Gluten-Free Chicken n’ Waffles with Spicy Maple Butter Syrup

Who doesn’t want Chicken n’ Waffles without the guilt? We took this delicious breakfast item and turned it into an all gluten free option! We bumped up the protein again with our Hearthy Collagen and replaced regular AP flour with our Hearthy GF AP Flour. Our waffles came out fluffy and light with nice vanilla and a hint of coconut flavor in the background. 

GF Chicken n’ Waffles with Spicy Maple Butter Syrup

Air Fryer Chicken Ingredients

1 pound boneless chicken tenders

1 cup of Almond or Oat milk with 1 tsp of Salt and ½ tsp pepper

Seasoned Flour coating for Chicken

½ cup Hearthy AP GF Flour or Hearthy Red Lentil Flour
1 cup Milk Alternative or Milk

½ tsp Himalayan Salt

½ tsp Paprika

½  tsp Garlic Powder

¼ tsp Onion Salt

¼ tsp thyme

¼ tsp Turmeric

⅛ tsp Black Pepper

⅛ tsp Cayenne Pepper

In a bowl, add one cup of milk or milk alternative with salt n’ pepper, stir. Place boneless chicken tenders to soak. This can be done a day ahead of time, if not soak chicken for at least an hour in the refrigerator.

Preheat the airfryer, using the air fry setting. 

To prepare flour coating for chicken, in a shallow bowl add Hearthy AP GF flour and all the spices. Whisk together. Remove soaked chicken tenders one by one and coat in flour mixture. Once all tenders have been coated, place in a preheated Airfryer. Optional, is to lightly spray the top of the chicken with oil. Our air fryer had a 17 minute setting. At the halfway mark check the temp of chicken. We are looking for 165 degrees. Once chicken is cooked, it’s ready to be plated on top of waffles and drizzling with spicy maple buttery syrup!
