Just when you thought chicken wings couldn't be made any better, along come chicken wings inside waffles!
Fried chicken and waffles are everywhere these days, and these waffle wings are the most compact way to eat the classic flavor pairing. I saw this delicious idea by Dude Food and had to give it a try.
When people first see these waffle-coated wings, they sort of do a double-take. It’s a real Frankenfood, stitched together with its seams showing.
After the double take though, they quickly start devouring the wings. They're really tasty and addicting, and it’s hard not to attack them!
I think the main keys to the recipe are making the chicken skin super crispy (so it stays crispy inside the waffle) and using a maple buffalo sauce to really bring the wing and waffle flavors together.
The first step is to make the waffle batter so it's ready to go when the chicken comes out of the fryer.
Crispy delicious wings. You probably should eat one of these just to make sure they're good!
Lightly coat the wings in the sauce, then dip in the batter. You want a very light coating of batter.
Then just finish on the waffle maker!
A quick dip in some ranch is the way to go on these. Cute, unique, fun, and delicious!
