John's fried chicken, but make it a sandwich!

Whether it's National Fried Chicken Day or not, we never need an excuse to eat fried chicken. One of the best ways to eat it, of course, is a fried chicken sandwich, with a close second being chicken and waffles, the diner classic. But then we thought, why choose? We're combining two of the most popular fried chicken dishes ever into one delicious brunch sandwich. It starts with John's LEGENDary fried chicken recipe and some boneless chicken thighs. First, brine the chicken thighs for a few hours (ideally overnight) with a mix of dry spices. Then, bread the chicken in seasoned flour and fry it up in Pepper's Wok (or any heavy-bottomed pot). Then, it's waffle time! Use our best-selling Buttermilk Mochi Pancake & Waffle Mix (inspired by John also!) to make two large waffles that will act as the sandwich "bread." A tangy pickle mayo ties the whole thing together. It's sweet, fatty, spicy, and savory all in one bite. You're gonna looove it.
