Maple syrup 1 tbsp
Eggs, whole, raw, fresh, (1 each) 2.5 oz
Milk, skimmed 4 fl.oz

Method

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour and baking powder. With the mixer running on low, add 1 tablespoon maple syrup and egg, beat until combined. Add milk in a steady stream until a batter forms. Add applesauce and chives, increase speed to medium. Mix until batter is smooth. Reserve cold for service.
  2. In a medium sauté pan, over medium heat combine White Cheddar Cheese Sauce, liquid smoke, and black pepper. Reserve warm for service.
  3. Pre-heat a waffle iron. Using a 6 oz. ladle, scoop the waffle batter onto hot waffle iron and cook until cooked through, per waffle iron’s instructions.
  4. Combine 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Glaze each piece of roasted, warm chicken with 2 tbsp. of the maple glaze.
  5. To make one portion, top half of a waffle with 1 chicken thigh or leg. Drizzle with ¼ cup smoky cheddar sauce and serve immediately.

Use premade waffles, if desired.
