  • One 16 oz bag CHEF’S CRAFT® Gourmet Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks*
  • 4 frozen homestyle waffles
  • 2 tablespoon salted butter
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • additional maple syrup for serving if desired


  • Preheat oven to 425°F and spray a sheet pan with cooking spray.
  • Spread the breaded chicken breast chunks out on the pan and bake for 12 minutes.
  • While the chicken is baking, cut each waffle into 9 pieces; set aside.
  • In a small dish, add the salted butter and maple syrup. Microwave for 10-20 seconds or until the butter is melted; set aside.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven and use a spatula to move the chicken to one side of the pan.
  • Spread the cut waffles out on the other side of the pan and brush them with the butter/syrup mixture.
  • Bake an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the waffles are a light golden brown.
  • Thread one piece of breaded chicken and one waffle piece onto each skewer and place on a serving tray.
  • Serve with warmed maple syrup, if desired.


*the number of chicken pieces in each bag will vary.  If you've got some really large pieces, you can certainly cut them in half for a better "bite-sized" appearance.
