Chicken 'n' Waffles with Spicy Sweet Sausage Gravy

CHICKEN 'N' WAFFLES WITH SPICY SWEET SAUSAGE GRAVY

I bought a waffle iron a while back and was excited to try it out and I knew exactly what I was going to make first...chicken and waffles! And this sauce is the perfect thing to go with it. You get everything! Crunchy chicken, crispy soft waffles, sweet, salty, spicy...ticks all the boxes!! Give this a try! You will not be disappointed, guaranteed!

Here's what you'll need

For the waffles

  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

For the chicken

  • 2 chicken breast (cut into strips or chunks)
  • 4 cups Corn Flakes
  • 2 eggs (whisked)
  • ½ cup flour (more or less)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tbsp mustard (any kind you like...and maybe more if you like it punchier)
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 small onion (finely minced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (finely minced)

  • 2 tbsp parsley (fresh chopped)

  8. now, make the waffles...seperate the egg yolk from the white into two bowls

  9. whisk the egg yolk with the milk and slowly add the melted butter (be careful not to cook the egg)

  10. then add the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt and whisk together until just combined, and some lumps are fine

  16. in the meantime, make the sauce

  17. sautee the onions and garlic in butter and cayenne until translucent and fragrant

  18. add the sausage meat (cut the sausage casing all along the sausage and peal away) and gently cook while mashing with the back of a wooden spoon or spatula to break it up until just cooked but not browned

  19. add the milk and whisk in, simmer until thickened and add the parsley

  20. with all the parts ready, you can assemble, place the waffles onto a warmed plate, top with chicken and drizzle generously with gravy and syrup and garnish with chilli slices and green onions if you like
