OOO-wee, honey! Chicken and waffles never tasted so good — together! Dripping with honey and love, you gotta give 'em a try.
So, here's the thing. Are you ready for the behind-the-scenes dirt from the Tablespoon table? Here goes…when the editors suggested this recipe for May's lineup, I cringed my nose. I was, like, all you want me to bake a chicken nugget in waffle batter? Like, whaat?
They, being the gentle and eternally fierce foodies they are, insisted it could be a thing. So, I resigned myself to their whims, and figured I'd try it. At least I could tell them I tried when I returned later to admit defeat.
I gathered the ingredients and got all ready-like in the kitchen. A plop of butter and honey seemed just about right, so plop-plop…into the mini muffin tins they went. A little batter. A chicken nugget. And eight minutes later, out they came.
And…oh. My. Gracious. They were perfect.
A hint of honey buttery gooeyness at the bottom. Just enough barely-sweet waffle batter around the chicken nugget. I slathered the lot with honey and devoured theentirebatch.
You have to try these. I am not kidding. They taste like those little morning chicken-and-honey rolls you pay five bucks for at that fast food chicken joint down the road. They taste like grandma's kitchen. They taste like a southern kiss.
And they're so easy to make! Let's get you some Chicken Nugget ‘n Waffle Cupcakes

This is what your little chicken and waffle bites look like once baked.
And this is what they look like whence you pull them from the pan. They look a little lonely, don't they? Let's add a little sumpin' sumpin'…
Oh, honey! You know it. Honey, honey, honey, honey, honey. Life is golden.
