In a bowl, combine the buttermilk, egg, and Srirarcha. In a second bowl, add the gluten free flour and seasonings. Lastly, in a third bowl, add your gluten free bread crumbs.
Cut the chicken breasts into strips lengthwise. Dip in the gluten free flour mixture.
Next, dip the flour-coated chicken into the egg mixture and then into the bread crumbs. Preheat your air fryer to 370º F.
Spray the air fryer basket with oil and place the chicken into the basket. Spray the top of the chicken with oil.
Set the chicken to cook for 15 minutes at 370º F. At the 7 minute mark, open the air fryer and very gently flip the chicken to cook the other side for an additional 8 minutes. (Actual cooking time will vary depending on the size of your chicken pieces.)
While the chicken is cooking, let's make the gluten free buttermilk waffles. Preheat your waffle iron. Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
Add the wet ingredients to a bowl and whisk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk to remove all lumps.
Allow the batter to sit for 5 minutes. Use a ladle to scoop batter into the hot waffle maker. Cook for 4-5 minutes (cook time varies a bit by what brand waffle maker you use.)
Remove the waffle from the waffle iron and stack fried chicken on top. Drizzle with maple syrup. Many like to use spicy maple syrup to top their chicken and waffles. See note for a spicy syrup recipe.
