Cannabis Chicken and Waffles
In our gluten-free, low fat, low-sugar world sometimes it’s fun to create a snack that broadcasts to the world, “Fuck It – I am going to make something so freaking delicious, fattening and potentially bad for me that I will be forced to update my living will and wear a medi-alert bracelet.”
Cannabis chicken and waffles – bite sized and with honey butter is that snack. So hitch up yer daisy Dukes, put down yer banjo, strap on yer apron and get ready to holler “Dinner y’all” while perpetrating any number of Southern stereotypes with these insanely tasty morsels.
Bite Sized Cannabis Chicken and Waffles
*cannabis is not a main player in this recipe but instead resides in the honey butter that gets drizzled on top. This allows you to control dosage AND eat about 25 of these puppies without having to take the rest of the week off. You’re welcome.
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup whole milk
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 TBL smoked or Hungarian paprika
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soft MendoLicious butter
2 cups vegetable oil for frying
Paprika for dusting
Place raw chicken strips into glass or ceramic bowl and cover with milk and buttermilk, cover bowl with plastic wrap and let soak for 1-2 hours (the longer the better. You could even leave it overnight in the fridge and that would be dandy.)
Whisk dry ingredients and place in large shallow dish.
Place several “squares” of the frozen mini waffles in toaster oven or regular oven on low temp (approx. 250).
Pour oil into frying pan and heat until shimmering.
Whisk honey and butter together in small bowl.
Now you have everything ready to fry!
Take a chicken strip from the milk mixture and dredge in flour and tap off excess – slide into heated oil.
Repeat until pan is full but not crowded and turn strips until golden brown and fully cooked. Place on paper towels to drain.
Set heated waffles onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and break them into individual pieces. * (If you are a fan of making your own waffles and have the appropriate pan feel free to make them yourself and just cut down into small pieces.) Slice cooked tenders into bite size chunks and place on top of waffle bites. Drizzle with cannabis honey butter. Dust with paprika. Ring the dinner bell and holler for Bo and Luke – grubs on! Cannabis Chicken and Waffles are served!
