Chicken and Waffle Sliders

Chicken and Waffle Sliders- the classic southern breakfast dish gets turned into a fun, bite-sized brunch dish that’s super easy to make. The combination of sweet and savory is irresistible!

Chicken and Waffles is the ultimate combination of sweet and savory.  You have the savory, salty fried chicken combined with crispy waffles and sweet, sticky maple syrup. It is one of my favorite foods.

Fun Twist On Traditional Favorite

In some ways I like these Chicken and Waffle Sliders even better than traditional Chicken and Waffles. The mini waffles form a crunchy, crispy bun for the fried chicken. Plus food always tastes better when you can eat it with your fingers.

How To Make Spicy

If you want to add a spicy kick to these brunch sliders, add 1/2 a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the flour mixture.

To make this recipe quick and easy, mini frozen EGGO waffles are used. Just toast them up and they are ready to go.

Recipe Tip

If you want to really simplify this recipe, use frozen chicken nuggets.  But the fried chicken for these Chicken and Waffle Sliders is super easy to make. Panko crumbs give the chicken a super crisp coating and since the chicken is cut in bite-sized pieces, it fries up super quick.

You’re going to love this twist on a southern favorite. You will want to eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For another take on this southern favorite, try this Chicken and Waffles with TABSACO Maple Syrup.

    Was looking for a Louisiana Crawfish cornbread dressing. Saw a few, but yours looked most inviting so I tried to print it. I’m into cooking food from home, not social media, so after trying several times I had to just give up. I’d rather buy the recipe from you than go online or add extensions to my google chrome. I already signed up for notifications, but that wasn’t enough. Is it more about food — or fame? I am so disappointed! Can’t rate what I can’t cook or taste!
