Ingredient Quantity
Chicken 4 pieces
All-purpose flour 1 cup
Eggs 2
Milk 1 cup
Butter 4 tablespoons
Baking powder 2 teaspoons
Salt 1/2 teaspoon
Pepper 1/2 teaspoon

Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and melted butter. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • Step 2: Preheat a waffle iron and lightly grease with cooking spray. Pour the batter onto the preheated waffle iron, close the lid, and cook until golden brown and crisp. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Step 3: In a deep frying pan, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Dip each piece of chicken into the flour mixture, then into the egg mixture, and back into the flour mixture to coat. Place the coated chicken pieces into the hot oil and fry until golden brown and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Transfer the fried chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  • Step 4: Serve the crispy fried chicken on top of the warm waffles. Drizzle with maple syrup or hot sauce, if desired. Enjoy!
