ingredients

2 St. Pierre brioche waffles

4 Chicken breast tenders

2 Eggs

1 Cup panko

1/2 Tsp. Onion powder

1/2 Tsp. Garlic powder

1/2 Tsp. Paprika

Kosher Salt and Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 Cup honey

1/2 Tsp. Calabrian chili flakes

1/2 Cup canola oil

DIRECTIONS

1. Mix the honey and chili flakes in a small bowl and put to the side.
2. Heat the broiler to high in the oven.
3. Whip the egg with a pinch of salt and pepper in a shallow bowl and mix the panko with the onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and a couple of pinches of salt and several grounds of freshly ground black pepper in a second shallow dish.
4. Heat the oil in a cast iron pan until really hot but not smoking.
5. While the oil is heating, dip the chicken in the egg mix and let the excess drip off. Then dip into the panko mix, pressing to make sure the breadcrumbs stick to the chicken.
6. Place the chicken pieces into the hot oil and fry on both sides until golden brown. About 3-4 minutes per side.
7. Meanwhile, place the waffles on a baking sheet and heat under the broiler until warm and slightly browned. A couple of minutes on each side. (Watch carefully to be sure they don’t burn.)
8. Remove the chicken from the oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain the excess oil. Sprinkle with salt immediately when the chicken comes out of the oil.
9. Place one waffle and two chicken tenders on each plate. Drizzle with the hot honey and enjoy!

NOTE:  I love making waffles (You’ll find many of them on my brunch page.) But, when I saw these new brioche liege style waffles in the bakery section of my grocery store, I decided to try them. This has been a nice addition to my menu planning. When you find something new, I like to play with it to make it my own.

These waffles are almost cake like and have little pieces of pearl sugar baked into them. The good news is that they are small so they are the perfect little accent to my chicken fingers. This dish could easily be an appetizer, lunch or even a fun brunch dish. Buying the waffles makes this dish fast and easy to make. I use a pretty traditional breading station (minus the flour) and whip up a quick hot honey using chili flakes. BTW, if you like spicier food, add more chili flakes to your honey. You can also use maple syrup and chili flakes for a different drizzle.  If you like this recipe, be sure to sign up for newsletters to get them sent right to your inbox.
