The song was the first one that Akins and Hayslip had ever penned with Ford. It was inspired in part by the country rapper's breakfast that morning. Akins recalled to The Boot
: "It was like 9AM, and Colt came in with a box of fried chicken and biscuits! [Laughs]
We had no idea what to write about. Then I looked at what Colt was eating, and I said, "Dude, we've got to write a song called 'Chicken and Biscuits.' Who comes in at 9 o'clock in the morning eating fried chicken for breakfast?!
He says, 'Well, how are we going to write a song about chicken and biscuits?' I just laughed and said,'I don't know.'
Then Ben jumps in and was like, 'Well, we've got to put a girl in it!' That's what we always say ever since we wrote [Brooks & Dunn's] 'Put a Girl In It
.' So we had to somehow turn a song about chicken and biscuits and put a girl in it somewhere.
We sat around, and we thought about it. Then it came to us: You love this girl so much, and she's everything to you that you can't get enough... kind of like chicken and biscuits! I can't get enough of chicken and biscuits, and I can't get enough of this girl. The end of the chorus is, 'Lord, have mercy, I love her kisses, and I can't get enough... kind of like chicken and biscuits.'"
