It doesn’t get any easier than this! If you are short on time but want to be able to serve a savoury appetizer, these chicken and waffle sliders are the way to go. They would also be nice to serve at a brunch.
To make this easy recipe, you only need 3 ingredients: chicken nuggets, frozen mini waffles and maple syrup.
- 12 chicken nuggets
- 24 mini waffles
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
Cook your chicken nuggets according to the package directions.
When they are done cooking and are cooling off, toast your mini waffles in a toaster or toaster oven.
Create “sandwiches” of the chicken and waffles, placing a toasted mini waffle on the bottom, setting a cooked chicken nugget atop it and finishing with a toasted mini waffle on top. This step is a great one to help your kids help you with. You may want to use toothpicks to hold the sliders together.
Serve with maple syrup for a salty-and-sweet flavour combination.
One of the nice things about this recipe is that you can keep some mini waffles and chicken nuggets in your freezer at all times and some maple syrup in your pantry. That way, you’ll know that you can throw this together on the spur of the moment anytime. You can also substitute the maple syrup for one of your preference.
To vary this chicken and waffle slider recipe, you can try some of these combinations:
- add a dollop of hot sauce on top of the chicken nuggets
- sprinkle cajun seasoning on top of the chicken nuggets before cooking them
- add cooked bacon in between the chicken and top waffle
- in the last minute or so of cooking the chicken nuggets, add a slice of cheddar cheese on top of each
