Mama’s Chicken n Waffles

I love chicken and waffles. Slap Ya Mama Cajun Red Beans Rice brings it to an all-new level. Truth be told, the waffles are delicious all an their own. You can make the waffles several days in advance and freeze them.

Mama’s Chicken 'n Waffles
by Tracy

serves 6-8

Red Beans and Rice Waffles:
1 box Slap Ya Mama Cajun Red Beans & Rice, cooked according to package directions and cooled to room temperature
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 egg yolks, beaten
1 1/4 cups whole milk
5 Tablespoons shortening, melted and cooled
3 egg whites, beat until stiff peaks form

Preheat oven to 225°F.

Preheat waffle iron and spray with nonstick cooking spray. In a bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir together the egg yolks, milk and melted shortening . Add the mixture to the sifted dry ingredients. Beat until just smooth. Stir in the cooled red beans and rice. Gently fold in the stiff egg whites. Pour 1/3 cup of mixture per waffle into the waffle iron and cook according to iron directions. Remove from iron and place on a baking sheet and repeat until all waffles are done. Place baking sheet into oven to keep waffles warm.

Chicken Tenders:
2 pounds chicken tenderloins
1 cup buttermilk
3 eggs
1 Tablespoon Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce
1 cup Slap Ya Mama Cajun Fish Fry
Vegetable oil for frying

In a shallow bowl, place tenderloins in buttermilk and set aside. Beat eggs and stir in pepper sauce in a small bowl. In another small bowl place Slap Ya Mama Fish Fry. One at a time, dip each tenderloin in the egg mixture then the fish fry, coating completely. Fill a frying pan with vegetable oil until it reaches about 1/4 inch in the pan. Heat oil to 350°F. When oil is hot, place 3 or 4 tenderloins in the pan and fry for about 3 minutes on each side. Remove and place on paper towels to drain. Place on a baking sheet in the oven to keep warm while frying the rest and making the gravy.

Gravy:
1 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
2 1/2 cups milk
2 Teaspoons white pepper
1 teaspoon salt

In a medium saucepan, heat butter and flour stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Add the milk and whisk until heated through and begins to thicken. Add white pepper and salt.

To assemble, place two waffles on a plate and top with two tenderloins. Pour 1/3 cup of gravy over the top. Garnish with a lemon wedge, parsley, Slap Ya Mama Hot Blend Cajun Seasoning, Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce and chopped parsley. Serve warm.
