Southern Fried Chicken:

  1. To make the marinade mix together crushed garlic, pepper, Gregg’s Ground Chipotle, Heinz Tomato Ketchup and buttermilk. Cut chicken thigh fillets into 2-3 pieces. Toss to coat in the marinade. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for an hour or overnight.
  2. Mix together panko crumbs, flour, Gregg’s Ground Chipotle and thyme.
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and coat in the panko crumb mix. Place on a tray and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  4. Pour enough vegetable oil into a frying pan to a depth of 1.5cm. Heat oil. Shallow fry chicken pieces over medium heat, turning once until golden and cooked. Juices should run clear when the chicken is pierced with a fork (internal temperature should be 74°C).


  1. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir in sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together eggs, milk and oil. Pour wet ingredients into the dry. Mix to form a smooth batter. Allow to stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat the waffle maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Pour in the waffle mixture – depending on the size of the waffle plate ½ cup of the mixture will make a square waffle. Cook according to the instructions of your waffle maker.

To serve: serve waffles with the Southern Fried Chicken and drizzled with maple syrup.

Top Tip

Waffles are freezer friendly. Wrap cooked waffles in clingfilm or place in a sealable plastic bag. Freeze for up to 2 months. To reheat. Wrap waffles in foil and heat in a preheated 150°C oven for 5-10 minutes or until heated through. They can be reheated in the microwave but the result will be a much softer texture than heating in the oven.
