I have been hearing about fried chicken and waffles for a while now, they seem to be trending right now.
My husband and I have never had fried chicken and waffles, seems like a weird combo to me ;)
I read a few different recipes and came up with this little slider that we both liked.
What you will need is:
For the waffle's:
Waffle batter (follow directions on packaging, make however many you think you will need, or want)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning ( I used Tony's
4 Large chicken breasts cut into 3x3 inch pieces (approximately slider size)
2 Tablespoons of hot sauce (I used Franks
1/3 cup milk (or buttermilk if you have it)
1 Cup flour
1 Tablespoon of Lawyr's Seasoned Salt
1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
3 Cups pre-shredded coleslaw mix
1/2 Cup mayo
2 Tablespoons Sour cream
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons purple onion
1 Tablespoon sweet pickle, diced
1 Tablespoon jalapeno peppers, diced
1 Cup mayo
2 Tablespoons Sriracha
Oil for frying
Did you ever think I was going to finish with that list of ingredients?! Ya me too!
How to make these:
I started with the chicken
Heat your oil for frying (a trick how to know your oil is ready, stick the skinny end of a wooden spoon in the oil, if it starts forming bubbles, you should be ready!).
Cut your chicken into approximately 3x3 inch pieces
In a bowl mix your wet ingredients
In another bowl mix the dry ingredients
Dip the chicken into the wet then the dry mixtures, now into the hot oil and brown (about 3 minutes)
Place your chicken into a baking dish and top with a dollop of butter cover with tinfoil and bake at 350 for one hour
While your chicken is cooking prepare your slaw mixture
In a bowl mix your ingredients, place in the fridge to chill
Now make your sauce by mixing the Sriracha
and mayo, also place in the fridge to chill
Get our your handy waffle maker, I love these things, so much more fun that pancakes !
Follow the directions on making your waffles, add in the cheese, onions and seasoning.
Once your chicken in done cooking assemble your sliders
Take a triangle wedge of waffle, slather on your mayo/ Sriracha mixture
Place fried chicken on top then add your spicy slaw mix and top with another wedge of waffle.
Hope you enjoy!
