Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Marinate or brine the Bone-in, Skin-on Chicken Thigh (1 pound) in Salt (to taste), Ground Black Pepper (to taste), and Milk (1 cup) for at least 1 hour, but preferably overnight.
Step 2
Preheat air fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 3
Mix the All-Purpose Flour (1/2 cup), Garlic Powder (1 teaspoon), Paprika (1 teaspoon), Chili Powder (1 teaspoon), Dried Thyme (2 teaspoon), and Cayenne Pepper (1/2 teaspoon) in a medium-sized bowl, then dip the chicken in the flour mixture, one piece at a time, making sure it is coated on all sides.
Step 4
Place the chicken in the air fryer basket and cook for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through. The final cooking time will depend on your individual air fryer, check to ensure it isn't burnt and internal temperature is 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
Step 5
Add All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cup), Baking Powder (3 teaspoon), Ground Cinnamon (1 teaspoon), Egg (2), Maple Syrup (2 tablespoon), and Milk (1 cup) to a large bowl and whisk until combined and the batter is smooth.
Step 6
Preheat waffle maker and once ready, spray with Nonstick Cooking Spray (as needed). Add about ¼-1/3 cup of waffle mix to the waffle maker and cook until slightly browned on both sides. Continue until all of the batter has been used.
Step 7
Add Butter (2 tablespoon), Maple Syrup (1/2 cup), Cayenne Pepper (1/2 teaspoon), and Chili Powder (1/2 teaspoon) to a small saucepan and heat on medium-low until butter is melted, stirring to combine. Turn off heat.
Step 8
Serve 1-2 waffles with 1-2 pieces of chicken and pour maple butter sauce on top. Enjoy!
