Introduction: Chicken 'N Waffles on a Stick

About: Loving mom of two beautiful boys, obsessive compulsive confetti user & passionate foodie!

It's not clear who invented the first Chicken and Waffles, but  LA institution Roscoe's opened a restaurant in the 70's that made the dish famous. When you order Roscoe's famous dish you get a waffle drowned in maple syrup topped with a piece of crispy fried chicken. The way you eat it is with knife and fork, cutting through the entire stack, making sure you get a little of everything in each bite.

To my standard the Roscoes version is slightly flawed because you cant eat it on the go, so I applied a little american ingenuity and 
Behold, Chicken 'N  Waffles on a Stick were born.

This recipe with satisfy all your food cravings in one bite. It's sweet, spicy & savory and definitely food truck worthy. Serve with my Jalapeño Vanilla Breakfast Syrup. 

Ingredients:

1 bag Trader Joe's Mandarin Orange Chicken - (this recipe uses the chicken only! ) Discard or save the sauce packet for another meal.  You can also use your favorite fried chicken recipe

2 cups flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 3/4 cups buttermilk

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

Tools:

Carnival Corn Dog Maker

Sticks

Serve with Jalapeño Vanilla Breakfast Syrup 

Waffle Recipe: adapted from epicurious

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Whisk the buttermilk, vegetable oil and eggs together well. Gradually pour the milk mixture into the dry mixture. Stir until the mixture is almost blended. There will be a few lumps in the batter.

Pre-heat the chicken: 

Place the chicken in a saute pan with 1/4 cup of canola oil. Heat on medium or medium low heat for 5-6 minutes. You don't want to cook the chicken all the way through because it will dry out. The chicken will throughly heat when placed in the corn dog maker. 

Make the Chicken 'N Waffles on a Stick:

Spray the machine with cooking spray and pre-heat. You can also brush the machine with oil to prevent sticking. Use a silicone brush if you choose this method. You may have to trim some of the edges off the chicken, so that they fit into the the corn dog maker. Skewer 3 or 4 pieces of chicken onto each stick.

Once the machine is pre-heated, use a spoon or squeeze bottle to fill two of the slots with waffle batter. I found making two at a time was easiest, but you could try making four. Next, place the skewered chicken sticks on top of the waffle batter and squeeze a little extra batter on top so that none of the chicken is showing. 

Close the machine and wait until the green light indicates they are ready. It takes around 3-5 minutes to get the first batch of waffles golden brown. You can open the top of the machine and check on the color of the waffle. If they aren't golden brown, close the machine and wait an additional 2 min. Repeat until you achieve desired color on waffle. Trim the edges off the waffle. 

Serve immediately with Jalapeño Vanilla Breakfast Syrup

Enjoy!

    You could mix the meat in batter and use a regular waffle maker..mix the syrup in as well..you could also use a donut machine, cake ball machine, sandwich maker, Xpress 123, or Ready Set Go..smaller version of the Xpress (as seen on tv)

    A smaller cake ball version would be really interesting. Thank you for the suggestions.

    Brilliant. To the point that I might need a corn dog maker.

    Imno, your crown will shine in Heaven. Awesome concept.

    I suppose you could also use one of those old-fashioned "toasted pie" makers similarly? I think my Mom has one of the latter from the 60's banging around in the basement.
