Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 24 frozen breaded chicken breast chunks

Steps

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray the inside of mini muffin tins with non-stick baking spray. 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. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon of honey over the butter in each cup.
  • 2
    Stir the pancake mix, milk and egg together until blended. 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!

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!
