Instructions

To make the waffles:

  • Preheat waffle maker to high heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Then, in a separate bowl, whisk eggs, then add cream, almond milk, and butter or oil, whisking until well combined.
  • Slowly whisk the wet ingredients into the dry and stir just until combined.
  • Spray waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray if needed. Pour 1/2 cup of batter onto hot waffle maker, close and cook for several minutes, until steam coming from waffle maker slows down a bit. Slowly open the waffle maker (if it doesn't open easily, your waffle likely needs to cook longer) remove waffle and repeat with remaining batter.

For the chicken:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F, and spray a foil lined baking sheet with oil.
  • Combine the almond flour with the seasonings. Coat each piece of chicken in the mixture, then transfer to the baking dish. Lightly spritz each piece of chicken with oil (I use a Misto!)
  • Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
    OR
    If you have an air fryer, I HIGHLY recommend that you use it for this chicken! Simply preheat to 375, place breaded chicken into fryer basket and spritz with oil. Cook for about 10-12 minutes or until done. Be sure to only cook one layer at a time.
  • Serve the waffles topped with chicken and the syrup of your choice!
