This perfect harmony of succulent fried chicken and fluffy waffles is a match made in culinary heaven. So, grab your apron and let’s get started on this delightful adventure!


To create this crispy delight, you will need the following ingredients for one portion:

  • 1 chicken breast (200g / 7oz)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (125g / 4.4oz)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (5g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (1.5g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (1g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (2g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (2g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder (2g)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (120ml)
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 2 waffles


  1. Start by preparing the chicken. Cut the chicken breast into tender-sized pieces, ensuring they are of similar thickness for even cooking.
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix well to create the perfect blend of flavors.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and egg until they are well combined.
  4. Dip each chicken piece into the buttermilk and egg mixture, allowing any excess to drip off. Then, coat the chicken generously in the seasoned flour mixture, ensuring an even coating.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large skillet, ensuring there is enough oil to fully submerge the chicken pieces. The ideal temperature for frying is around 180°C (350°F).
  6. Gently place the coated chicken into the hot oil, being cautious to avoid overcrowding the pan. Fry the chicken for about 6-8 minutes, or until it turns golden brown and reaches an internal temperature of 75°C (165°F).
  7. Once cooked, transfer the chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to remove any excess oil.

Now, let’s move on to the waffles:

  1. While the chicken is frying, prepare the waffles according to your preferred recipe or use pre-made waffles. Toast the waffles until they are golden and crispy.
  2. Finally, it’s time to bring harmony to your plate. Serve the crispy fried chicken alongside the warm and fluffy waffles, and drizzle with your favorite syrup or sauce. The sweet and savory flavors will dance together in perfect symphony, creating a truly unforgettable dining experience.


  • For an extra crispy chicken coating, you can double-dip the chicken pieces in the buttermilk and flour mixture.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the seasoned flour mixture.
  • Experiment with different syrups or sauces to elevate the flavor profile. Maple syrup, honey mustard, or even a spicy sriracha mayo can add a delightful twist to this classic dish.
  • Don’t forget to preheat your oven to a low temperature and keep the cooked chicken warm in it while frying subsequent batches. This will ensure your chicken remains crispy and hot throughout the entire meal.
