Chicken and Waffles

Haven’t had the urge to make or try the trending Chicken and Waffles craze. It’s never been in my Southern meals and didn't notice it until my late 30’s. Throughout life pancakes and sausage was always a treat when the syrup got on the sausage so I’m not a hater of Chicken-n-Waffles. Nevertheless syrup on fried chicken still has me a little conflicted. Long story short a customer asked why I don’t use more Pepper Bee in my nightly IG dinners. One being, I don’t generally eat meals with a lot of sugar. She didn’t care and insist on more Pepper Bee ideas… This is my best Pepper Bee recipe to date and good it was. However, I’m still conflicted with sugar (honey) bombed recipe as dinner.

Ingredients

Main Parts

  • 11.6 oz Waffles (Kellogg’s Eggo, Thick and Fluffy)
  • 1 lb chicken tenders
  • 12 oz bacon (used thin)
  • ¼ cup Pepper Bee
  • 1 tbs Sowflakes

Brine Mix

  • 1/4 gal water
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup Cottonmouth (optional)

Instructions

  • Mix the brine above well in a large bowl. Enough to hold brine and all the chicken tendies.
  • Clean your chicken breast tenders. This is my most important part is to get the white tendon out and the thin membrane off.
  • Place chicken in brine, gently stir, and slightly squeeze chicken.
  • Place brine chicken in refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes.
  • I grilling start charcoal.
  • Drain chicken tenders in strainer and let dry or pat dry.
  • Wrap a piece of bacon around the chicken and pierce both ends with a skewer. It should be in the shape of a shrimp. Do all of them until you run out.
  • Sprinkle Sowflakes all over the skewers chicken.
  • Grill the chicken skewers or cook them how you want/like.
  • 10. Set a stick of butter on counter to let it start softening.
  • 11. Bring the cooked chicken in and pull from the skewers.
  • 12. Heat up you waffles in the toaster.
  • 13. Once toasted cooks the waffles you’re ready to plate.
  • 14. Here’s how I stacked it from bottom to top. Waffle, butter, 2 chicken tendies, pour some Pepper Bee, waffle, butter, 2 chicken tendies, then lastly the rest of Pepper Bee!
  • 15. Get after it 😉

Notes

The brine (and squeeze) will insure a tender piece of chicken. This is very helpful because whether young, old, free range, steroid free, or from one vendor to the next, chicken’s meat varies greatly.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
