Fried Chicken & Waffles

If you've never had fried chicken and waffles, you are missing out. 


We enjoyed some pretty decent fried chicken in New Orleans, but none of it compared to the chicken that Christopher's parents make.  We marinated chicken breasts overnight and then battered and fried them this morning to serve alongside waffles.  A sprinkle of powdered sugar and a drizzle of syrup, and breakfast was served.

The Best Fried Chicken
(Adapted from Paula Deen)

3 large chicken breasts (or chicken pieces) cut in half
2 eggs
3/4 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce
1 T water (or so)
self rising flour (a cup or two)
salt, pepper, pinch garlic powder
peanut oil for frying

Beat the eggs.  Add hot sauce and water.  Marinate the chicken in this mixture (overnight if you have the time).  Mix some self rising flour, with a pinch of garlic powder or two and a bit of salt and pepper.  Heat the peanut oil on medium.  Dip chicken into the flour mixture and fry in the oil until browned and cooked through - check with a meat thermometer.  

Do you like fried chicken?  With waffles?

Fried chicken isn't my favorite, but I eat it a lot when I go home and it's definitely delicious on occasion.

I do love fried chicken but I have not had it with waffles. I bet it would be delish, though!
