  • Flour
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • Baking soda
  • Pepper
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 T vegetable oil
  • 1 small egg
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup + 1 T cup whole milk
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ⅛ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoons chipotle chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground white pepper

  2. Melt butter in saucepan on stove. Add onions and garlic. Once onions appear transparent, add the rest of your ingredients and stir. Simmer or set to low boil and allow sauce to sit, stirring occasionally, until it thickens into just a touch thinner than a barbecue sauce consistency.
  3. While your Dr. Pepper barbecue sauce cooks, you can begin your chicken waffle wings. Pat chicken wings dry with a paper towel. Drudge (coat) wings in flour mixture. Flour mixture should be fairly salty and flavorful as the waffle batter does not offer the savory kick needed.
  4. Combine waffle coating ingredients and set to the side.
  5. Fry wings coated in the flour mixture (not waffle batter yet!). Heat vegetable oil to 350 degrees and place wings in oil. Once skin is crispy, remove and drain on paper towels.
  6. Heat waffle iron to highest setting. Place wings in waffle coating and cover completely. Drip off excess, then place on waffle iron that has been sprayed with vegetable oil. Press iron down and allow to cook.
  7. If sides of waffle batter on wings to not cook, place in hot oil again and fry for a few seconds to make chicken waffle wings crispier. Drain and serve.
  8. When barbecue sauce has boiled down, remove from heat and allow to cool before serving.
