throwback thursday.. spicy fried chicken and waffles..

it's throwback thursday and today i thought i would pull from the archives one of my favorites.. every year for my dad's b day i give him the choice of anything he wants i will make him for dinner.. and every year he picks southern fried chickenmashed potatoes, corn, buttermilk sour~cream pepper biscuits and my grandmommy's miracle whip cake with fudge frosting.. and this year will be no different i am sure.. his b day is coming up so i will see what surprises i can come up with.. last years surprise was waffles.. along with all of the above i made waffles to serve with the spicy fried chicken.. it was so good.. a once a year indulgence..

spicy fried chicken

for the fried chicken i used my recipe which i posted here.. it's the way i have been making it for years and i haven't changed any of it.. accept maybe adding an extra dash or two of cayenne in the flour.. but other than that nothing.. same recipe.. simple tried and true..


prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 3-5 minutes
servings: 8


 4 cups ap unbleached flour
3 tblsp. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 cups low fat buttermilk
1 cup melted butter
3 large eggs
in a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.. in a medium mixing bowl whisk together, butter, eggs and buttermilk.. add to flour mixture and mix until just incorporated.. don't over mix.. heat your waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.. i spray mine on the first waffle with pam but then don't spray again.. my waffle iron is about 20 years old so it's pretty well seasoned and non sticky ha ..pour batter onto iron. {this depends on the size of your waffle iron as to how much} cook until crisp and golden brown.. 3-5 minutes.. remove to a plate and serve immediately so they don't get soggy.. we slathered our waffles with honey butter, grabbed the chicken of our choice and then drizzled with spicy honey syrup.. {recipe for the butter and syrup below}it was quite delish.. if i do say so myself..

spicy honey syrup {i use the same "sauce" i use for my chicken wings and i love to dip my pizza in it}

1/4 cup of honey
2 tsp. {or more} of cayenne
in a small microwave safe bowl combine the 2 and zap in the microwave for about 20 seconds right before ready to serve so it's easily drizzlable {good golly is that a word..}

honey butter {we used this on our biscuits and our waffles}

4 tbslp. butter, room temperature
3 tblsp. orange blossom honey

whisk until well combined... {it's great on warm flour tortillas, toast and even pancakes}

enjoy and get cook'n!!
