Spicy Fried Chicken Nuggets and Mini Waffles: The Waffles

Delicious mini waffles any time. Gluten free option included. I recommend brushing waffle iron with butter to prevent sticking. If making sliders place a piece of fried chicken (recipe above) between two waffles and top with butter and maple syrup.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour gluten free friends use your favorite GF flour, I like Perfect Blend by Namaste (link above
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk dairy free use almond milk
  • 1 cup melted butter plus additional for topping waffles
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or honey optional, I leave it out because in my opinion the fruit and syrup are plenty sweet!
  • 2 Tsp vanilla paste


  1. Heat mini waffle maker. Whisk flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk in eggs, buttermilk, vanilla paste and melted butter till well combined. (add sugar or honey if desired, whisk)
  2. Cook waffles according to waffle maker instructions.
  3. If making sliders, place a piece of fried chicken between two waffles and drizzle with syrup and melted butter if desired (I always desire melted butter).
