Recipe: Smoky Sauced Chicken & Waffles
Savory meets a hint of sweet in whole wheat waffles made with Chef-mate ¡Que Bueno! White Cheddar Cheese Sauce and chopped chives topped with maple-black-pepper-glazed chicken and smooth, smoky cheese sauce.
3/4 cup Whole wheat flour
1 tsp Baking soda
1 Tbsp Maple syrup
1 each Egg
1/2 cup Skim milk
1/2 cup Applesauce
1 Tbsp Chive, finely chopped
1/4 cup Maple syrup
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1 each Roasted chicken thigh or leg
1 cup Chef-mate® ¡Que Bueno!® White Cheddar Cheese Sauce, warm
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour and baking powder. With the mixer running on low, add the maple syrup and egg and beat until combined. Add milk in a steady stream until a batter forms. Add remaining ingredients and increase speed to medium. Mix until batter is smooth. Reserve cold for service.
2. In a medium sauté pan, over medium heat combine cheddar sauce, liquid smoke, and black pepper. Reserve warm for service.
3. Pre-heat a waffle iron. Using a 6 oz. ladle, scoop the waffle batter onto hot waffle iron and cook until cooked through, per waffle iron’s instructions.
4. Combine maple syrup and black pepper. Glaze each piece of roasted, warm chicken with 2 tbsp. of the maple glaze.
