Drive yourself to the nearest waffle house and order however many waffles you like. I’m assuming it would be 1 per person. I personally would order the pecan waffles just because it kicks ass. Pay for the waffles and drive yourself home immediately while it’s still hot.
Flour Mixture for the Chicken
2 1/2 cup self rising flour
2-3 tbsp. black pepper
2-3 tbsp. garlic powder
2-3 tbsp. onion powder
2 tsp. salt
canola oil but preferably peanut oil for frying
In a mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
Meanwhile, place some paper towels on a pretty sturdy platter before placing the fried chicken on top. This will help suck some of the oil off the chicken so it won’t be so greasy.
Heat the oil in a deep pot to about 350 degrees if you have a thermostat. Be sure you have enough oil in the pot to cover the chicken so it’ll fry evenly. You can test the heat by dropping a bit of the flour in, if it starts sizzling then it’s ready.
When the oil is nice and hot, use a tong to pick the chicken out of the buttermilk and dip it into the flour on both side evenly. Then drop it into the oil to fry. Repeat until all the chicken are done.
Fry the chicken to a golden crispy brown. Be sure to flip it so that it’ll be golden brown on both side. And make sure it’s cook thoroughly from the inside. Dark meat would take longer to cook than white meat.
When the chicken is done, use a tong to take it out and place it on the platter. Pat it bit to get rid of some of that grease, unless you like grease. 🙂 Whenever frying something, you want to season it with a pinch of salt once you take it out of the fryer. This gives it an extra kick of flavor. Trust me, you’ll thank me later. 😉
You get a big plate, place the waffle in the center of the plate, spread it with some butter, put a piece of fwied chicken on top and you generously pour the maple syrup over it. Then you dive in for the kill. Be sure to kiss the chef to show your appreciation. 😉
