Cajun Fried Chicken with Cheddar Waffles

  • Makes: 4-6 servings
  • Prep: 15 min
  • Cook: 20 min
  • Total Time: 35 min


  • 12 pieces of chicken thighs and drumsticks (bone-in)
  • Peanut oil or Crisco for frying
  • Buttermilk waffle mix
  • ¾ c shredded cheddar cheese
Buttermilk Marinade
  • 1 qt buttermilk
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ c Frank's Hot Sauce
  • 2 pinches kosher salt
  • 2 ½ c all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • ½ tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
Egg Wash
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ c heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tbsp paprika


  1. In a Ziploc bag combine buttermilk marinade ingredients. Add chicken to the bag, seal, and toss to coat well. Remove as much air as possible from the bag and refrigerate for 2 hours minimum and up to 12 hours.
  2. Mix breading ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Combine egg wash ingredients in a medium sized bowl and refrigerate.
  4. Prepare waffle batter according to box instructions and set aside. Add extra butter for a crispier waffle.
  5. Heat oil to 350-365°F for chicken and preheat waffle iron.
  6. Remove chicken from buttermilk marinade, dredge in breading mixture, and then coat with chilled egg wash. Repeat this process again to ensure a nice crust on the chicken.
  7. Once oil reaches frying temperature, add coated chicken. Do not to overcrowd the pan. After 4-6 minutes, flip the chicken over to cook any exposed crust.
  8. Spray the waffle maker liberally with a non-stick spray and sprinkle 1/2 cup cheddar cheese into the maker. Add waffle batter, top with 1/4 cup of cheese, and close to cook.
  9. Serve waffle on plate or platter with 2-3 pieces of fried chicken and serve with gravy and syrup. Yum!
