Cooper Cajun Chicken and Waffle Breakfast Sandwiches

Slice Slice SLICE 2 2 SERVES: 2

Chicken and waffles are one of those food combinations some people scratch their heads at. Until they’ve tasted it, that is. Because that’s when you realize chicken and waffles make one of the most perfect pairs the world has likely ever seen. Kind of like Cooper Cheese and, well, anything. Which is why this particular recipe could be considered exponentially more delicious than — you guessed it — pretty much anything.

INGREDIENTS

Sandwiches:
4 medium to large waffles (your favorite recipe or frozen)
2 breaded chicken filets or tenders, frozen
2 large eggs
4 slices Cooper Sharp White cheese

Cajun Honey Butter:
2 tablespoons pureed chipotle peppers in adobo
1 teaspoon honey
8 ounces softened unsalted butter
salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

Prepare the Cajun honey butter by combining all ingredients in a small bowl. Chill for 30 minutes while you prepare the sandwiches.

Prepare chicken according to instructions and cut to size of sandwich, if desired. Set aside and keep warm.

Prepare waffles as normal or according to package instructions. Make sure they’re nice and crispy (toast or bake them in the oven a bit if necessary). Set aside and keep warm.

Cook eggs to your preference, fried or scrambled.

Assemble your sandwiches:
Place two waffles on a board or serving tray. Place one of the fried or scrambled eggs on top of each waffle. Add prepared chicken filet or tenders. Add two slices each of Cooper Sharp cheese, crossed in an X to cover the chicken. Cap with the remaining waffles.

Remove the Cajun honey butter from the fridge, melt it and serve on the side for dunking or drizzle over the top of each sandwich.
