None of us had ever had this dish but we were intrigued. Majorly intrigued.
We all got together again that Sunday for football (guys = happy) and appetizers (girls = happy). I figured this was the perfect time to surprise everyone with chicken and waffles!
I used Mint Love Social Club's idea of the mini Eggo waffles as the base.
For the chicken, my first thought was YES! Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets! and that was followed immediately by a NO! it's Sunday and it's clooooooosed goshdarnit.
I went to plan B, which was pre-made chicken tenders from the grocery store deli. I was making a few apps and that was just the perfect shortcut I needed. I cut the tenders in bite-sized pieces and put them and the mini-waffles in the oven to heat up. Then I just stacked them. Easy!
For the sauce, I found this idea from Southern Living and knew it sounded perfect:
Peach-Horseradish Maple Syrup
1 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup peach preserves
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
Stir together maple syrup, peach preserves, horseradish, pepper, and salt in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 30 seconds or until warm.
They got a drizzle of this goodness along with a sprinkling of chopped green onions and they were ready to serve!
These were a H-I-T hit. The next time I host Supper Club, I most certainly will be spoiling the gals with these!
