Fried Chicken & Red Velvet Waffles [Instructions]

Spicy Buttermilk Fried Chicken

  • In a large mixing basin, combine the chicken tenders, spices, and buttermilk. Massage the marinade into the chicken and refrigerate the covered bowl for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours. After the chicken has marinated, take the bowl from the fridge and let it aside for at least 30 minutes at room temperature. 
  • Combine the flour and spices in a resealable bag. Mix everything. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, then return it to the marinade. Finally, coat the chicken in flour and place it on a rack to allow the crust to stick to the bird. Heat 2-3 inches of oil over medium-high heat in a big cast iron skillet.
  • Finally, coat the chicken in flour again and place it on a rack to allow the crust to stick to the chicken. In a large cast iron skillet, heat 2-3 inches of oil over medium-high heat until the oil reaches 350°F. Cook for 5 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Put over a sheet pan on a wire rack and drain the chicken.

 Red Velvet Waffles

  • To make the Red Velvet Waffles, whisk together the unbleached all-purpose flour, organic whole white wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder in a large mixing bowl. Thoroughly combine the melted butter, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla essence, and white vinegar in a separate basin.
  • Whisk the gel food coloring into the buttermilk mixture with care. Then, stir the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients until smooth and well combined. Allow the batter to rest for at least 10 minutes to allow the wheat flour to hydrate.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s directions for heating your waffle iron. After spraying the waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray, add roughly 1 cup of batter. Close the iron and cook the waffle for at least 3 minutes, until the outside is dry and somewhat crispy. Place the waffles on a wire rack over a sheet pan to prevent them from becoming soggy. Repeat until the batter has been used up.

Syrup Spicy Butter Pecan

  • Boil the water and evaporated cane juice (sugar) in a medium saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Stir in the toasted and chopped pecans to the syrup. Simmer for around 10 minutes on low heat.
  • Whisk in the butter, bourbon, cayenne pepper, and chipotle powder after removing the skillet from the heat. Serve with the chicken and waffles.

Red Velvet Waffle Recipe With Pancake Mix

We’ve got the perfect one for you if you’re looking for a tried and true red velvet waffle recipe. Here’s how to make red velvet waffle batter with pancake mix!

  • Mix 1 cup all-purpose flour with 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon baking powder in a mixing bowl. If using cake mix instead of pancake mix, add 3 tablespoons oil instead of 2 tablespoons butter or margarine.
  • Beat together 2 eggs and 1 cup milk (or buttermilk). Add to dry ingredients along with ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, ¼ teaspoon salt and ⅓ cup sugar; if using cake mix instead of pancake mix, use ½ cup sugar instead of ⅓ cup.
  • Mix until smooth; if necessary, add more milk until desired consistency is achieved.
  • Pour batter into a greased waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Be careful not to overfill your iron; if it is too full, your waffles will be thinner than desired (which isn’t necessarily bad).
