Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Make the dipping sauce: Whisk the maple syrup and hot sauce in a bowl.

Make the chicken fingers: Whisk the egg, buttermilk, mustard and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat.

Pulse the waffles in a food processor to make fine crumbs. Transfer the crumbs to a baking sheet.

Heat 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet or heavy-bottomed pot until hot but not smoking. Remove the chicken from the egg mixture, shaking off any excess, and coat with the waffle crumbs, pressing firmly to adhere. Fry the chicken in batches, adjusting the heat if necessary, until golden brown and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a rack set over a baking sheet to drain. Serve with the dipping sauce.
