This is my take on chicken and waffles- waffle crusted chicken tenders!  These were so good and so much fun to eat!

This was a great weeknight meal.  I used frozen waffles and pulsed them in the food processor to make the crumbs.  We drizzled the chicken tenders with honey and used some honey BBQ sauce for dipping.  You could skip the BBQ sauce and just use more honey or nothing at all.   No matter what you decide to dip them in, give them a try ASAP!

  1. I made these tonight. I used Multi-Grain "Healthy" waffles. Turned out amazing and will be added to the regular menu. So easy too. I had everything plated in half an hour. I paired it with some sweet potato fries.

    Thanks so much!

  2. I just discovered your blog since we both use the blogroll, and I have to say-this is genius. I will be making this, and soon!

  3. @Lawhorn's – thanks! I do take all the photos. I use a Canon S95 – it works great!

    LOVE yoru seasoning! I use it all the time!

  4. Oh my gosh, my maiden name is Lawhorn, and I couldn't believe it when I saw that was the name of your seasoning. I thought you meant Lawry's, but when I looked it up, I found the company. I've never heard of their company, but I left them a message on their blog. 🙂

    This looks delicious, BTW.
