{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. These aren’t just for game day, you could even serve them at a brunch.



I like them because they’re savory and sweet. Here’s my recent game day spread. Along with these sliders, pictured is my 7 Layer Greek Dip! Game_Day_Recipes

Cook’s Note:

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

  10. 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.
