Chicken Bites and Peanut Butter Waffles with PB and Honey Glaze
Chicken and waffles seems to be all the rage right now, and while I have yet to have it at a restaurant, I decided it was time to make my own version at home. These chicken bites are breaded and baked, nestled on a golden buttermilk waffle, and drizzled with Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple and honey glaze. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner – it doesn’t matter when you make these. Just do it!

1 pound chicken breast
2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp. each salt and pepper
1 cup flour
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 tsp. each salt, pepper, and smoked paprika
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple
2 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple
1/4 cup honey
Dice the chicken into bite size pieces and toss in a dish with the buttermilk, salt, and pepper. Let the chicken marinate for at least 15-20 minutes or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
In a medium bowl, mix 1 cup flour, 1 cup panko, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika together. Toss each piece of chicken in the flour and panko mixture until each piece is coated. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the chicken is cooked and golden.
While the chicken is baking, heat your waffle iron.
Mix the 2 1/4 cups flour with the baking powder and sugar together in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk the Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple with the eggs and the buttermilk. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour and stir together until the flour is incorporated.
Gently fold the oil and salt into the waffle batter.
Scoop your waffle batter onto your greased hot waffle iron and cook, 4-5 minutes, until the waffle is crisp and golden.
Top each waffle with a few pieces of the chicken.
Mix 1/4 cup of Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple with a 1/4 cup of honey and drizzle the peanut butter/honey mixture over the chicken and waffles.
