Chicken N' Waffles Bites

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!

Chicken N' Waffles Bites
original Joelen recipe

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.
