  • 4chicken breastsboneless, skinless, cut into 2-inch wide strips
  • tsplemon pepper
  • tspkosher salt
  • 1tspAc’cent® seasoning
  • 1 ½cupsall purpose flour


Pear Butter:

  1. Add the pears, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and sugar to a medium saucepan and stir to coat the pears.

  2. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pears are tender, 35 to 40 minutes.

  3. Remove the pot from the heat. Using a potato masher, mash the pears until broken down to the consistency of a chunky applesauce. Set aside.


  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, oil, cream, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Mix in the beaten eggs.

  3. Ladle a scant ½ cup (55 G) of the waffle batter per waffle into the preheated waffle iron.

  4. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter. Keep the waffles warm in a low-heated oven until ready to use.

Whipped Cream:

  1. Add the heavy cream, cinnamon, and powdered sugar to a large bowl. Whip with an electric hand mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to use.


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, high-walled skillet over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

  2. In a large bowl, season the chicken with the lemon pepper, salt, and Ac’cent seasoning, tossing to coat well. Add the flour to a medium bowl. Dredge the chicken in the flour, shaking off any excess.

  3. Working in batches, gently lower the chicken into the hot oil and fry until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).

  4. Remove from the oil using tongs or a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to drain while you fry the remaining chicken.

  5. Cut the waffles into triangles and arrange 3 on each plate. Top with 2 tablespoons of pear butter, 3 fried chicken strips, and a dollop of whipped cream. Garnish with a sprig of mint.

  6. Enjoy!
