Chicken and waffles is a delicious menu item that mixes both sweet and savory foods into a dish that lies somewhere between breakfast and lunch. This upscale version of the popular meal turns the popular flavors into a healthier gourmet meal with waffle-crusted chicken cutlets topped with a spicy maple sauce.
The recipe begins by repurposing frozen waffles and turning them into a crust to coat the chicken. The waffles are toasted, torn up and tossed into a food processor along with eggs, seasoning and spicy hot sauce. The crust is then coated on chicken pieces before being baked, rather than fried. The dish is served with a maple-infused dressing topped with pepper flakes and thyme for a healthier alternative.
This recipe showcases how consumers are re-purposing pre-made diner dishes as ingredients to use in new recipes that are healthier and more upscale.
