Baked Fried Chicken & Waffles Recipe

A slightly healthier version of chicken and waffles. Instead of fried chicken, use the baked version. It’s better for you and just as crispy!

How To Make Baked Fried Chicken & Waffles

  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • cooking spray
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 5 oz buttermilk
  • ¾ cup cornflakes (crushed finely)
  • 1 lbs chicken leg quarters
  • 2 cups prepared pancake batter
  1. Start by preheating your oven to 365 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Next, coat your baking dish with oil or cooking spray.

  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, and cayenne pepper together.

  4. Place the buttermilk and corn flakes crumbs in two separate shallow bowls.

  5. Roll the chicken in flour mixture. Make sure to evenly coat each side.

  6. Afterward, dip the chicken and corn flakes crumbs into the buttermilk.

  7. Place the coated chicken breasts inside the baking dish.

  8. Now spray the chicken with non-stick cooking spray. Otherwise, lightly drench it in oil.

  9. Bake the chicken for about about 25 to 30 minutes. Make sure not to flip the chicken until it is tender and no longer pink.

  10. When the chicken is almost ready, start making the waffles by mixing the pancake batter in a bowl. Afterward, pour the batter into your waffle maker.

  11. Once finished, serve your cooked waffles with butter and syrup alongside your baked fried chicken. Enjoy!
