Prepare The Biscuit Dough
Sift the flour, baking soda and baking powder into a medium bowl. Cut in the butter.
Gradually add the milk until a soft dough forms. Knead for 30 seconds on a floured surface.
Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out 6 round biscuits. Place on a greased baking sheet.
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Set aside and wait to bake these until you have prepared a couple other things first.
Prepare The Chicken To Be Fried
Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan with enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until softened. Drain and return the potatoes to the pan.
Add the butter, milk and season to taste with salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher.
Fry The Chicken
Add enough canola oil to the skillet with the bacon grease to make it about 1/4 inch deep.
Add the coated chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through.
While the chicken and potatoes are cooking, prepare the chipotle cream sauce.
Whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice in a stainless steel bowl until they thicken and double in size. Add the cayenne, salt, chipotle and sauce.
Place the bowl over the saucepan with the potatoes. Keep whisking and slowly pour in the melted butter.
Keep whisking until thickened. Keep warm until ready to serve.
*Note: if the sauce thickens up on you, just whisk in a little warm water before serving.
Cook The Eggs and Cheese
Whisk the eggs with salt and pepper.
Heat the butter in a small skillet. Add the eggs and cook until done.
After the eggs are cooked. Add the slices of mozzarella cheese to the skillet to heat them up. Cook for about 30 seconds total just to make them slightly melted. Be careful not to make a melted cheese mess.
Now it’s time for assembly. On top of a large platter, layer in this order:
