For the chicken:

  • 2 lb. Chicken Wings, whole

  • 2 tsp. Creole Seasoning
  • 2 Large Organic Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Allspice Seasoning
  • 1 tsp. Paprika

  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Eggnog
  • Dash Red Cayenne Pepper


For the waffles:

  1. Pre-heat your waffle iron.
  2. Add flour, cornstarch, baking powder, lemon zest and whisk (paid link).
  3. In a separate bowl, separate the 2 egg yokes from the egg whites (set to the side for now) and add the yokes into the bowl with the eggnog, milk, sugar, salt, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.
  4. Whip the leftover egg whites until they begin to form stiff peaks (around 8 minutes).
  5. Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients (except for the egg whites) and stir until blended.
  6. Lightly fold whipped egg whites into better. Do not over blend.
  7. Add around 1 cup of batter into the waffle iron and cook per your type of waffle maker.

For the chicken wings:

  1. Season your wings with salt and black pepper.
  2. In a separate bowl, add 2 eggs and eggnog. Stir until smooth. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl and allow to marinate for 15 to 30 minutes minutes while you prepare the flour and seasoning bag.
  3. Heat your cast-iron to medium heat and add enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan completely.
  4. Grab a large zip lock bag and add flour and remaining seasonings then shake until mixed. Dredge chicken wings in the seasoned flour. Shake until each piece is coated well.
  5. Fry chicken pieces for 8 minutes on each side. REmove from oil and let cool (and drain) for a few minutes.
  6. Serve with waffles and warm syrup.


For the waffles, you can make your batter slightly thicker or thinner by increasing or decreasing the amount of milk.
