How To Make Chicken And Waffle Cookies That Are Beyond Amazing

Chicken and waffles is definitely a go-to brunch favorite for many people, but how do you turn this dish into a go-to anytime favorite? By making it in cookie form, obviously. The culinary geniuses over at Spoon University have devised a way to make chicken and waffle cookies — and needless to say, we're pretty psyched about it. Savory and sweet mix together brilliantly in this delightfully crispy, crunchy cookie hybrid. All you need to get started is your fave fried chicken, a killer maple sugar cookie recipe, and a trusty waffle iron (duh). The rest? Pure chicken and waffle magic. This is one recipe you gotta see to believe, so go ahead and give it a try. We promise you won't regret it. If anything, it will just leave you wondering what else you can turn into a cookie.

We made chicken and waffles into a cookie, and it was pretty freakin’ epic. Essentially, we took some tasty fried chicken, ripped off the crispy exterior, and popped it back into the toaster to crisp it up even more (basically bacon, am I right?). Then, we added it into a simple maple sugar cookie recipe, and cooked them in a WAFFLE IRON. Bojangles ain’t got nothin’ on this chick (pun intended lol).
