Fried Chicken & Waffle Fries

Yield: 4 people

Ingredients:

Chicken

3 lbs chicken thighs

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tbsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Re-sealable freezer bag

Vegetable oil for frying

Deep-frying or candy thermometer

Buttermilk Waffles

2 cups all-purpose flour

3 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp sugar

1/4 tsp salt

2 large eggs

4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (plus extra for greasing the iron)

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Also need: waffle iron & maple syrup

Instructions:

Chicken:

1. Place frying oil in a large, deep cast iron skillet (oil should be approximately 1 inch deep; quantity will vary based on pot dimensions). Using deep-frying or candy thermometer, heat to 350 degrees F.

2. Rinse chicken under cold running water and do not pat dry. In a resealable freezer bag, combine the flour with cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper, and mix well. Add the chicken pieces one at a time to the bag, seal, and shake to coat evenly. Remove and place on a wire rack over a baking sheet and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

3. In batches, carefully add the chicken to the hot oil and fry (be sure not to overcrowd pan), turning once, until golden brown and the meat is cooked through (approximately 5-7 minutes per side, with an internal temperature of 165 degrees F). Remove and drain on paper towels.

Waffles:

1. Preheat a waffle iron and lightly grease. Sift the dry ingredients together into a large bowl.

2. In a clean bowl, beat the eggs. Add the butter and buttermilk and beat to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix well.

3. In four batches, pour the batter into the hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown and lightly crisp. Remove and if desired, top with a slice of butter, and serve with the chicken and maple syrup
