Sweet and Savory Chicken and Waffle Recipes

Which one will you choose? Grilled Cheese Chicken & Waffle with Bacon or Cinnamon Sugar Chicken & Waffles with Banana? You might just have to try them both!

Hands down, one of my favorite parts about having our daughter, Taylor, is being able to relive childhood memories with her. I can’t remember the last time that I bought Kellogg’s® Eggo® Homestyle Waffles, which is ridiculous because I certainly didn’t intend to let them fall out of my life but somehow I did. That is, until the other week when we were browsing through the freezer aisle at Shaw’s Supermarket: “Waffles mama!! Look at the waffles mama!” (I mean, how could I not snag a box?! Eggo Waffles were my JAM back in the day!) My eyes immediately darted to MorningStar Farms® Chik’n Nuggets in the same aisle and right then and there, I decided that chicken and waffles was happening.

I purchased and saved on these products at my local Shaw’s, but you can also shop and save at any of the Albertsons Companies family of stores including Albertsons, Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Star Market, and Carrs/Safeway.

I know. You’re jealous, right? Here’s where it gets better. Buy Any Two Eggo or MSF products and Save $1.00 on Any Syrup or Honey Mustard. – click here for the coupon! There! Now you have the perfect excuse to join me in this chicken and waffle adventure. Which recipe would you create?! I honestly couldn’t decide whether to go sweet or savory, so I kind of had to go both ways with this. My family loved them equally, too. I think it was a legitimate tie. I mean, it’s hard to beat those MorningStar Chik’n Nuggets when they’re coated in sugar and cinnamon but the other recipe has bacon, cheese, and MorningStar Chik’n Nuggets. Don’t make me choose!

This is probably going to be a “thing” in our house from now on. I can just tell when something lands around here and this landed. (Can you tell that I’m a bit proud of myself?) I mean, how great does it feel when your entire family loves the meal you made for them?! Not to mention, you can have this for breakfast or dinner and it takes no time at all to make. I am positive that you don’t have loads of time on your hand to make dinner every night or breakfast every morning. Life is crazy, and recipes like this make meal time easy and fun. Food should be fun, after all.

Here’s the deal again: Buy Any Two Eggo or MSF products and Save $1.00 on Any Syrup or Honey Mustard.
