It’s true love!

Extra crispy chicken cuddled up in a cheddar waffle then topped off with lettuce, maple cured crispy bacon and a good drizzle of maple balsamic vinaigrette.  Trust me, it’s rather tasty.

Bite Me!

I’m not usually a ravenous eater, but deary me, this wrap brings it out of me. I love the crispy chicken that is double fried for an extra crunch. For the waffles, the cheddar gives them that savory edge that truly compliments the wrap as a whole.

If you enjoy a bit of spice in your life, by all means add some crushed chili flakes or hot sauce to the waffle batter or chicken coating. My favorite bit would have to be the Maple and Balsamic Vinaigrette.

I’m fairly addicted to the dressing and also love it drizzled over a lovely green salad full of tomatoes, chopped dates and feta cheese and a few toasted pine nuts sprinkled over top.

Oh man it’s good stuff.

If you want to make your own All Purpose Baking Mix, I posted a recipe a few months ago on how to make it, it’s so easy to make and taste brilliant used for pancakes, waffles and so much more.

Seal the bag, place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight to marinate. Take out of fridge for at least 15 minutes prior to frying so it can come to room temperature.

  5. Carefully place all the coated Chicken once at a time into the hot oil and deep fry for 5 - 6 minutes.
  6. Remove, drain on a paper towel lined plate and let the chicken rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Add the Chicken back to the hot oil once more this time for 4 - 5 minutes or until golden brown, remove, drain and keep warm in 300°F oven until ready to serve.

For the Waffles:

  1. In a bowl, mix together Bisquick/Baking Mix, Egg, Milk, Oil, Salt & Pepper and your favorite shredded cheese. Mix well.
  2. Heat waffle iron, spray with cooking spray, pour about 1/4 cup or recommended amount of batter for your waffle iron, so that you don't have a spill over, close cover and cook for about 4 - 5 minutes or until just golden.

For the Dressing:

  1. Mix Maple syrup and Balsamic vinegar in small bowl and set aside until ready to use.

To Assemble:

  1. Fold a warm large round waffle in half add 1 chicken breast, lettuce, crispy smoked bacon and generously drizzle Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette and serve with additional Vinaigrette on the side. Can add tomatoes and extra cheese if desired.
  2. Serve and Enjoy.
