If you have never had Fried Chicken and Waffles, you just have never lived. This is one of my favorite weeknight meals because it's fairly simple to put together, tastes delicious, and everyone loves it. It's pretty much a one meal dinner. If you like cooking "breakfast for dinner" every now and then, you will love Fried Chicken & Waffles!

- Badder for your favorite waffles (or if you are in a time crunch you can use frozen - but fresh just taste so much better and really aren't that hard to make. I like to use the recipe on the back of the Bisquick box)
-2 lbs chicken tenderloin (or you can cut chicken breasts into strips)
-1 cup milk
-1/4 cup hot sauce
-1 1/2 cup flour
-1 3/4 teaspoons salt
-3/4 teaspoons pepper
-2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
-6 TBLS Butter
1/4 cup minced onion
-3 cups chicken broth
-peanut oil for frying
- Maple syrup for topping
Let's Get Cookin'
1. Mix together the milk and hot sauce. Add the chicken and set aside.
3. Dredge each chicken strip in the flour mixture, making sure it's evenly coated. Set the pieces aside and allow to sit for about 20 minutes. This gives the flour mixture time to fully stick to the meat - keeping more of it on the chicken and less falling off during the frying process. Keep the left over flour mixture, you'll need it for the gravy.
