This recipe combines ingredients in a surprising delicious way. As a waffle fan, I’m always looking for different ways to make them, experimenting with flavors and textures. That's why I love using Pillsbury™ dough; I know the rolls or biscuits will fit perfectly in my waffle iron and cook up well, every time. In fact, I've been playing with a few of the different Pillsbury™ products and now have some favorites, both sweet and savory. I've made round, square, rectangle and more “abstract-shaped” waffles, but waffles that are perfectly symmetrical, when plated, make for a more elegant-looking dish.
Pairing chicken with waffles isn’t new, but this recipe with honey and cinnamon makes the combination extra special. For starters, the honey tenderizes the chicken, giving it a particularly rica texture. On the other hand, I like the sweetness it adds that, together with the cayenne pepper, brings the overall flavor to a new dimension. If you don’t like heat, don't add the pepper, or swap it out and add another spice of your choice.
I prefer to use chicken breasts but you may, of course, use any cut of chicken, keeping in mind that you may have to adjust the baking time.
