Intro: Chicken & Waffles
Fried chicken is great to munch on during the summer, since it's a great BBQ dish. Add a little bit of mustard, and you've got yourself a deliciously spicy and savory meal. However, while watching an episode of "Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives" one time (I don't really remember the exact name), there was one part where a restaurant was serving a Southern specialty called fried chicken & waffles. I thought that looked so good, I've got to try it! So, this is a great recipe to make for the summer and at any time!
Step 1: Ingredients
So, here are some of the ingredients to make your own
- frozen waffles (I am using Aunt Jemina Homestyle)
- frozen chicken wings (I am using Perdue Chicken Wings)
- mustard (regular or honey; I am using honey mustard)
- maple pancake syrup
Step 2: Chicken Wing Prep
When you buy a bag of Perdue chicken wings, there are 3 different cooking techniques. The one that I used a couple of times before was using the skillet. You want to prep your wings and cook them for about 20 to 25 minutes over medium heat.
To bake them in the oven, you will need to bake them in a 400 degree oven for about 18 minutes, turning over occasionally.
If you plan on grilling, set them out on a grilling pan and heat them for about 18 minutes over medium heat.
Step 3: Toaster Oven
Next come the waffles. I am using Aunt Jemina Homestyle, so I needed to preheat my toaster oven to 400 degrees and bake them for 8 minutes until golden brown. Yours does not have to be Aunt Jemina; feel free to use any brand you want.
Step 4: Serve Hot!
Now, arrange everything on a plate and add a few squiggles of maple syrup and honey mustard for a mix of sweet and spicy! You can also prepare a bowl of white rice and serve it on the side for a little extra kick to your classic Southern style dinner!
