Easy Chicken and Waffle Sliders recipe

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 brunch.

Syrup on Chicken and Waffle Sliders

You can serve those sliders with just a drizzle of maple syrup or with a layer of Creamy Homemade Coleslaw, or heck, both!

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!

Simple Chicken and Waffle Sliders

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!
  • If you’re going to bring these to a party, I suggest transporting the waffles, cut chicken, and syrup separately. Once you get to the party just rewarm the recipe components, assemble and serve.
  • If you serve these sliders with coleslaw, then just keep in mind that the coleslaw will cause the bottom waffle to become soggy if they sit too long. They’re best eaten right after they’re made.
  • If you’re looking to kick these sliders up a couple of notches, then add this Nashville hot chicken sauce to the sliders. You’ll thank me later!

    This looks soooo good! Pinning for later!

  2. Jasmine P says:

    Oh my gosh! These look delicious!

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

    1. 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.

  4. 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 🙂

    1. Yum, that sounds delicious!

  5. 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!!

    1. Yay! I am so glad the Chicken & Waffle Sliders were a hit! 🙂

  6. cheltenhamroad says:

    clever and simple! the perfect combo. Thanks very much

  7. My family will enjoy this

  8. ranadurham says:

    I am loving thids idea for breakfast

  9. Love this idea! My kids would love these little sliders!

  10. tannawings says:

    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.

  11. alicia0795 says:

    This looks so good! I always heard people talking about chicken and waffles but i was always hesitant about trying it because it sounded so weird!

  12. Richard Hicks says:

    They look so appetizing. Would be great to make a bunch of these and take them into work and share with coworkers

  13. What a marvelous idea! Who would’ve thought of waffles and chicken as a pair?

  14. john hutchens says:

    these look good. They sound easy to make and will be perfect for get togethers

    1. It’s an easy tailgating snack, too!

  15. I’ll be making these for my Thanksgiving potluck at work tomorrow! Can’t wait to try them! =) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Enjoy, they’re a real crowd pleaser! I’ve also added a little coleslaw to them and they’re great, but don’t add the coleslaw until right before serving!

    2. I love this idea for a work Holiday Party, but how can I keep them warm until our lunch time?


      1. Unfortunately these are best served as soon as you make them, and they do not keep well for a long period of time. Maybe you can bring a toaster to work to toast the waffles, and the chicken already cooked and reheat it in a microwave before serving?

  16. Tammy Blachly says:

    Do you toast the waffles in the toaster? Just curious on that step.


    1. Hi Tammy,

      This recipe calls for frozen mini waffles, toasted. I usually toast my waffles a few minutes before the chicken is ready.

  17. momma tigg says:

    where did you find your waffle maker? i am having hard time finding one to purchase.

    1. Unfortunately I didn’t make the waffles, I used Eggo Mini Waffles and just toasted them.

  18. These sound so good…I had something similar from a food truck once and have craved ever since. Thank you for the idea!

    1. You’re so welcome!

  19. Aimee Shugarman says:

    OMG these sliders are seriously THE BEST. My kids are hooked.

    1. Yay, so glad they were a hit!

  20. What a great little recipe for gameday! I love the fact that you used pre-made components and put them together in such a tasty way. Believe it or not, I’ve never had chicken and waffles. These look like a great place to start!
