In another bowl, crack eggs and whisk together. Pour eggs into the crater of the flour mixture; add in butter and buttermilk. Mix until combined and has reached a pouring consistency. Fold in cheddar cheese and green onions. Apply a light coat of cooking spray on the waffle iron. Pour about ½ cup waffle batter into each waffle cavity. Cook until golden brown. Place the cooked waffle on a wire rack over a cookie sheet and place in the oven at 200 degrees F. to keep warm. Continue the process until 8 waffles have been made.
Cut each chicken breast in half making 6 pieces. In a large bowl, combine chicken, buttermilk and Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce. Toss until chicken is evenly covered with buttermilk. With chicken submerged in buttermilk, cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Place Slap Ya Mama Cajun Fish Fry in a shallow bowl. Dip a piece of chicken in the fish fry, being sure to coat well, dip back in the buttermilk and once more in the fish fry. Place the double dipped chicken breast on a wire rack placed on a cookie sheet and let rest for about 10 minutes while the batter dries on the chicken. Repeat the process until all chicken is battered. In a heavy bottomed pan, heat about 2 inches of peanut oil to 335 degrees F. Once oil is hot, fry chicken in batches, about 2 or 3 pieces at a time. Cook for about 5 minutes on the first side or until golden brown and crispy. Flip over and cook for another 4 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. (This cook time will vary depending on the thickness of your chicken breast. Using a meat thermometer, the center of each chicken breast should register 165 degrees F to be considered fully cooked.) Place cooked chicken on a separate wire rack over a cookie sheet and place in a 200 degrees F oven to keep warm. Continue the process until all chicken is cooked.

Looking to experience some of Louisiana’s finest dishes? Try Slap Ya Mama’s Chicken & Sausage Gumbo recipe. Delivering unparalleled Louisiana Cajun flavor from our home in Ville Platte, LA. After trying our recipe, you’ll love it so much you’ll want to come on down to visit us at our home.
Gumbo is one of those authentic dishes whose roots are deeply ingrained in Louisiana’s culture and people. There are many variations of gumbo all over Louisiana and each variation is authentic and delicious in its own right. With Ville Platte being located in south-central Louisiana, we didn’t have consistent access to seafood or many other ingredients you might find in other gumbos. We instead made a gumbo with the ingredients that are most abundant in our area, such as chicken and pork. For that reason we traditionally prepare a Chicken & Sausage Gumbo with a dark roux. During the cold winter months a very large pot of gumbo was often made and we would eat on it for a couple of days. We had no complaints of eating leftovers when it came to gumbo because it actually gets better with time.
This winter, try preparing a chicken & sausage gumbo. Make a large pot of it so you can eat on it for days and keep the smiles coming from all that get to enjoy it.
In a 10-12 quart pot over high heat, fill ½ way with water and bring to a boil. Add ¾ jar of roux, boil until roux is completely dissolved, stirring occasionally. Reduce to medium heat; add sausage, onions, bell peppers, garlic and 2 tbsp of Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning. Boil for 15 minutes. With the remaining ½ tbsp. of Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning, season chicken and add to pot. Add water to pot until it is almost full. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 hour. With 10 minutes remaining of the hour boil, add parsley and green onions. Reduce low heat. Serve over rice, add a few dashes of Slap Ya Mama Pepper Sauce and enjoy!

Chicken Sauce Piquante is a traditional cajun recipe that has been around for generations. With a reddish spicy gravy, it has an incredible flavor and fairly simple to prepare. Served over rice, this dish was and still is a staple in many households in and around the Acadiana area. There are many methods and recipes for this particular dish but in our family, this is how we were taught to prepare a sauce piquante.
Generously season chicken with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend and a few splashes of Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce. On medium-high heat, pour about 2 tbsp of olive oil in a 4-quart pot. Once hot, brown pieces of chicken on all sides and place aside until all chicken is browned. Don’t be afraid to burn the chicken a little or for it to stick to the bottom of the pot. This is where the gravy will come from. Add onions, bell peppers, garlic and just enough water to cover the bottom of the pot. Sauté until vegetables are soft. Add tomato sauce; continue to sauté for10 minutes. Add mushrooms, beef broth, whipping cream and 1 tbsp Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning. Sauté for 5 minutes. Lower heat to medium, add chicken and fill pot with water just to the top of the chicken. Cover and let boil for an hour or until chicken is tender, stirring occasionally. Lower heat; stir in green onions and parsley. Let simmer for 10 minutes. Server over rice and enjoy!
Note: You may add smoked sausage to this dish. If doing so, you would treat it just as you do the chicken.
