Chicken and Waffles 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!
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 1/2 cups Panko crumbs
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Vegetable oil
- 16 frozen mini waffles, toasted
- maple syrup
Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, whisk together egg and buttermilk. Place Panko crumbs into a third shallow bowl.
Pound the thick end of the chicken breasts so that it is even thickness. Cut chicken into 1 1/2-inch pieces.
Coat chicken pieces in flour mixture, dip in egg mixture and coat with Panko crumbs.
Pour about 1 inch of oil into a deep-sided skillet. Heat to 360 degrees or until oil sizzles when you drop a pinch of flour in.
Fry about 5 pieces of chicken at a time for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place on a paper towel-lined plate.
Sandwich the chicken pieces between two waffles, securing with toothpicks and drizzle with maple syrup.
