Chicken and Waffles
Sports, they’re great am I right? Balls, and grass, and catching things, boy oh boy great! Super Bowl is around the corner and it’s time to get your snack line up in order! Like any sports event, I’m in for the food. Oh, you too? Well, look no further. I have just the right snack for you. What’s better than chicken and waffles while watching sports? Go team!
2 Chicken Cutlets
1 c. Self Rising Flour
1/2 tsp. Pepper
A few dashes of Tabasco
1/8 c. Honey
1/8 c. Maple Syrup
2 c. All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 c. Milk (I used Almond Milk)
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 c. Sugar
1/4 tsp. Salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the chicken into two inch strips. In a small bowl, beat 1 large egg and mix in a few dashes of Tabasco sauce. On a flat dish, pour the self rising flour. Begin by coating the chicken in egg and then with flour. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
While the chicken is cooking, mix together the honey and maple syrup. Once the chicken is done baking, brush on the honey and syrup mixture and bake for another 5 minutes.
Next, it’s waffle time! The best part of any day. Whisk together all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt). In a separate bowl mix together the milk, egg, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and thoroughly stir together.
Pour the batter onto a hot waffle iron and cook the batter just until it sets. The waffles will look pale in comparison to a regular waffle but still sturdy. Using one waffle, push it into the tin until it forms a cup. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 – 20 minutes, or until the tops of the waffles begin to turn brown.
Allow the waffle up to cool slightly before serving. Place 2 or 3 pieces of chicken in each waffle bowl and drizzle with maple syrup and sprinkle with bits of bacon. Don’t forget to spice it up with a little more Tabasco sauce!
