{Game Day Eats} Chicken & Waffle Sliders

Alright folks I have a SUPER quick & easy game day recipe for you that everyone will love. Plus it’s kid friendly, too. I present to you Chicken & Waffle Sliders. I took the classic comfort food chicken and waffles and turned it into a portable appetizer that is perfect for your next get together. These aren’t just for game day, you could even serve them at a brunch.



I like these Chicken & Waffle Sliders because they’re savory and sweet and not to mention SO incredibly easy to make. Below is my recent game day spread. Along with these sliders, pictured is my 7 Layer Greek Dip!


Cook’s Note for Chicken & Waffle sliders:

Cook up as many waffles and chicken fingers as needed. As a rule of thumb, 1 chicken finger will get you about 3-4 sliders.

I used Tyson Chicken Fingers and Eggo Mini Waffles for this recipe.

You can dress these Chicken & Waffle Sliders up by adding a little coleslaw to them, delicious!

    Love these chicken and waffle mini sliders. Finger foods are always great on game day and lots of other parties too.

    Am sure we can find a cocktail to pair up with them in the man cave 😀

    You seem to have a lot of different combo that I would never ave thought to try, but thanks to you I can. Thank you! :)

    These look sooooo good! I went to DC last year and visited a place called Wicked Waffle where they made everything with waffles and I LOVED it :) I am going to try these never thought of using Eggos! Thanks :)

    When the Kauffman Hotel in ZElienople, Pa was operating in the 1950’s, one of their specialties was chicken and waffles. They might have had honey and maple syrup with them. I can remember loving the combination when I was a child.

      These are tricky to stay warm, especially from the airy nature of the waffles. Have you tried wrapping them in foil? That might work. I think your best bet though is preparing them right before serving. Or even re-heating once you get to the party in a 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes.

    I absolutely loved this recipe! I added a little twist to it by adding a little sriracha to my maple syrup for the folks who like a little spice! Thanks for the idea :)

    Last night, my husband and I made your chicken and waffles recipe for a party that included an appetizer war and, out of the 15 entries, we won! We just substituted Chick-fil-a nuggets for the Tyson ones, but everything else was the same. So delicious–and cute too! Thanks so much for idea!!

    I have never tried chicken nd waffles together. These look good but I am still on the fence about them. I might have to try them.
