  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Chicken & Waffles
  • peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders (boneless, skinless)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup Panko
  • kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (24 ounces) package Paula Deen's Biscuit Mix
  • real maple syrup or hot sauce, for serving
  • Heat oil to 350°F in a deep fryer.
  • Season the chicken tenders on both sides with salt and pepper. Whisk flour and garlic powder together in a medium casserole dish. Add buttermilk to a second casserole dish, and the panko to a third casserole dish.
  • Dredge the seasoned tenders through the flour, the buttermilk, and then the panko. Add chicken to the deep fryer and fry for 4 minutes, until golden brown and crisp, and an instant read thermometer reads 165 degrees. Drain on a paper towel lined plate.
  • Prepare waffle batter as directed on the back of packaging. Cook the waffles according to the directions for your waffle iron. Usually it will take 4 to 6 minutes for the waffles to turn golden and the waffle iron to stop releasing steam, which indicates that they're done.
  • Serve waffles topped with the fried chicken. Serve with hot sauce and maple syrup.
