I’ve had several friends talk about places that serve chicken and waffles. I was going to try to make this at home, but I didn’t have eggs or flour for frying up the chicken. So…Improvise! Instead of fried chicken on top of a waffle, I decided to grill the chicken and put it IN the waffle – as part of the batter. I also had some garlic cloves so I minced some garlic and added that to my batter.
The end result was full of delicious win. The taste of waffle, chicken, garlic and maple syrup was amazing. This is now my go to weekend breakfast.
Here is how I make “Chicken IN Waffles” – in pictures.
I like deep pocket waffles and sweet batter. This is my favorite mix.
Follow the instructions for the batter and set aside.
I like garlic so I chopped 3 cloves for my batch of batter that yielded 3 waffles.
I cut two chicken tenderloins along with the garlic and grilled till cooked.
Ready for the batter.
Let the chicken cool a bit before folding it into the batter.
Filling the waffle iron with the garlic chicken waffle batter.
Fill all the surfaces to get a full-rounded waffle.
Mmmm…waffle steam. My waffle iron takes 3 minutes to cook.
Heat and 3 minutes later and SCIENCE! Delicious waffle!
I prefer grade A Canadian maple syrup. It’s a bit more expensive but you’ll notice that the taste is worth it.
I prefer to dip my waffle into the maple syrup.
Now you are getting really hungry…am I right? W A F F L E. Tasty w a f f l e. Waffle.
Open the waffle up and witness the Chicken IN Waffle! Try it yourself and let me know how you like it.
