Chicken ‘n Waffles

Has she lost her marbles? Chicken n Waffles?! Whaaaa?

Oh yeah….Chicken n Waffles.

It was 12 years ago when I first tried this odd yet yummy combination. I was so perplexed when I saw it printed on the cafeteria menu as the lunch entree of the day. Knowing and trusting the chef…I decided to give it a go.  The line was long…but it was worth it! The sweet and savory flavor reeled me in…it’s not the fanciest of dishes, but grownups and kids alike savor every bite. I even have it mastered the gluten-free way {although you can simply stick with your typical method of waffles if you don’t have to consider that}. Enjoy!{For lunch or dinner}

Slice chicken into strips, rinse and blot with paper towels.

In a large Ziploc add 3 cups of corn flakes, salt and pepper. {If you have a gluten intolerance use gluten-free corn flakes of your choice}.

Crush finely.

Beat eggs in a small dish and dip each chicken strip.

Place about 2-3 chicken strips in bag at a time and toss gently, coating each one with a cornflake crust.

Place each chicken strip on a foil lined pan. Bake in a 425 oven for 15 mins or until done.

Make waffles as you desire {I used GF Hodgson Mill in this photo, but I prefer GF Bisquick, hands down!}

Make on a waffle iron until steam seeps out the back and waffles are crisp and lightly browned. Make sure not to add too much batter to the iron {about 1/4 cup will do per waffle}.

Top with butter and warm syrup {My old work even went so far to put whipped cream and strawberries on top!} If you haven’t tried this…I dare ya! No, I double dog dare ya. 😉

  1. When I saw this I said “No way!” Why? Because I’ve wanted to make chicken and waffles for awhile but was afraid of bad recipes 🙂 I just printed this and will try it next week!!

  2. What an awesome idea! Sounds yummy!!! I love honey on my chicken strips – so syrup is probably pretty good too!!! My kids love waffles so I have this funny feeling anything I serve on top of a waffle they will eat!! Maybe I should try this with their peas lol!

  3. This sounds like a pretty yummy treat! Interesting combos always make the best meals.
