chicken & waffle sliders with spicy maple mustard.

Posted by

I actually had this idea because last weekend I was at a wedding and they had chicken and waffle skewers. That was my first time tasting chicken and waffles and I was like WOAH – amazing.
I always buy Applegate chicken nuggets for wraps and such. I was like “these would be so perfect along with some mini waffles”.. and BOOM! WAFFLE SLIDERS! I found mini homestyle waffles at Whole Foods and made a homemade sauce. This recipe is a semi-homemade recipe and I love that it’s super fast to make. I use the brands that I love and believe in when it comes to nutrition. Then adding my own twist to it made it even better!

RECIPE: (I did not put how many waffles or nuggets because you can really make as many as you want!  The sauce makes a good amount, but for reference, I made about 15 sliders)

  • mini waffles (any brand you prefer)
  • chicken nuggets (any brand you prefer)
  • coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


  • place about 3 cups coleslaw mix in a large bowl
  • add olive oil and apple cider vinegar to coleslaw and let sit for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally (this will slightly pickle the slaw)
  • after 1 hour, drain the vinegar and olive oil from the slaw
  • toast waffles
  • heat chicken according to package
  • for the sauce, add whole grain mustard, yellow mustard, hot sauce, and maple syrup in a small bowl and mix together
  • assemble waffles sliders – waffle, spicy maple mustard, chicken nugget, slaw, waffle! YUM!
