Does a song ever remind you of food? That is the theme of this weeks #SundaySupper. After taking a few months off from the group, I was excited to join back with this theme. I have quite a few songs stuck in my head after reading the lineup of recipes the group has pulled together this week!
I knew instantly what I wanted to make and for this music inspired #SundaySupper. It wasn't a song that inspired me, instead it was the "Empress of Soul", Glady's Knight. One of my favorite tourist restaurants in Atlanta is Gladys Knights Chicken and Waffles. This weeks theme inspired me to make this dish at home.
For the Chicken:
2 cups buttermilk (I make my own - it's super easy, 1 cup of milk to 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, combine, mix well and let sit for 5 minutes)
3 cups self rising flour
House seasoning to season your flour - I use a combo of cayanne pepper, garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika, Cavenders Greek seasoning
Peanut or Canola oil to fry
Let chicken tenders soak in buttermilk for at least 30 minutes (the longer you soak, the better they will be). Remove chicken from buttermilk, dredge in the seasoned flour, place back into the buttermilk and dredge back into the flour one more time.
Fry the tenders in preheated oil at 350 degrees. I like to use a large cast iron skillet when frying. The tenders should take 5-7 minutes.
For the Waffles:
2 eggs, well beaten
1 cup (8 oz) milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1½ cups self rising flour
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup (4 oz) Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
8 pieces crumbled cooked bacon (I cooked mine in the mircrowave so it would crumble easily)
Preheat your waffle iron. Whisk the eggs, milk, and oil in a large bowl. Stir in your dry ingredients until smooth. Add the shredded cheese and crumbled bacon. Once your waffle iron is hot, pour in enough batter to fill. Cook according to your iron’s instructions.
