This award- winning chicken and waffle sandwich marries waffles, healthy chicken strips and strawberries with a bit of chili sauce zip. It can be a breakfast or dinner and is versatile in that you can use store-bought waffles if you are in a hurry.
Cook bacon (Zabiha Halal Breakfast Chicken strips) on stove top until cooked through, as per package directions (about 5 minutes) and lightly browned. Set aside.
In a large bowl, stir flours, baking powder, sugar and salt together.
In a medium bowl, combine milk and vegetable oil with beaten egg yolk; stir in maple syrup, orange juice and zest. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir only until blended.
Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry and fold into batter.
Pour waffle batter onto hot waffle iron and cook waffles until lightly brown. You will have 8 waffles.
Once waffles are cool, lightly toast in toaster until desired crispness.
Sauce for chicken waffles: Mix strawberry jam, whipped cream and chili dip/spread together
Assemble: Spread strawberry jam mixture on the inside of one waffle, top breakfast chicken strips, then with sliced strawberries. Spread the jam mixture on the inside on another waffle. And place on top of sandwich (jam side down) . Repeat for remaining 3 sandwiches.
