Chicken & Waffles with Home Made Waffles!

LIGHT FLUFFY WAFFLES, but these are NOT for breakfast, these are for SUPPER! We eat a dish called Chicken & Waffles which is Chicken Gravy swimming with chunks of chicken, onion, celery & parsley. Ladle over crispy hot waffles & you are eating like a Lancaster County Pa Dutchman!
Waffles: Or cheat & use frozen premade waffles but they will NOT be as wonderful!
2 & 1/4 Cups Flour
4 TSP Baking Powder
3/4 TSP Salt
1 TSP Sugar ( if using these for breakfast use 1 & 1/2 TBS Sugar)
Stir all the dry ingredients together.
Mix all together the following:
2 Beaten Eggs
2 & 1/4 Cups Milk
1/2 Cup Veg. Oil
( add 1 TSP Vanilla IF using these for breakfast)
Add the blended wet ingredients to the dry all at once & beat until blended. Spray waffle griddle with cooking spray & ladle enough batter to slightly  fill the wells about 2/3 to 3/4 full. Close the lid & cook until crispy brown & puffy. Serve hot  with lots of the chicken & gravy over the top! BEYOND DELICIOUS! 

This is CHICKEN & WAFFLES PA Dutch Amish Style & a LOCAL FAVORITE! You can not imagine  how delicious waffles taste with hot gravy swimming with chicken pour over them can taste. WONDERFUL GOOD!
1 Chicken Oven Stuffer Roaster works the best.
Enough water to cover the chicken placed in a large pot
Salt to taste
Simmer chicken in salted water until cooked .
Remove chicken from water & pull meat from the bones leaving it in nice large pieces. Back in the pot of water add the following
2 Large Onions chopped
2 Ribs Celery Chopped ( optional) But a must for me!
1 TBS Parsley
1 TSP Ground Sage
1 TSP Onion Powder
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
Pepper To Taste
Simmer all in the chicken broth in  the pot you cooked the chicken. Simmer until vegetables are cooked & are tender about 20 minutes. Thicken broth with vegetables & seasonings using about 1/4 Cup Cornstarch stirred into 1 Cup Water. Add to simmering broth stirring well. IF you want thicker gravy add more cornstarch mixed in water until you get the consistency you wish. I like a thick but not to thick! Now stir the chicken into the gravy ! Check for seasonings & add more if needed! Ladle over hot & crispy waffles served with side dishes & you have a meal fit for a Dutchman !
TO MAKE THIS MEAL EASIER, I cook my waffles ahead a day or 2 & freeze them! Allow your oven to heat to 350 degrees the day you make the dinner & pop your frozen waffles right on the oven racks. Cook about 10 minutes & TAH DAH you have hot crispy FRESH waffles!   I also make my mashed potatoes earlier in the day & keep them on warm in my crock-pot! We ALWAYS serve the Chicken & Waffles with Mashed Potatoes, vegetables, pickled beets & or coleslaw & applesauce. Make a DUTCHY dessert & you are eating Lancaster County Style!
