Because you shouldn’t have to compromise for the culture just to enjoy brunch! I mean, this is perfect for just about any occasion. Plus, those refrigerator biscuits are so clutch, right? I looooooove them.

3. To make the gravy, cook the sausage, garlic, and onion together in the butter until the sausage is just cooked
through. Add in the fresh thyme and flour and cook for about 60 seconds while constantly stirring.
4. Add in the half and half, being sure to scrape the bottom of the pan. Once the mixture comes to a boil, it will
thicken. Season with salt and pepper.
5. To serve, thread the chicken and biscuits on a skewer and serve with a heaping amount of sausage & herb gravy for
