Potato & Chive Buttermilk Waffles with Spicy Sage Oven Fried Chicken

Potato & Chive Buttermilk Waffles with Spicy Sage Oven Fried Chicken Recipe

The challenge is to make chicken and waffles. I live in the south and on occasion will order chicken and waffles when I’m out at a restaurant or food truck, but I’ve never made it at home. I didn’t want to make any chicken and waffles; I wanted to switch things up from the normal and put my twist on the classic chicken and waffles dish. I figured my recipe for fluffy Potato & Chive Buttermilk Waffles with Spicy Sage Oven Fried Chicken would be just what the doctor ordered!

Potato & Chive Buttermilk Waffles with Spicy Sage Baked “Fried” Chicken

To complete this challenge I used my KitchenAid® Classic Plus® Series 4.5-Quart Stand Mixer and my KitchenAid® Waffle Baker. I received my Waffle Baker as a wedding gift from co-workers almost 6 years ago. We make a lot of waffles in my house. What I love about the KitchenAid® Waffle Baker is that you can bake two waffles at one time. Making breakfast or breakfast for dinner a snap to whip up!

Spicy Sage Oven Fried Chicken 1 (1)

For the Spicy Sage Oven Fried Chicken you’ll want to place the buttermilk, Louisiana Hot Sauce, and dried sage into a gallon-size bag. Mix it together and then place the pieces of the chicken into the bag. Seal it and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

During the last few minutes of marinating place the all-purpose flour, corn flakes, sage, salt, and black pepper into a KitchenAid® Food Processor. Give it a whirl for 10-15 seconds until the corn flakes are broken up. Place the mixture into a shallow dish. Preheat the oven 350 degrees Fahrenheit and then get ready to coat the chicken. I like to use a wire cookie rack on top of a baking sheet. I line the baking sheet with parchment paper for easier clean up toward the end. One-by-one remove the chicken pieces from the buttermilk mixture and roll it around the breading. Bake for 60 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Potato & Chive Buttermilk Waffles 1 Mixing Batter

While the chicken is cooking it’s time to work on the Potato & Chive Buttermilk Waffle batter. Pre-heat the KitchenAid® Waffle Baker. While the Waffle Baker is preheating, place 2 large eggs, 2 cups buttermilk, 1 stick of melted unsalted butter, and minced chives into the KitchenAid® Classic Plus® Series 4.5-Quart Stand Mixer. Mix with the flat beater attachment on “stir” setting for 30 seconds.

In a separate bowl, add the dry ingredients; all purpose flour, instant mashed potatoes, garlic powder, sugar, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on “stir” setting for 10 seconds then bump up to speed 2 for 20 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and mix for 5 additional seconds. The batter will be lumpy—it’s ok.

Once Waffle Baker is preheated, place one cup of waffle batter into the Waffle Baker. I like to use a large soup ladle. My soup ladle holds a half-cup, so I’ll pour 2 ladles full of batter. Then, using the back of the ladle I swirl the batter around ensuring I’ve covered all the nooks and crannies of the KitchenAid® Waffle Baker.

Once batter is in the Waffle Baker, close the lid, and flip it over. Bake each waffle for 4:15 each.  Carefully remove the waffles from the baker (I like to use a fork, but be careful not to scratch your precious Waffle Baker), and place on a wire rack to cool. This will help prevent the bottom from getting soggy. Repeat this step until you have 4 waffles. If the waffles are ready before the chicken I’ll place them on the wire rack on a cookie sheet in the oven for a few minutes to heat them back up. And if for some reason you have leftover waffles, you can always freeze them in a freezer bag (reheat by toasting in a toaster oven).

Once the chicken is cooked it’s time to dig in. I like to top off my chicken and waffles with some fresh chives and a drizzle of maple syrup. I’m glad I was able to challenge myself at home and bring a southern classic to life in my kitchen. I love the sweet, spicy, and savory flavors that come from this dish. It’s a great recipe to entertain with—you will wow your guest with a Southern classic recipe.

Potato & Chive Buttermilk Waffles with Spicy Sage Oven Fried Chicken

Makes 4-6 servings

INGREDIENTS

For the spicy sage oven fried chicken

1 5-pound whole chicken, cut up into pieces

1 cup buttermilk

3 tablespoons Louisiana Hot Sauce

1 tablespoon dried sage

1 cup all-purpose flour

3 cup corn flakes

2 tablespoon sage

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 stick salted butter, melted

Maple syrup and diced chives for garnish

 

For the potato and chive buttermilk waffles

2 large eggs

2 cups buttermilk

1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1 tablespoon chives, minced

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, spoon & sweep method

1/2 cup instant mashed potato flakes

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

DIRECTIONS

For the spicy sage oven fried chicken

In a gallon size freezer bag, place chicken breast in bag. In a bowl whisk together the buttermilk, Louisiana hot sauce, and sage. Pour over chicken breast. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add the all-purpose flour, corn flakes, sage, salt, and black pepper into KitchenAid® Food Processor. Puree for 10-15 seconds until corn flakes are broken up.

Remove marinated chicken from refrigerator. Pour flour mixture into a shallow bowl, coat all sides of the chicken.

Using a baking sheet that has a wire rack on top, spray with cooking spray and line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the chicken on the wire rack. Bake for 60 minutes (or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit).

Remove chicken from oven, using a basting brush—brush butter on top (this will remove the white flour look on the chicken and give more flavor). Once all the butter is used and the chicken is well coated place the chicken back in the oven and broil on low for an additional 3-5 minutes (for golden brown skin).  Serve chicken immediately with waffles and top with diced chives and maple syrup.

For the potato and chive buttermilk waffles

Preheat the KitchenAid® Waffle Baker.

While Waffle Baker is preheating, place 2 large eggs, 2 cups buttermilk, 1 stick of melted unsalted butter, and minced chives into a KitchenAid® Classic Plus® Series 4.5-Quart Stand Mixer. Mix with flat beater attachment on “stir” setting for 30 seconds.

In a separate bowl, add the dry ingredients; all purpose flour, instant mashed potatoes, garlic powder, sugar, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on “stir” setting for 10 seconds then bump up to speed 2 for 20 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, mix for 5 more seconds. Batter will be lumpy—it’s ok.

Once KitchenAid® Waffle Baker is preheated, place one cup of waffle batter into the baker. Bake for 4:15 each. Let cool on a wire rack.

Cook’s notes

Chicken was tested in an oven on convection mode at 325.

Depending on the appetite of your guest will depend on your portion. I like to serve anywhere from 2-4 Potato & Chive Buttermilk Waffles with 1-2 pieces of chicken. If making sides to go with this recipe you could feed 8 guests giving them each one piece of chicken and 2 pieces of waffle.
