ground black pepper
peanut oil for frying
dry mustard powder
8 thin slices
plain frozen waffles
This is a very good recipe, especially the chicken coating. I put buffalo sauce on the chicken and omitted the horseradish. Was excellent.
Mercy! Good eatin'! I served with french fried sweet potatoes dusted with sugar and cinnamon; creamy coleslaw with some chopped jalepenos, celery seed and green onion. Might want to have an antacid around....
This recipe is good.
This is actually pretty darn good. I even made my own waffles, though I think store bought ones would be just as good (and easier). The sweetness of the maple syrup contrasts really well with the spicy chicken. I will definitely make it again.
I used 4 chicken breasts that were cut smaller and lightly pounded instead of chicken tenders (or is that the same thing?). For the egg mixture, I only used a teaspoon of each seasoning as using a tablespoon of each seemed wasteful and unnecessary flavour-wise. That said, I would probably use an egg or two less next time and substituted soy milk for the heavy cream. For the dry mixture I omitted the salt. Next time I'd use a 1:1 ratio for the flour and cornstarch as there was plenty leftover, even after double dipping. I didn't have peanut oil, so I used vegetable oil. I did not deep-fry; I did them chicken in a pan with the oil as needed and did them in batches. The sauce is delicious! I probably used only a half cup of mayo (whatever was left in my small jar) and added everything it and shook it to combine. I didn't have prepared horseradish but had the dry (powder) kind so I used two teaspoons of that; I'd probably do 1:1 ratio for the mustard and horseradish powders next time. The maple syrup was spot on. Had to skip the bacon and used processed cheese slices. I used regular waffles this time around, but would use Belgian ones next time as they are larger and easier to grip (maybe make homemade cornmeal Belgian waffles? I seriously have to get a waffle-maker!). I also added lettuce and tomato to my sandwich. DELICIOUS! Served it with some cinnamon-spiced sweet potato fries from AR. Definitely going to make it again.
When I first saw this recipe, I really wanted to make it. I've heard about chicken and waffles for years but never tried them. What held me back was the hi calories of the recipe, so I used lower fat cal versions of the same items in this recipe and it was awesome. I used a morningstar farms chicken patti, nutrigrain waffles, weight watchers cheese and fat free mayo and turkey pepper bacon I add the cayenne that would have gone inthe chicken coating in the sauce. This turned out really well.. I loved it. I can only imagine how awesome it is with the higher cal ingredients.
