1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
8 ounces sourdough starter (Sourdough Starter Recipe is in this blog Bread Section)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Whole Chicken, (3 pounds or less)
1 cup self-rising flour
2 Eggs beaten
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
Vegetable oil for frying
For the Waffles
In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk until well combined.
In separate medium bowl, whisk eggs and milk until combined. Add sourdough starter and whisk until completely blended. Add flour mixture and butter and stir until combined. Depending on thickness of starter, you might need to adjust batter. It should be the consistency of pancake batter. Add flour or milk as needed to reach that consistency.
Cook in waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.
For the Chicken
Cut chicken into eight pieces. Rinse pieces in cold water and let them soak in fresh cold milk and egg for at least 30 minutes. Mix thoroughly flour, seasoned salt, pepper and garlic powder to make the fried chicken flour.
Heat 1 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat (375 in an electric skillet).
Dredge chicken through the breading, coating well on all surfaces. Pat off excess breading and place chicken in hot oil, making sure pieces are not touching each other. When the chicken is browned (approximately 5 minutes), turn pieces over and reduce heat to medium (300). Cover and cook for 20 minutes. Then remove lid, bring heat back to medium high and turn chicken, cooking an additional 5-7 minutes. Let chicken drain on a paper towel before eating.
Serve the chicken with the waffles along with butter and warm maple syrup.
