{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!

  1. What a cute idea! And so easy, too. Love it.

  2. I’ve never had chicken and waffles but I’ve always wanted to! I’m a sucker for the sweet/salty combo. Pinning these to make soon! :) I’m sure my kids would love them too!

  3. Genius! I love this idea! :) Thanks for the inspiration.

  9. Lovely waffles and a very creative use. My brain is thinking of all the possibilities of using Waffles as sandwich!

  10. 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! :)

  20. Marianne W. says:

    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.

  21. This looks soooo good! Pinning for later!

  22. Oh my gosh! These look delicious!

  23. How do you keep them warm when preparing in advance? I would like to take these to a party.

    • 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.

  24. 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 :)
