Honey fried chicken and waffles are a popular and delicious dish that combines the savory goodness of crispy fried chicken with the sweet and fluffy texture of waffles. Here's a simple recipe to make honey fried chicken and waffles:

Ingredients for chicken and waffles

For the Fried Chicken:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 cups buttermilk

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 teaspoon paprika

Salt and pepper to taste

Vegetable oil for frying

For the Waffles:

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 3/4 cups milk

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Serving:

Honey for drizzling

Maple syrup

Butter

Instructions:

Fried Chicken:

Marinate the chicken breasts in buttermilk for at least 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

In a shallow dish, mix the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

Heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat.

Dredge each chicken breast in the seasoned flour mixture, ensuring they are well-coated.

Fry the chicken until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side. Make sure the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

Remove the fried chicken from the skillet and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

Waffles:

Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

In another bowl, whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Don't overmix; it's okay if there are a few lumps.

Cook the waffles in the preheated waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions until they are golden brown and crisp.
