Chicken and Waffles

It started out rainy, but warm #win!  By the time I got downtown, it stopped raining and it was near 50 degrees.  The river was still partially frozen, but it was a glimpse of spring and it was a glorious walk to my office from the train station.

These muffins.  OMG.  I am posting the recipe for these tomorrow, but they taste like a potato biscuit.  Have you had a potato biscuit before??  You can check a recipe here for those – I am going to try to tweak this recipe by subbing in the Greek yogurt for the milk – I’ll keep you posted.

Pinky swear I’ll share this recipe tomorrow. 😀  Each muffin comes in at just 2 points, and no matter how you double, triple, quadruple, they are still two points each.  #love

I’m just teasing you now with this close up!

It was drizzling outside, so Jenn and I walked Macy’s.  She was wearing this necklace, and asked if I liked it.  Um. no.  So I did a pole and 1/3 of my Instagram followers loved it, the others didn’t.  But who cares?  If she loves it, that’s all that matters!

I worked late, even though I wasn’t supposed to, but I had overnight packages that had to get out.  It was still near 50 when I was heading to the train station at 6:15 – and all the ice melted!  It was a happy accident that I got the moon in this pic.

Hannah had some friends over last night, so the kitchen was quite cramped, and while I had visions of deep frying these chicken fingers because I had the points, that just didn’t work out, but these were still delicious.

Chicken and Waffles

Print Recipe
Serves: 2 Cooking Time: 10

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound chicken tenders
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grape seed oil
  • 2 tablespoons Frank's hot sauce
  • 2 waffles
  • 1/2 cup sugar free pancake syrup

Instructions

1

You can easily use frozen waffles, but I used my pumpkin waffle recipe, which is 3 points per waffle.

2

Mix the flour, salt and pepper together, and coat the chicken. Heat the oil in a cast iron or non-stick skillet and heat to medium. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken, about 7-8 minutes depending on the size of your chicken, turning to brown all sides.

3

Toss the Frank's hot sauce in the pan and coat the chicken. Place half the chicken over the toasted waffle, drizzle with the sugar free syrup and garnish with dried parsley.

Notes

Using the WW recipe builder, and with my 3 point waffles, this dinner is 6 points - 3 for the waffle, 2 for the chicken and 1 for the syrup.

Skinny Chicken and Waffles

This was healthy comfort food at it’s finest, and the perfect balance of sweet and savory.  And it was ready in about 15 minutes which was good since I didn’t fix dinner until nearly 8:15!

I was so happy about all the snow almost melting except for big piles in parking lots, but of course, being January in Chicago, we got a couple inches of snow overnight.  

In case you are wondering, the first day of spring is only 56 days away!

Happy Tuesday friends – make it a great day!

      Have you tried Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free flour? One of the women in my cooking club is gluten free, and I’ve substituted that for flour so she can eat stuff and I really can’t taste the difference.

    What could be better than chicken and waffles? Buffalo chicken and waffles, swoon 🙂 Looks so good and the pumpkin waffle an extra special flavor combo. Thank you. The new blog look is just perfect. I love everything about it.

    Good evening Biz…..Just wanted to stop in and say hi. Our weather up here isn’t that warm yet but we did get 35* last week. So it’s coming.
    I’ve been checking out all the goodness you make and one day will start cooking more again. But for now I’ll just keep reading and drooling.
    Take care and keep up the great work.
    Blessings!!
