How to Make A New York Must try... Chicken & Waffles


  1. Fried Chicken:
    In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, water, and hot sauce together. Reserve.
  2. In another medium bowl, combine the self rising flour and 1 tsp black pepper.
  3. Sprinkle the chicken pieces generously with salt, then lightly with garlic powder.
  4. Dip the seasoned chicken pieces into the egg mixture, then coat in the seasoned flour.
  5. Pour oil into a deep pot up to half full with oil, then heat over medium till hot enough for frying (350 degrees F as measured on a candy thermometer).
  6. Submerge the chicken pieces carefully into the hot oil. Let the chicken fry till crispy and cooked through. Dark meat will take 13-14 minutes, white meat 8-10 minutes.
  7. Place fried chicken on paper towels to drain off excess oil. Serve.
  8. Waffles:
    Preheat your waffle iron. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, salt, sugar and baking powder.
  9. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the eggs, then beat in the lukewarm milk, butter and vanilla till well combined.
  10. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir will a batter forms. A few small lumps are okay.
  11. Pour the batter onto your waffle iron in batches. Amount per waffle will vary according to the size of your waffle iron. Let the waffles cook till golden brown and crisp.
  12. Serve hot waffles with warm fried chicken, warmed maple syrup, and butter on the side.

    Optional Kosher Modifications: Substitute almond or soy milk for buttermilk, use a non-hydrogentated butter substitute (like Earth Balance) to replace the butter.
  13. Place fried chicken over waffle and drizzle with melted butter and maple syrup... (hot sauce is optional, but very yummy) and enjoy.
