Main Ingredients

jalapeno cheddar corn meal waffles

1 1/4 cup of all purpose flour

3/4 cup of yellow cornmeal

1 tablespoon of sugar

4 teaspoons of baking powder

2 teaspoons of salt

2 large eggs

1 1/2 cups of buttermilk

1/4 cup of canola oil

1/3 cup of melted butter

2 cups of shredded shard cheddar cheese

2 jalapenos, de-seeded and diced

buttermilk fried chicken

4 chicken legs and back

2 cups of buttermilk

2 cups of all purpose flour

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of black pepper

1 teaspoon of garlic powder

2 teaspoons of baking powder

2 teaspoons of smoked paprika

1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

canola oil


1Jalapeno Cheddar Cornmeal Waffles

2Preheat your waffle iron to a medium-high setting.

3In a bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl whisk together all the wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry and fold in until moist.

4Fold in the jalapenos and shredded cheese.

5Add 1/2 cup of batter to the hot waffle iron at a time. Cook until golden brown and crispy. Repeat until the batter is all gone. If you wish to keep them warm while cooking the rest, then place in the oven at 200F, on a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.

6Buttermilk Fried Chicken

7In a 9 by 13 inch pan or Pyrex dish place the chicken in, then pour the buttermilk on top. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge. Let marinate for 2 hours, turning the chicken half way.

8In a large deep cast iron pan, heat 1 inch of canola oil to 350F.

9Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

10In a bowl whisk together the flour and spices. Remove the chicken from the fridge, dip the buttermilk soaked chicken into the flour and evenly coat with flour. Then dip it back into the buttermilk and then back into the flour. Gently lower the chicken by the bone end into the preheat oil. You can cook 2 pieces at a time without over loading the pot.

11Fry the chicken for 5 minutes on each side or until it is a deep golden brown and crispy. Once it is crispy and golden brown, turn over the chicken and fry the other side for another 5 minutes. Once the chicken has a nice crispy exterior, place in the preheated oven and bake until done in the center, which is 165F.
