Baking powder 1 tablespoon
Salt 1 teaspoon
Black pepper 1 teaspoon
Egg 1
Milk 1 1/2 cups

Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and black pepper.
  • Step 2: In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and vegetable oil.
  • Step 3: Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, whisking until just combined. The batter should be slightly lumpy.

  • Step 7: Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Dip each piece into the remaining flour mixture, coating evenly.
  • Step 8: Carefully place the chicken pieces into the hot oil and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 8-10 minutes depending on the size of the chicken pieces.
  • Step 9: Remove the chicken from the oil and drain on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • Step 10: Serve the fried chicken pieces on top of the waffles with butter and maple syrup. Enjoy!
