What’s on my menu for Galentine’s Day? Waffles, of course! But just because breakfast food is the official food of Galentine’s Day, that doesn’t mean you must have a brunch. Why not take your waffles in a different direction?
It’s so easy to make these fun chicken and waffle appetizers. Start with frozen mini waffles and fresh chicken tenders. You can make your own chicken tenders, but I bought these from my favorite neighborhood deli. I chose both regular tenders and buffalo style.
Heat the waffles according to package directions. Cut the pre-made tenders into smaller pieces that will fit onto the mini waffles and heat as well. Place one piece of chicken on each waffle, and drizzle with maple syrup.
I used this delicious one here from Harry & David. It’s so good that I also put out a small bowl filled with the syrup for additional dipping!
When using the buffalo style tenders, I garnished with bleu cheese crumbles and served a bleu cheese dressing for the dip. A little hot sauce, mine is from the Brooklyn Grange, adds a nice kick to this version.
These waffles come in six divine flavors, and you can mix it up and create your own assortment. And they’re individually packaged so they make a perfect little Galentine’s gift.
Create your own gift card featuring Leslie’s iconic “friends, waffles, work” quote and attach one to each waffle. Fill a pretty basket and let your friends help themselves.
