Chicken Nugget and Waffle Cupcakes

Little one-bite versions of chicken and waffles. These delicious treats are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or party snacks. Perfectly sweet batter and chicken baked in honey butter.

Ingredients

6
tablespoons butter
1/4
cup honey
1
container (5.1 ounce) Bisquick™ Shake 'n Pour™ pancake mix
24
frozen breaded chicken breast chunks

Directions

  • 1 Slice butter into six 1-tablespoon slices, then cut each slice into four small cubes. Place one cube in the bottom of each mini muffin cup in a nonstick mini muffin tin. (Note: if using a standard muffin tin, spray with nonstick baking spray before adding the butter). Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon of honey over the butter in each cup.
  • 2 Add 2/3 cup of water to the Bisquick™ Shake N Pour container. Shake. Pour just enough batter in each muffin cup to fill the muffin cup 3/4 of the way with batter.
  • 3 Press a breaded chicken chunk into the center of the batter in each muffin cup.
  • 4 Bake at 400°F for 9-13 minutes, or just until the edges of the waffle batter begin to turn light, golden brown. Remove muffins from each cup immediately by running a knife gently around the edges, the lifting off to a serving plate.
  • 5 Serve with remaining honey for dipping. Enjoy!

Chicken Nugget 'n Waffle Cupcakes

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

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, shall we?
