Spicy Buttermilk and Beer Fried Chicken and Cinnamon Roll Waffles Drizzled with IPA Cajun Gravy
I’ve had this recipe on my desktop for WEEKS! Every time I look at the pictures, I think: “These pictures are weak.”, “Man, I want Fried Chicken and Waffles”, or “I should probably retest this recipe… You know, to make sure it’s 100%!”.
I’ve seen Cinnamon Roll Waffles all over Pinterest over the years. Last year, I bought Huck a Waffle Iron, so we could make Carrot Cake Waffles like Coolinary. We haven’t made them once by the way! So, we have this waffle iron taking up precious space in our super small kitchen, and I’ve only used it twice! One time was for my Gingerbread Waffle and the other was for Double Chocolate Chip and Stout Waffles that I’ve never posted… Coming soon!
When I was putting the leftover fried chicken in the refrigerator, I seen an unopened pack of cinnamon rolls in the door. I instantly knew what we were having for breakfast. If I wasn’t so miserable full, that night, we would have had it for dessert!
When making the waffles, I sprayed my waffle iron with cooking spray just to make sure the sugar didn’t stick or burn to the iron. I added the prepared cinnamon roll in the middle, closed the lid, and cooked for 4-6 minutes. Some seemed to cook faster than others. That could also be due to the fact that I have a really cheap waffle iron. I just crack open the lid and checked on them every few minutes.
I placed the chicken in the oven, to warm, while I was making the waffles. I didn’t want to use the microwave and make that yummy, crispy, outside mushy! I placed the chicken on a rack, on the lowest shelf of the oven so it wouldn’t brown too much. Now, I know what you’re thinking. This can’t possible get any better. Well, you’re wrong! Once my waffles were plated and topped with real maple syrup and the spicy fried chicken, I drizzled the whole thing with leftover IPA Cajun Gravy! This is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.
Since it was so early, we had to take everything outside to take photos. Huck was standing over me like a hawk waiting for the okay to dig in. He’s a lucky lucky man! He gets meals like this for breakfast!
Truth be told, I’m really the lucky one! I’m married to an amazing man! I hope you guys enjoy this delicious breakfast!
