Chicken and Waffles
About the Dish:
Chicken and Waffles is a classic Southern dish that combines the savory flavors of fried chicken with the sweetness of waffles. The dish is a perfect balance of salty and sweet, crisp and tender. The crispy fried chicken is seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices, while the waffles are light and fluffy. The combination of the two creates a mouthwatering meal that can be enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, or dinner.
|All-purpose flour||2 cups|
|Baking powder||2 teaspoons|
|Maple syrup||1/4 cup|
- Step 1: In a large bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Dip each chicken piece into the egg mixture, then coat it with the flour mixture. Place the coated chicken on a baking sheet and set aside.
- Step 2: Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and place it on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
- Step 3: Preheat a waffle iron and lightly grease it. In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining flour mixture, butter, and maple syrup until well combined. Pour the batter into the preheated waffle iron and cook until golden brown and crispy.
- Step 4: Serve the crispy fried chicken on top of the waffles and drizzle with additional maple syrup. Enjoy!
