More About This Recipe
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!
Fingers in, mouths open, it's time to indulge yourself, chicken nugget ‘n waffle style!
