Chicken and Waffle Sliders

Chicken and waffles: the perfect blend of sweet and savory. However if you’re like me and trying to make smarter eating choices this year, the typical chicken and waffles dish may be out of the question. That’s why I’ve decided to create my own take on chicken and waffles: Chicken and Waffle Sliders. The best part about this dish is that you can enjoy those tasty sweet and savory flavors without the guilt.

I absolutely love using Van’s Power Grains Waffles in this recipe. Not only are they packed with 10g of protein per serving, but they are made with many nutritious grains: steel-cut oats, millet, brown rice, and cracked red wheat. Plus, their thick and delicious texture makes them taste homemade.

Van’s Waffles are the perfect wholesome breakfast or snack option to help my entire family kick the new year off right.

Being the pickiest eater in the world, you know a recipe is delicious when you get two thumbs up from this kid!

  1. The sliders look like a really great way to switch up the waffle from how we usually eat them.

  2. Oh those look so good! What a great option for a bun! Having to eat gluten free due to celiac disease….I cannot wait to try this with their gluten free waffles!

  3. I come from the great frozen north, and I never heard of chicken and waffles until we movied further south!

  4. Chicken and waffles is awesome. I recently made it at home and fell in love! It would be easier using Van’s, one less thing to make from scratch!

  5. The chicken and waffles combo reminds me of that wonderful 1945 movie starring Joan Crawford, called Mildred Pierce, in which Mildred opens a restaurant that serves chicken and waffles to support her family.

  6. We’ve never tried chicken n waffles both together before, but after seeing this definitely on my list! Looks yummy, and I know my grandsons would love it.

  7. My wife and I are huge chicken and waffle fans. We’ve started making them on our own, but it can definitely get labor intensive, especially for something that you can eat so quickly (or at least we do).

  8. Chicken and waffles is such an interesting combination! You never would have expected it to take off like it has!

  9. Oh my goodness, those look awesome. Can you believe I’ve never had chicken & waffles together. Sounds like an awesome pairing.

  10. These look delicious and totally kid friendly. I’m definitely going to be giving this recipe a try. I was wondering what the dip would be. Honey sounds like a good complimentary flavor.
