Of course chicken and waffles are iconic but why not just put the chicken in the waffle!? It might sound crazy but trust me it’s crazy good!
I never usually have leftover fried chicken but today I did and I also was making waffles! Simply chop up your tasty, crispy chicken and toss it in the waffle batter and in 4 minutes you got a game changing breakfast. Sticky maple syrup and spicy hot sauce fully recommended!
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/8 cups buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 8 ounces leftover fried chicken meat with skin, coarsely chopped
- Cooking spray
- 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, sliced into pats
- Beat egg in a large bowl. Whisk in buttermilk and melted butter until smooth. Whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture to buttermilk mixture; whisk just until smooth. Fold in chopped chicken.
- Heat a waffle iron on medium. Coat with cooking spray. Add 2/3 cup of the batter to each quadrant. Cook until browned and done, 4 to 5 minutes. Place 1 waffle on each of 4 plates. Top evenly with syrup and butter pats.
