This really is the best chicken and waffles recipe you will try! Oven baked chicken drumsticks are coated in buttermilk and cornflakes and served over homemade waffles. Perfectly succulent and crispy chicken every time!
Line a baking sheet with baking paper and place a cooling rack on top of it.
Spray the cooling rack with non-stick cooking spray
In a bowl, add the egg whites and buttermilk and whisk with a fork until frothy
In a separate bowl add the corn flakes
Dip the chicken in the egg white mixture then dip them in the cornflakes. Press firmly with your hands until the drumsticks are covered in corn flakes
Arrange the drumsticks on the cooling rack and bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown. If they begin to brown too much, carefully remove from the oven, cover with aluminum foil, then continue baking.
Preheat waffle iron
In a bowl add the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt
Mix well until combined
Add the milk, eggs, butter and vanilla extract and whisk the waffle batter until well combined
Add waffle batter in the waffle iron and cook until waffle is golden brown and crispy
Serve immediately while still warm, add the chicken drumsticks on top, drizzle some honey, and enjoy!
