Frozen Chicken – So you can use any boneless chicken popper or boneless wing. This is a great option as you can use any boneless chicken that you would prefer.
Waffles – So feel free to reach for a mini waffle. You will toast these in your toaster oven and then once crispy remove and assemble.
Syrup – Reach for your favorite syrup and drizzle on top or use for dipping.
Toothpicks – The toothpicks are optional. This is going to help ensure your mini slider sandwiches stay together. They are a cute statement piece as well having them on a platter or plate for serving.
What Type Of Chicken Is Best?
Any breaded boneless chicken works for this recipe. You will simply cook the chicken as directed on the back of the package. Whether you bake or air fry the chicken is up to you.
The idea is smaller pieces of chicken that way you can easily eat it with the waffle without it being to large of a piece of chicken to bite into.
Where to Find Mini Waffles?
Head to the freezer section at your local grocery store. There are all brands and styles of mini waffles. Go for a classic like Eggo waffle minis, or reach for a cinnamon and sugar toast style mini waffles. No matter what they are a tasty pairing of the hint of sweet next to the savory chicken.
Can I Make These In Advance?
You will find that it is best to make and serve your chicken and waffle sliders fresh. The waffles will become a bit soggy if you let them sit too long after being toasted.
You can cook up the chicken and keep it warm in a covered dish in the oven at 250 degrees. Just make sure to cover tightly or it can dry out the chicken.
