Chicken and Waffles Recipe


Fried Chicken

1 (3-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

½ teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

2 cups buttermilk

Vegetable oil, for frying

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons fiesta seasoning


2 cups flour, sifted

2 teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 cups eggnog

2 egg yolks

2 egg whites

4 tablespoons melted butter

Strawberry Butter

2 sticks butter, softened

¾ cup sliced strawberries

1 teaspoon maraschino cherry juice

Hot sauce, for serving

Season chicken with salt, pepper, paprika, poultry seasoning, garlic, and mustard. Pour buttermilk over chicken and mix well. Refrigerate overnight. Combine flour and fiesta spice. In a cast-iron pot, heat 3 inches of oil to 325 F. Place flour in a brown paper bag. One piece at a time, place chicken in bag and shake until chicken is coated. Fry chicken for 15 minutes per side and drain on a wire rack.


Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, whisk eggnog, butter, and egg yolks. In another bowl, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Spray preheated waffle iron with cooking spray. Working in batches, scoop waffle batter into waffle iron and close the top. Cook waffle for 3-4 minutes.  Repeat with remaining batter.


In a food processor, mix butter, berries, and juice. Blend until smooth.


Spread waffles with berry butter and drizzle with maple syrup. Drizzle hot sauce over the chicken. Top waffles with chicken serve.
