When it comes to southern food, one dish that comes to mind is Chicken & Waffles. This dish may seem like an odd combination, but if you appreciate both sweet and salty flavors, then you should definitely give this a try! For my Chick Flick event where we watched the southern film, Steel Magnolias, this was a great addition to my southern inspired menu. Confession... It's not quite a real recipe but more like a Sandra Lee-esque concoction - lol!
Frozen or homemade waffles
Prepared or homemade chicken nuggets
Real maple syrup for dipping
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Cut waffles into quarters and place on one side of a baking sheet.
On the other side of the baking sheet, place your chicken nuggets.
Place baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 5-10 minutes or until both chicken nuggets and waffles are crisp.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and place a chicken nugget on top of each piece of waffle.
Secure with toothpicks and serve with real maple syrup for dipping.
