Mini Chicken and Waffles caught my attention in Southern Living in the holiday party starter section, where they turned classic Southern dishes into adorable finger foods fit for company!
We enjoyed these last year as one of
our party bites for New Year’s.
Of course you can make Buttermilk Chicken and Waffles with Peach-Horseradish Maple Syrup, but after all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I was looking for some short cuts. My version is really complicated be sure you pay close attention to the steps involved. . .
Buy some Eggo Minis and drive thru Chick-fil-A
and order some nuggets or pick up a tray. . . :)
For the syrup I mixed pepper jelly with maple syrup. I didn’t measure, just tasted and mixed until we had the right amount of sweet heat. For a guideline, Southern Living’s recipe for Peach-Horseradish Maple Syrup was 1/4 cup preserves to 1 cup Maple Syrup, but adjust to your taste.
You can get fancy and serve with a party pick,
but these go fast so you’ll want to
order a tray of nuggets! :)
