I love dishes that can be eaten any time of the day like Chicken and Waffles. The whipped cinnamon vanilla butter gives this dish a special touch. If you have a difficult time deciding whether you want something savory or sweet, then this is the perfect recipe for you. Enjoy!
1In a clean bowl, add buttermilk, chicken strips, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix, cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 hrs. or overnight.
2When you are ready to fry the chicken, add the flour, paprika, garlic powder, and salt and pepper into plastic bag. Mix. With the help of a fork, drop chicken strips into bag, close and mix well until chicken is evenly covered with the flour.
3Heat frying oil over medium heat.
4Carefully place each strip into the hot oil and fry on each side until chicken is cooked and outside is golden brown. Once chicken is thoroughly cooked, remove from oil and place on paper towels to remove excess oil.
Mix all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated but do not over mix; a few lumps are OK. Set batter aside. Warm up waffle maker to preferred setting. Remember to spray the waffle maker with oil or butter before pouring batter to avoid waffle from sticking.
6Cinnamon Vanilla Butter:
Add ingredients and whip with fork until well incorporated.
7To serve, place the waffle on a plate, add two chicken strips, and top with a dollop of butter and a drizzle of syrup. Enjoy!
