Savory Chicken and Waffle Sliders
Ingredients
  • Waffles:
  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 8 Tb butter, melted
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • ½ cup of pickled jalapenos, diced
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary, destemmed
  • 12-18 pieces of fresh or frozen fried or breaded chicken
  • 8 slices of bacon, crispy
  • 1 cup of blue cheese crumbles
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup
Instructions
  1. If you're using fresh fried chicken, start by making that and then keep it warm in the oven as you make your waffles.
  2. to make the waffles, first, dice your onions, red peppers, and jalapenos.
  3. Then mix your waffle ingredients together in a large bowl.
  4. Next, if you're using frozen chicken, heat it in the oven.
  5. As your waffle maker heats up, cook your bacon (I use the microwave because I wanted flat, crispy bacon).
  6. Then cook your waffles, following the waffle maker manufacturer's instructions.
  7. Slice your waffle into quarters, add a spoonful of blue cheese to the bottom waffle, top it with 1-2 pieces of chicken, followed by 1-2 pieces of bacon, then finish the waffle top. Use a toothpick to secure if needed.
  8. Top the waffle slider with another spoonful of blue cheese, some maple syrup, and a sprig of rosemary if you want to be fancy.
  9. Enjoy!
