doughnut – what could be better? 

Just to let you know – I found that the smaller ones cooked up better than the large ones that I was trying to replicate. I could also control the amount of glaze. Some had a lot and others just got a light application. I preferred the ones with less glaze.

Apple Pie Fritters

by Karyn Granrud
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Keywords: apples donuts

    For the Fritters

    • 4 cups Bisquick Mix
    • 1 cup water
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 can Lucky Leaf Apple Pie Filling
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

    For the Glaze

    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 1/2 – 2 cups powdered sugar
    Preheat 6 cups of oil in a large pot. Heat oil to 350℉.
    Mix the Bisquick, water, eggs, and sugar. Run a knife through the pie filling while in the can to cut the slices into chunks. Pour the apple chunks into the batter and fold in. Add the cinnamon and fold over two times.
    DO NOT mix in the cinnamon. You want ribbons of cinnamon in the fritters.
    Prepare a cookie sheet lined with paper towels and place a wire rack over top.
    Carefully add a heaping tablespoon of the batter into the hot oil and fry. Depending on the size of your pot, you should only cook 3 -4 fritters at a time. Turn the fritters over allowing them to cook for 3 to 4 minutes depending on the size. Use a slotted spoon to lift the fritters out of the oil and place them on the prepared wire rack to cool.
    When all of the fritters are cooked and cooled, make the glaze.
    Heat the milk and sugar in a shallow pan, heating the milk, but not boiling and dissolving the sugar. Turn off the heat and add a fritter to the glaze to coat. Depending on the amount of glaze you want, you may have to dip it twice. If the glaze gets thick, turn the heat back on and thin it out or add a bit more milk.
    Let the glaze set and then serve.
    I suggest slightly warming the fritter and serving them with milk or tea.

    Cream Filled Chocolate Donuts with Glaze

    I got up and got moving this morning thanks to #MillstoneCoffee and Socialstars by Crowdtap.
    Grab a Coffee and Donut in the morning and have a Great Day! #MillstoneCoffee
    How do you get up and get going in the morning? Ideally, I’d wake up at 6 am, get an hour yoga session in followed by a hot shower and a yummy breakfast of eggs, bacon, and a big cup of coffee. I’d be fresh and ready to start my day knowing that I can conquer anything that comes my way. 
    In the real world, I never go to bed on time. I’m always up late blogging, catching up on social media, or just too invested in my book to turn the lights out at a decent hour. As a result, I end up hitting snooze too many times then rush around getting everyone ready for school. 
    There is no 6 am yoga, no hot shower, and no bacon and eggs, but there is always COFFEE!
    The perfect pour of #MillstoneCoffee - How do you like your coffee?
    Thank goodness for that fresh, hot cup of Millstone Coffee this morning! Sometimes I think it’s more about the coffee ritual that I enjoy. It used to be that the coffee grinder was my alarm clock, but last year we ditched the plug in maker for a manual pour over maker.

    I have my favorite mug and my husband has his. I take my coffee with milk and sugar and he takes his black. On school mornings, we fill up our travel mugs to take on the road and enjoy while talking about current events, work, or planning our weekend.

    Sometimes, if we are feeling especially lazy, we come back from school drop off, sit together and enjoy a second cup. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s a great moment. 
    So, how do you like your coffee? Millstone Coffee sent me their Dark Roast Mayan Black Onyx as well as their Medium Roast House Blend. Both full-bodied, gourmet coffees packed a great flavor profile, however, I preferred the House Blend personally. I found the aroma wonderful first thing in the morning, but my husband, who likes to proclaim himself a coffee connoisseur, liked the bold body of the Mayan Black Onyx.
    So… Me being a dessert blogger and all… I just HAD to bake something to go with the coffee. And of course, that would be the donuts. The chocolatey goodness goes so well with the bold flavor of the Millstone coffee and the fact that they were cream-filled was a wonderful added bonus!Cream Filled Chocolate Donuts with Coffee Glaze.

    Cream Filled Chocolate Donuts with Glaze

    Cream filled Chocolate Donuts with Coffee Glaze - the perfect Triple Mocha Donut!

    by Karyn Granrud
    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Cook Time: 10 minutes
    Keywords: chocolate coffee donuts

      For the Chocolate Donuts

      • 1 C flour
      • 1/2 C sugar
      • 1/4 C cocoa powder
      • 1/2 tea baking soda
      • 1 egg
      • 6 Tbsp sour cream
      • 1/4 C milk 
      • 1/4 C vegetable oil

      For the Cream Filling

      • 1/2 C butter
      • 1/4 C milk
      • 1 C powdered sugar

      For the Glaze

      • 1/2 – 2 C powdered sugar, depending on how thick you want your glaze
      • 1/4  whole milk
      Preheat the oven to 400℉.
      Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the wet ingredients in a small bowl. Gradually add the dry into the wet and mix until combined.
      Grease your donut pan and spoon the batter in. Bake for 10 minutes.
      Remove and let cool in a wire rack.

      For the Cream Filling

      Whip the butter, milk, and sugar until light and fluffy. You don’t want it super thick like frosting, just smooth and creamy.
      Fill a donut injector with the cream and add it to the center of the donut. A little bit is all that’s required.

      For the Glaze

      Place the milk and sugar into a small saucepan and whisk over low heat. Spoon the glaze over the donuts, allow the sugar to set up, then serve with your favorite cup of Millstone Coffee.

      Glazed Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Donuts from Java Cupcake

      I’d like you all to welcome Betsy from Java Cupcake! She’s an Army wife and an avid cupcake lover! 
      Today she’s sharing a great Donut Recipe that I’ve got to try! 

      Hello Pint Sized Baker readers! My name is Betsy and I blog over at… a baking blog dedicated to my love of cupcakes, cakes, cookies, pies… oh my! I’m super excited to be sharing with you my recipe for Glazed Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Donuts. 
      They’re a baked donut that take almost no time to whip up! 
      Last week, I was supposed to go to a play-date with some of the neighborhood Moms and their kids and wanted to bring these Glazed Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Donuts. But, my 16 month old son Matty didn’t wake up until 0945 and the play-date started at 1000… so, I wasn’t going to make it. 
      Hmmm… I wonder who’s going to eat them now? 

       Oh, right. 

      Bahhaha šŸ˜€

      Anyways… I was inspired to make these donuts from a recipe I saw on Fake Ginger. The picture is what sold me.  Seriously, why have I never made these before?  My two favorite flavors… in breakfast form! YES!

      I really hope you enjoy these!

      Glazed Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts

      by Java Cupcakes
      Prep Time: 10 minutes
      Cook Time: 10 minutes
      Ingredients (10 – 12)

        Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Donuts

        • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
        • 1/2 cup sugar
        • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
        • 1 tsp vanilla extract
        • 2 large egg
        • 3/4 cup milk
        • 2 cups flour
        • 2 tsp baking powder
        • 1/2 tsp salt
        • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
        • piping bag + large round piping tip

        Chocolate Glaze

        • 5Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
        • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
        • 1/4 cup + 2Tbsp milk
        • 1 tsp corn syrup
        • 1 tsp vanilla extract
        • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
        • mini chocolate chips, for garnish

        Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Donuts

        Preheat oven to 325 F degrees. Spray a large hole donut pan with non-stick spray.
        In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
        In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together the peanut butter and sugar until smooth.
        Mix in the oil and vanilla extract.
        Add the eggs, one at a time and mix until combined.
        With your mixer on low speed, add the flour in three parts, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the flour. Mix just until combined or no more clumps of flour can be seen.
        Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
        Fit a piping bag with a large round tip and fill the bag with batter. Using the bag, squeeze the batter into each donut hole of the pan until it’s filled almost to the top.
        Bake 10-11 minutes or until the tops have slightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean.
        Allow to cool in the pan for 1 minute before flipping over onto a cooling rack.

        Chocolate Glaze

        In a medium bowl, melt the butter. Add the cocoa powder and whisk until smooth. NOTE: It will be VERY thick.
        Add the milk and whisk until incorporated.
        Mix in the corn syrup and the vanilla extract.
        Add the powdered sugar and whisk until smooth. NOTE: You want a mixture thick enough to stick to the top of the donut and not drip down the sides.


        Dip the top of each donut in the chocolate glaze. Shake off any excess and place donut on wire rack.
        Sprinkle the top of each donut with mini chocolate chips.
        Allow glaze to set for 20-30 minutes before serving.
        Enjoy with a big glass of milk!

        Pink Lemonade Donuts

        Every girl LOVES pink food! 
        And, every girl loves donuts! 
        And… every mom loves quick and easy treats for their daughters who love pink donuts!
        It’s a total win-win situation here!

        These are “cheater” donuts again. I used a cake mix to make them.  Last time I made “cheater” donuts I used a muffin mix. What’s the difference anyway? My taste buds weren’t complaining.
        I think it’s a great alternative especially if  you don’t have the time to make donuts from scratch.
        My daughter loved these donuts. She shared them with her friends and they all thought I was a complete and total genius. I mean, they already knew I was, so it was just another normal day here in my house of {Awesomeness}!
        I know that if you pick your favorite cake and may your kids some cake donuts, you may never make cupcakes again. 
        Ok, you will make cupcakes again, but you’ll be thinking that the donuts are easier.

        Pink Lemonade Donuts

        by Karyn Granrud
        Prep Time: 5 minutes
        Cook Time: 15 minutes

        Ingredients (serves 12)
        • 1 box Pillsbury Pink Lemonade Cake +ingredients on box
        • 1 container Pillsbury Pink Lemonade Frosting
        • Sprinkles
        • McCormick Neon Pink Food Color if desired
        Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
        Make Box mix according to instructions.
        Lightly spray donut pan with PAM and add batter to the pan. *Tip – place 1/4 of the batter in a quart size baggie and squeeze it into the pan.
        Bake for 10 – 15 minutes and cool on a wire wrack.
        Once donuts are cooled, place half the container of frosting into a microwave safe bowl and melt at 70% power for 30 seconds. Stir and heat again if necessary.
        Dip donut into melted frosting and add sprinkles to decorate.
        For the dark pink stripes, I used McCormick Neon Pink Food Color to darken the melted frosting, then I decorated the donut.
