Chicken coated with waffle batter, flour, and seasonings, then deep fried until it reaches golden perfection!
This brunch season everyone will be serving the same ol’ thing.. Bacon, Sausage, Eggs, Muffins, and etc. Not me! I will be showing out with unforgettable brunch menus! I’m talking about fabulous breakfast scrambles, cheese grits, homemade hash browns, and assortment of fresh ice teas, and of course my infamous Waffle Fried Chicken!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably remember that I uploaded this recipe several years ago. However, I’ve give this recipe a facelift since then. I now brine the chicken overnight prior to frying. I also season the chicken differently.
This chicken is perfect to serve for breakfast ( serve with grits, OMG… It’s FIRE!), brunch, or any other meals. It can also be served as an appetizer!
I have so many fried chicken recipes. Check these out as well!
