This homemade chicken and waffles is nothing like your average chicken and waffles. The chicken is tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. It’s well seasoned to its core and slightly sweet. I used a combination of waffle batter and beer for this crispy chicken. The waffles, on the other hand, are tender inside and crispy on the outside, just how I like my waffles.

Do you love fried chicken too? Find my recipe to this tender, yet crispy buttermilk chicken in the video below. Happy watching, but most importantly, happy eating because you are guaranteed to lick your mouth, screens and fingers too 😉
