  • 1 package (6 ounces) stuffing mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 2 pounds)
  • Oil for frying
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-3/4 cups 2% milk
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup


  1. Prepare stuffing mix according to package directions; cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, mix eggs and mustard. Place flour, salt and pepper in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken thighs in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip in egg mixture, then again in flour mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  3. In an electric skillet, heat 1/2 in. oil to 375°. Fry chicken thighs, a few at a time, until golden brown and a thermometer reads at least 170°, 2-3 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels and keep warm.

  5. Bake waffles according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown. Serve with chicken and syrup.
