Yup. You read it correctly. Chicken and Waffle Cupcakes! I recently tried chicken and waffles and now “get” the allure of this Southern treat and wanted to play around with it a bit.
You will need:
- 3/4 cup room temperature unsalted sweet cream butter
- 3 Eggs room temperature
- 2 1/2 cup all-purpose Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 1/2 cup granulated Sugar
- 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 box of mini waffles
- 1 package of popcorn chicken
- 1 cup room temperature Butter
- 3 cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp maple extract
- 3-5 TBSP heavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 350.
Stir together flour, salt and baking powder.
Set to the side.
In another large bowl add your butter and sugar and mix until creamy and fluffy.
Add your maple and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
Add in flour mixture slowly and mix until just combined.
Set to the side.
Take your muffin pan and add your cupcake liners.
Fill each cup about 2/3 full.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let sit till cool.
In a large bowl or your stand mixer add your butter, powder sugar, maple extract, vanilla extract and heavy whipping cream
Mix until fluffy.
Frost each cupcake and set aside
Toast your waffles until they are a light crisp
Make a waffle and chicken sandwich by taking two waffle pieces and putting a piece of the popcorn chicken in between and holding them together using a toothpick
Place on top of the cupcake and drizzle with maple syrup.
