Fried Chicken & Waffle Sandwiches

I think it's pretty obvious that I love living in the South.  The weather is beautiful, the people are kind, and the food is amazing.  Recently, I had someone ask me what my favorite thing to do in Charleston is, and without hesitating, my answer was going out to eat.  There are so many fantastic restaurants here, but part of the reason I like going out so much is because I'm not exactly a Southern chef... yet.  However, with a little help from Eggo, I have created my own easy and delicious version of chicken and waffles.
Eggo can be versatile and isn’t just for breakfast!  There are endless possibilities to make mealtime, snack time, or anytime fun through creative recipes.  On my most recent trip to Target, I picked up Eggo Thick and Fluffy Waffles and Chocolatey Chip Waffles.  Eggo is now made with ‘No Artificial Flavors.' and 'Colors from Natural Sources.’  Look for the packaging with the green banner!
From April 16th through May 13th, all Eggo products are only $1.99 each at Target.  Keep an eye out for this great deal, as well as the Kellogg in-store end cap.
Staying in the freezer section while I was at Target, I also picked up a bag of breaded chicken breast fillets to make my chicken and waffle sandwiches even easier to put together, as well as some fresh produce to add flavor and color.  I love the variety that the grocery section at Target now has.
To make two delicious sandwiches at home, all you will need are:
- 2 frozen, breaded chicken breast fillets
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon sriracha
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup
- 4 Eggo Thick and Fluffy Waffles
- lettuce
- tomato (sliced)
To make these sandwiches:
1. Cook the chicken in the oven, according to package instructions.
2. While waiting for the chicken to cook, whisk together the mayo, sriracha, and syrup to create the sweet and spicy maple sriracha aioli.
3. Once the chicken is done, toast up the waffles until golden brown.
4. On one waffle, assemble the first sandwich: lettuce, tomato, chicken, aioli, and top waffle.
5. Repeat for a second sandwich and enjoy!
These sandwiches are the perfect weeknight dinner or brunch meal.  They're sweet, spicy, savory, and crispy all in one!
And, if you're still hungry after your sandwich, I highly suggest a waffle sundae piled high on an Eggo Chocolatey Chip waffle!

I have yet to jump on the chicken and waffles together bandwagon. I hear though if I get back to Nashville there's a place I must try so I may just wait until then, h!
