June 3, 2014

Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon, cut in half

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) salt
  • Dash freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Bisquick* Mix
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) chipotle chili powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil

  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) bourbon whiskey

  • 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) Bisquick* Mix
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) regular or nonalcoholic beer
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon over low heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  • 2
    Between pieces of waxed paper or plastic wrap, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 2-inch pieces. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  • 3
    In shallow bowl, mix 1/2 cup Bisquick mix and the chipotle powder. In another bowl, beat egg with fork. Dip chicken into egg mixture; coat with Bisquick mixture.
  • 4
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in centre and coating is golden brown. Meanwhile, in another small bowl, stir together Maple-Bourbon Butter ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
  • 5
    Heat waffle iron. In medium bowl, stir Beer Waffle ingredients until blended. Pour about 1 tablespoon batter onto centre of each quarter of hot waffle iron. Close lid of waffle iron. Bake about 2 minutes or until steaming stops. Carefully remove waffles. Repeat with remaining batter, making 32 small waffles.
  • 6
    To assemble: Place waffle section on plate; spread Maple-Bourbon Butter on waffle, top with 1 half slice bacon, 1 piece chicken, and another waffle section.

  • Make Ahead: Make these cute snacks or appetizers up to 1 day ahead of time and reheat them in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes. Spread Maple-Bourbon Butter on waffles, and assemble just before serving.
  • Variation: Beer lovers may want to choose an ale or a more robust beer for these waffles. Those who prefer a milder taste should use light beer.
