For the Chicken and Waffles:

  • 6 thin chicken breasts or 6 large chicken tenders
  • 2 cups of buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon of prepared horseradish
  • 3 finely grated cloves of garlic
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of finely grated fresh horseradish
  • 1 batch of prepared Bob’s Red Mill 7-Grain Pancake Waffle Mix batter
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 2 cups of canola oil

For the Butter:

  • 4 ounces of softened unsalted butter
  • ½ cup of grade A maple syrup


  • Butter: Whisk together the butter and maple syrup until completely combined and place in the refrigerator.
  • Chicken: Place the chicken, buttermilk, prepared horseradish and garlic into a plastic bag and mix. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or over night.
  • In a large bowl mix together the flour, thyme leaves, fresh horseradish salt and pepper until combined. Once the chicken is done marinating, remove them from the buttermilk and bread them with the seasoned flour and set on a plate.
  • Add the oil to a large cast iron skill and place on a burner on medium heat.
  • Place the chicken into the iron skillet once the oil is hot and fry the chicken on both sides until it is golden brown and cooked through out, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the oil once cooked and let drain on paper towels.
  • Waffles: Spray your waffle maker with PAM spray and cook a few batches of the prepared Bob’s Red Mill batter.
  • Serve: Place the fried chicken on top of the cooked waffles and top off with the maple butter.
