Let's face it, breakfast in bed on Mother's Day is not all it's cracked up to be (all those pesky crumbs!). Wouldn't you rather spend a leisurely Sunday morning in the kitchen with some little helpers?

Oven-Fried Chicken and Buttermilk Oat Waffles with Spicy Maple Butter

Fried chicken and waffles are a savory-sweet soul-food specialty. Here, the chicken is marinated in buttermilk so it’s tender and juicy, then baked for easier cooking. It’s equally good warm or at room temperature.

Tips from the Test Kitchen

Step into our test kitchen for step-by-step help in putting together our Mother’s Day brunch menu.

On the Side

A bronzed and crackly coating of turbinado sugar adds a glamorous finish to grapefruit halves, which provide a welcome counterpoint to the richness of the main dish. And it’s just not brunch without coffee! Try our cold-steep method for a rich and refreshing brew.

Don't Forget Dessert

Sliced strawberries and crunchy granola make sweet toppings for silky-smooth panna cotta.

The Help

Depending on their ages and experience levels, kids can pitch in when you’re preparing these recipes. Let them help measure ingredients, crack eggs, make the cold-brewed coffees, mix the maple butter, whisk the ingredients for the waffle batter and the marinade, make the cornflake coating for the chicken, and sprinkle sugar on the grapefruit.
