Chicken and Waffles is a well know combination and for today’s #EggoWaffleOff inspired recipe I decided to make my own twist on the traditional combination. Instead of the usual bread chicken on waffles with syrup, I went for a more savory flavor using buffalo chicken. I made a cold chicken salad with all the flavors of buffalo wings and placed it on top of the Mini Eggo Waffles.
These will work for lunch, a snack, or even an appetizer for dinner. You get the nice creamy consistency you would expect from a chicken salad along with the heat of the buffalo wing sauce, the bite of blue cheese, and the crunch of celery all topped on a crisp Eggo Waffle. They are delicious. If the heat is too much for you you can cut back on the amount of wing sauce or pick a mild version.
