Every few months we finally get a Saturday where we have nothing to do and nowhere to be. Today is one of those days. It is rainy and cold here in Ohio which makes it perfect for making a comfort food southern staple for brunch and staying in our jammies for most of the day.
We took full advantage of the recent Simple Truth Organic Sale at Kroger last week and stocked up some chicken, eggs, and almond milk.
For this recipe you will need:
1 organic chicken breast
1 cup panko
1 cup flour
1 tsp garlic powder
¾ cup all purpose flour
¼ cup cornstarch
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
1 cup unsweetened organic almond milk
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp avocado oil
1 egg (separated)
1 tbsp sugar
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Syrup:
¼ cup organic honey
1 tbsp sriracha
Dash garlic powder
For the Kids:
Organic pure maple syrup

Preheat Oven to 350°F. Place a cooking rack over a sheet pan and spray with olive oil cooking spray and set aside. Add flour to a plate with 1 tsp garlic powder. Add panko to another shallow plate.
Whisk together 2 eggs in a bowl.
Cut chicken breast in half and then into strips. Dredge chicken in the flour mix, then dip them in the egg wash and finish in the panko before placing on the prepared pan and placing in the over for about 25 minutes.
Preheat waffle maker. I have a smaller Oster Belgian Waffle Maker. While chicken is baking, prepare the waffle batter. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. In a glass measuring cup, mix together the almond milk and avocado oil and then beat in the egg yolk. In another small mixing bowl, beat the egg white until soft peaks form and then add the sugar and beat until the peaks become firm and glossy. Beat in the vanilla.
Next pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until just blended. Grab a spatula and gently fold in the beaten egg white and sugar until it's incorporated in the other ingredients. (do not over mix.)
Spray the preheated wafflemaker lightly with olive oil and pour in enough batter to cover the bottom. Bake for 4-5 minutes until slightly brown and a little crisp. While they cook, mix together the honey, sriracha, and garlic powder. Add a few chicken strips on a waffle and drizzle with the sauce. ENJOY!
