Classic Fried Chicken and Buttermilk Waffles

Start by preheating your deep fryer or cast-iron skillet with vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).

In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix these dry ingredients thoroughly.

Dip each chicken breast into the buttermilk and then coat them evenly with the seasoned flour mixture. Make sure to press the flour onto the chicken to create a crispy crust.

Carefully place the coated chicken breasts into the hot oil, ensuring not to overcrowd the frying vessel. Fry for about 8-10 minutes until they are golden brown and cooked through.
