Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! There’s still time for brunch- so get up and make this recipe. Seriously. Your significant other will love you forever and ever. This recipe is so delicious and ups the entire breakfast game.
I had never been one to try chicken and waffles. I always thought it would be something I wouldn’t actually like. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of sweet and salty (thinking of you, chocolate covered pretzels) but chicken and waffles? I thought people were getting a liiiiiiiiiiiiittle crazy with that one. Turns out I’m the crazy one for not trying them for so long!!!!
I’m no expert with fried chicken or oven fried chicken. So, I used this basic recipe from allrecipes.com. Find it here!
As for the waffles though, I created the recipe on my own. You can find that below in the printable recipe card. If you don’t have a heart-shaped waffle maker, go get one. Just kidding (well, not really… a little bit kidding).
The sauce was made on a complete whim and only involves two ingredients! Talk about easy! I realized, after making the chicken and the waffles that I didn’t have any syrup. Who doesn’t check to see if they have syrup before making chicken and waffle sliders? This girl. And probably only this girl. This sauce was created with Agave Nectar… why agave nectar? I was a little too lazy to go upstairs and get the honey from my tea table in my room. (It was before 10 am, give me a break)… The mustard I used was the Hot & Sweet Mustard from Trader Joe’s. This mustard is my all time favorite. It isn’t spicy at all, but it isn’t super sweet. Step aside Dijon. Hot & Sweet is taking the stage. Simply combine 4 tbsp Agave Nectar with 2 tsp of the mustard. Seriously, that’s it. It’s so great too.
Below you’ll find the printable recipe card for my homemade waffle recipe. To make the sliders, slice your chicken into reasonable pieces (roughly 2-3 inches), bake/fry your chicken according to the recipe provided in the link above, make your waffles, put together your sliders and dipping sauce and enjoy!!!!
