Chicken and waffles. 

Apparently it’s been a thing for at least a century but it’s only become a well known thing around her for the last few years.

It’s such an intriguing, soulful dish and boy oh boy, is it ever an amazing combination

With Easter and March break coming up there is ample opportunity to serve my family amazing breakfast and brunches.

 

Canadian-Chicken

 

I decided to shake it up a little bit and turn chicken and waffles into a dish perfect for serving at brunch by oven frying my fresh Canadian chicken and turning it into a Chicken and Waffles Casserole. 

It’s great to make the night before and then just pop it into the oven in time to enjoy for a family brunch.

The best part about this casserole is that the oven fried chicken retains its flavour and crunch, and is so much healthier than traditionally fried chicken. 

Mmmm.  So satisfying!

  1. I had never thought of having chicken for breakfast but we have bacon occasionally so why not chicken? I love your recipe and I know I will try it. Thank you so much for thls and other recipies.

  2. ELizabeth, I am planning this for Mother’s Day brunch.Since I like the texture of the dish in the pictures, can you please tell me if you let this sit overnight with the egg mixture or exactly when did you compile 100% of the ingredients together. I do not want the chicken to dry out so please solve this dilemma, Elizabeth. Thank you!

    1. When I made it for this post I did not let it sit at all, I baked the chicken and then compiled all the ingredients and threw it in the oven.

  3. I just had my first experience with chicken & waffles at a pub last month & it was heavenly!! It is now a favorite for me. Honestly I’ve never seen it in a casserole & I know I will love this 100%!

  4. Hi Elizabeth, this looks delicious. Do you have any idea how it reheats if I were to make this ahead for the week?

  5. Hey there! We are in Nashville, so this is a PERFECT DISH to fix for guests! I’m a new mom… so I’m all about shortcuts. Do you think I could use already fried chicken (from either the freezer section or fresh from the deli) instead? I’m thinking it would be a huge time saver!

  6. 5 stars
    I’ve made this as a make-ahead breakfast for myself at least 5 times now, and it’s always perfect! I use my favorite vegetarian “chicken” tenders in place of the homemade ones in the recipe, which not only makes it vegetarian but a bit quicker to do. Other than that, I don’t typically mess with the recipe — it’s too good just as it is! And it reheats really well for a week of breakfasts, which makes it perfect for someone like me who never has time to whip something up in the morning and would prefer to “grab and go” something I did on a weekend. Thank you for this awesome idea and recipe!
