For the chicken:

  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup eggnog
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp Creole seasoning
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground thyme
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

For the waffles:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 2 1/2 cups eggnog

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract


  1. For the chicken, season your wings with salt and black pepper. In a large bowl, add eggs and eggnog. Stir until smooth. Add the chicken to the bowl and allow it to marinate for 15 to 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a cast-iron skillet to medium heat and add enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan.
  3. Add flour, Creole seasoning, allspice, paprika, thyme, garlic powder, and red cayenne pepper to a large ziplock bag. Dredge chicken wings in the seasoned flour.
  4. Fry chicken pieces for 8 minutes on each side. Remove from oil, drain, and allow to cool.  
  5. For the waffles, preheat your waffle iron.
  6. Add flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and lemon zest to a bowl. Mix. Add egg yolks, eggnog, milk, sugar, salt, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Mix until smooth.
  7. Whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks (around 8 minutes). Set to the side.
  8. Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients (except for the egg whites) and stir until blended.
  9. Lightly fold whipped egg whites into the batter. Do not over-mix.
  10. Add around 1 cup of batter into the waffle iron and cook per your type of waffle maker.


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