  • 6 pieces frozen waffles
  • ¼ cup whipped butter
  • ½ cup maple syrup

Fried chicken ingredients

  • 1 lb. chicken cut into serving pieces
  • 3 to 4 cups cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  • Heat the oil to 350F. Note: it will be best to use a cooking thermometer to monitor the heat.
  • Rub salt and pepper all over the chicken. Let is stay for at least 5 minutes.
  • Arrange the flour in a wide plate or bowl. Dredge the chicken in flour and then dip it in the beaten egg mixture. Roll the chicken back into the bowl with flour making sure that it is completely coated.
  • Deep fry the chicken pieces until the internal temperature reaches 165F. Note: The time this process will depend on the part of the chicken used and the thickness of the cut. Dark meat should be done within 12 to 14 minutes. The white meat of the chicken cooks faster – usually around 8 to 12 minutes. However, the use of a meat/cooking temperature is still recommended for best results.
  • Remove the fried chicken from the pot or deep fryer and then arrange it over a wire rack so that excess oil can freely drip.
  • Prepare the frozen waffles by placing it in the oven or oven toaster until done. Use the directions from the package instructions.
  • Arrange the waffles and fried chicken in a plate. Top the waffles with a scoop of whipped butter and some maple syrup. Enjoy your meal.
