The first time I looked through the Aug/Sept issue of Simple & Delicious, I sort of shrugged at this recipe. Frozen waffles. Premade chicken. Eh. Then I kept reading- honey and hot sauce. That's when I folded the page corner over and thought, I'm going to make these- but I'll do the chicken and the waffles from scratch.
Today I found myself with leftover fried chicken from a local restaurant, and some Eggo waffles. I heated the chicken in the oven at the same time I baked some pork chops for the guys. Toasted the waffles. I mixed together local honey and sriracha, heated slightly in the microwave.
So good. I love crispy, salty chicken, the heat and the sweet of the sauce, all on top of the golden brown waffle. I'll definitely be making this one again! Thank you to Lisa R for sharing the recipe :)
