Waffle Mix:
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1-½ cups water

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl combine eggs, oil and 1 cup of water. Whisk in dry ingredients while slowly adding the remaining water until the proper ‘loose batter’ consistency is reached. Allow to sit for 15-20 minutes before using.


Lucky J’s Spice:
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons Kosher salt
2 tablespoons Spanish paprika
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon rosemary
1 tablespoon sage
1 tablespoon white pepper
1 tablespoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients thoroughly until the flour is evenly colored.


Fried Chicken :
2 cups fry flour
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons pepper
2 cups Lucky J’s spice
2 cups buttermilk
1 chicken cut into 3 pieces

Dredge chicken in fry flour, shaking off excess flour. Dip into buttermilk wash until coated thoroughly. Dredge in spiced flour until well coated, shaking off excess flour. Fry for 15-20 minutes at 300 degrees or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. If a fryer is not available, you may pan fry the chicken in 2” of canola oil.

Assemble fried chicken on the waffle. Serve.
