I’ve never actually had the Southern treat of chicken and waffles despite my Texas heritage, but it’s always intrigued me. For the longest time, I would always think it just sounded too over the top for me and then these last few years it just sounded so good and comforting. Of course now having traditional chicken and waffles would kill me so I had to get a little creative and figure out how I could make it allergy friendly for me, but still let my family enjoy it as well. Enter my chicken & waffle sandwiches! Warning: these babies are addictive….there I’ve warned you.
I think I’ve had one of these sandwiches every day for the last week and my kids are begging for them again this weekend for lunch. Luckily, you can get super fancy (like I will show in the recipe) or leave something off if the kids don’t like it.
My version uses frozen waffles, but if you have some leftover from breakfast USE THEM…it would make this recipe amazing. So for my supper, I used a gluten free (dairy free too) frozen waffle and the rest of the family had just regular frozen waffles…get a good brand, not the type your kids want. Afterall, this is your supper so make it scrumptious by using the best ingredients you can. I also left the cheese off mine and the sauce off the kids. See how versatile they are?!?!? And the best part is that they are ready in under 10 minutes!
Chicken and Waffles Sandwiches
This 15 minute supper is a fun and easy twist on southern fried chicken and waffles. I use frozen waffles but I bet they'd be even more delicious if you use homemade waffles!
- 8 frozen waffles (regular or gluten free)
- 16 slices deli-sliced chicken breast
- 2 apples, cored & finely sliced
- 4 slices medium cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup mustard
- 1/4 cup honey
- Cook waffles according to package instructions in a toaster oven*. While waffles are cooking combine mustard and honey in a small bowl.
- On four waffles smear honey mustard and top with cheese,4 slices of chicken, and about half of an apple worth of slices. Top with another waffle, cut in half and serve.
- *Note: I double toast mine to get them crispy since I hate soggy waffles. If you toast it twice turn do the "toast level" on your machine for the second one to keep them from burning.

I have never tried waffles with chicken. Looks really tasty!
stanley Cahn says
I live in South Carolina and this dish is not unusual here. I don’t know how you would put a little syrup on it, which is the way it is usually served around here.
But, I believe it would make a great panini type sandwich
Wendy O'Neal says
Oh…now that would be super tasty Stanley.

I’ve never had chicken and waffles before. My mom is from Tenn and she has never heard of it, either.
What a creative sandwich! This version sounds delicious.
We see chicken and waffles advertised alot. Seems to be a popular idea although I have yet to try it. Looks yummy!
Lolli @ Better in Bulk says
I can’t believe how good this sounds! I never would have thought to put them together in a sandwich.
Ellen Christian says
I have honestly never had chicken and waffles together before. Does sound good though!
