Ingredients

Waffle Mix:

2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup oil

Lucky J's Spice:

2 cups all-purpose flour

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons Spanish paprika

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon dried rosemary

1 tablespoon dried sage

1 tablespoon white pepper

Fried Chicken:

2 cups fry flour

2 tablespoons salt

2 tablespoons pepper

2 cups Lucky J's spice

2 cups buttermilk

1 chicken, cut into 3 pieces

Directions

  1. For the waffle mix: Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl and mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, 1 cup water, and oil. Whisk in dry ingredients while slowly adding the remaining water until the proper 'loose batter' consistency is reached. Allow the batter to sit for 15 to 20 minutes before using.
  2. For the Lucky J's spice mix: Combine the flour, 2 tablespoons salt, 1 tablespoon pepper, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary, sage, and white pepper in a bowl until flour is evenly colored.
  3. For the fried chicken: Heat a deep fryer to 300 degrees F. Put the fry flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Add the buttermilk to another shallow bowl. Put the spiced flour in a third shallow bowl. Dredge the chicken in the fry flour, shaking off the excess flour. Next, dip the chicken into the buttermilk wash until thoroughly coated. Finally, dredge the chicken in spiced flour until well coated, shaking off the excess flour. Fry for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. If a fryer is not available, you may pan fry the chicken in 2-inches of hot canola oil. 
  4. Prepare the waffles on a waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions. Assemble the fried chicken on the waffles. Serve.
