The gold standard of great foods on a stick is reserved for honey battered corn dogs and shish kabob (which is surprisingly spelled just like it sounds). But when I saw this absolutely amazing concoction of breakfast food combined with the queen of meats, I fell in love.
Now, if you are looking at this picture and still don't know what it is, you are definitely not a chicken and waffles fan, otherwise you would have figured it out right away. I mean, what else goes well with syrup-drenched waffles? Beef? I don't think so.
Instructables user lmnopeas basically just shrunk down a whole chicken and waffles meal into a neat and tidy (and devilishly good looking) corn dog style treat on a stick. If you're going to try your hands at this, you'll need the regular ingredients for waffles (flour, sugar, eggs, milk, oil, and salt) and your choice of chicken.
lmnopeas used a bag of frozen Trader Joe's Mandarin Orange Chicken (save the sauce) to make the process faster. You can choose from a myriad of popcorn chicken or bite-sized chicken options, or even make your own if you're feeling ambitious.
You will also want a corn dog maker, which you can find on eBay or Amazon for about 20 bucks. And don't forget the sticks—skewers will work as well.
Now, with all the ingredients in place, you can start making your waffle batter. Just combine all the waffle ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Once the batter is done, you can start on the chicken. If you use a frozen version, you can just pan fry it with a little oil to get it crispy.
Once the chicken turns golden brown, you can go ahead and turn off the heat. Put the cooked chicken on your skewers (this is the fun part); three to four pieces per stick works best.
Spray or brush some oil on the corn dog maker and preheat it. Place a stick-full-o-chicken in each slot of the machine and pour your waffle mix directly over them.
You can probably guess where it goes from here.
