Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium enameled cast-iron casserole, heat 3 inches of canola oil to 375°. Set a rack over a baking sheet.

  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the mustard powder, garlic, paprika and sparkling water.

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Dip the chicken in the batter and let the excess drip off. Fry, turning, until golden and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the chicken to the prepared rack to drain briefly.

  • Arrange eight of the waffles on a plate. Spread some mayo on the waffles and layer the lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles and fried chicken on top. Close the sandwiches and serve.
