Introduction: Baked Chicken and Waffles
Chicken and waffles is my new favorite comfort food. It doesn't take too long to prepare and cook this recipe and the pay-off is so good.
Step 1: Ingredients
For this recipe you will need:
3 boneless chicken breast
For the breading:
4 c cornflakes
1 tsp cumin seed
1 tsp oregano
2 large egg whites
1/2 tsp cayenne powder
1 tsp basil
1/4 c buttermilk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp thyme
For the waffles:
2 c flour
1 3/4 c milk
2 tbsp sugar
1/3 c vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp honey
Step 2: Mix the Seasonings
Mix all of the seasonings (everything except the eggs, milk and cornflakes) in a bowl.
Step 3: Prep Your Chicken
Cut the chicken breast in half, length-wise.
Step 4: Eggs&Milk
Whisk the eggs and milk together.
Step 5: Crush Those Flakes!
Crush the cornflakes until it has the appearance of breadcrumbs. You can use a food processor on the pulse setting, or putting the flakes in a baggy and crushing them by hand.
Step 6: Assembly Line
Make an assembly line of your flour mixture, the egg wash and the breadcrumbs. One at a time, coat both sides of the chicken in each and then place the chicken on a baking tray that's been coated with non-stick cooking spray.
Step 7: Before Putting the Chicken in the Oven...
Spray the chicken with the non-stick cooking spray too.
Step 8: Bake!
Bake in the oven that's been preheated to 450° for 20 minutes.
Step 9: Make Those Waffles!
While the chicken is baking, it's time to start making the waffles.
Step 10: Mix Those Dry Ingredients
In a bowl, combine the baking powder, flour, sugar and salt.
Step 11: In Another Bowl..
Now in a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk and oil together.
Step 12: Now Add Them Together.
Combine both bowls together and mix thoroughly. It's okay to have lumps in the mixture.
Step 13: Top It Off.
Add the honey and blend it in.
Step 14: Cook the Waffles
Using the manufacturer's guide for your waffle iron, preheat the iron and cook the waffle batter.
Step 15: 20 Minutes Is Up!
Remove the chicken from the oven.
Step 16: Enjoy!
