Amazing Chicken & Waffles

Turns out you don’t have to travel too far for some good ole southern cookin’. You don’t even have to be a hipster at Smorgasburg in Brooklyn to get your hands on a vegan delicacy such as Chicken & Waffles. This is a great dish you can make for your friends and family, for breakfast, or dinner. I’ve always been a fan of clashing, unexpected savory/sweet flavors.

This vegan recipe is actually a modification from one of Bobby Flay’s Throwdown show competitions, but without the dairy/buttermilk, or meat. There are plenty of recipes out there for vegan waffles but let’s be honest, we’re hungry. For time purposes, decided to try Van’s (Totally Natural) gluten-free waffles with Gardein seven-grain crispy tenders (found at Target). The result, outstanding! Prepare your mouth’s field of tastebuds for a battle between this savory-sweet delight.
