Pancake Battered Chicken

It’s a crazy, addictive thing, this pancake battering.

Since making Pancake Battered Jalapeno Poppers, I’ve been hooked on rolling things around in pancake batter. It’s hard to go wrong when it coats so well, has a slightly sweetness to it, and fries so beautifully golden brown.

This chicken was actually one of my favorite random out-of-nowhere ideas.

Y’all know how much I like fun food.

I made two dipping sauces, one with hoisin sauce, sesame oil and Worcestershire, and one with spicy mustard and honey.

By the way, have you ever smelled sesame oil? Oh my word…

It smells like heaven.

This is like the epitome of brunch heaven.

Just add a couple of strong Bloody Mary’s and you’ll be set.

This batter is not only easy to make, it fries in a damn flash. No waiting here. You literally throw the pancake mix in a bowl with water and roll your chicken around in it, then fry. I used Krusteaz Protein Buttermilk Pancake mix. It’s by far the fluffiest pancake mix I think I’ve ever used.
