Its Danny the Resident Chef. This week we start the season by playing the Atlanta Falcons. The menu for this week will be Chicken and Waffles..no joke! So make a batch of this and head to your friends house, or the tailgate.
Chicken and Waffles
- 1 whole chicken cut into 8 pieces
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 tblsp of Seasoned Salt
- 2 tsp of cayenne pepper
- 2 cups of buttermilk
- Your favorite waffle recipe (eggo waffles are okay if you do not own a waffle iron)
Place your cut up chicken in a shallow pan. Pour buttermilk with 1tsp of cayenne mixed in. Leave aside for 6 hours or overnight. Take chicken out of buttermilk marinade, but do not pat dry. Coat chicken with seasoned flour. Heat oil, or shortening in a deep fryer according to manufacturers instructions. If you do not have a fryer grab a deep heavy based skillet. Fill halfway with oil as the oil will expand when heated. Cook chicken in oil for 15 to 20 minutes or until the thermometer reads 165 degrees. Serve with fresh waffles with honey butter and a little bit of hot sauce.
