It’s no secret that chicken and waffles taste amazing together, but why should you have to deal with two foods sitting separately side by side when you can just combine them into one delicious handheld snack? That’s the exact question that led me to create these chicken and waffle wings.
The waffle breaded chicken wings were actually amazingly easy to make. I started off by cooking four “drumette” sections of chicken wings and whipping up some waffle batter. Once that was done I simply dunked the wings in the batter and placed them in my waffle iron with the ends of the wings (which I left unbattered so the wings would be easier to pick up and eat) sticking out. After that all you really need to do is drizzle some syrup over them and you’re all set!
If you try making these yourself the one thing you’ll need to be sure of is that you select wings that have a decent amount of meat on them. No one wants to take a bite only to get a mouthful of waffles and barely any chicken. The chicken wings I used were 1/4 of a pound each and I ended up with the perfect chicken to waffle ratio.
You know how back when I made the chocolate covered deep fried Triple Double Oreos I commented that they’d be the perfect food to be sold at state fairs all across the country? Forget about those for a second, because these chicken and waffle wings are what fair goers need to be eating this summer!
