Back in September, Popeye’s released their new “Chicken Waffle Tenders” — deep-fried chicken strips with waffle batter mixed into the breading, making for a fluffier, richer piece of poultry than your typical nugget. Early net reviews were largely positive, complaining mostly about the missed opportunity. Popeye’s take on the chicken and waffles trend simply wasn’t waffle-y enough to matter.
Luckily, Nick from Dude Foods made no such mistake with his new Waffle-Breaded Chicken Nuggets. His second riff on the trend, following his waffle-breaded chicken wings, actually manages to make the famous combination even more portable. Think the perfect way to maximize maple sauce packet dunking, should you decide to get your nuggets from a fast food joint. (And, duh, McDonald’s nuggets in waffle batter? Why wouldn’t you?)
