Last month, I was invited to meet with U.S. Olympic legends and athlete hopefuls representing Team USA in New York City to help kick-off the 100 day countdown to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
I know, who EVER thought a dork like me would EVER be able to say that, out loud, RIGHT?!?
Aaaaaanyway, one of my favorite activities from this awesome event was participating in helping to create an absolutely awesome brunch, in my pretend kitchen at The Culinary Loft, where I was given the choice of cooking stations.
They had me at chicken and waffles, here's how it ALL went down in 3 easy-peasy steps:
3 tablespoons baking mix
2 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 3 pieces
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 Kellogg's Eggo Minis Homestyle waffles
1 tablespoon honey
Chopped fresh chives (optional)
DIRECTIONS (re-printed here with the permission of Kellogg's):
1. In shallow dish stir together baking mix and pepper. Dip chicken pieces in milk. Roll in baking mix mixture, lightly coating chicken pieces on all sides. In small nonstick skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken pieces. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until browned and chicken is no longer pink, turning as necessary to brown on all sides.
2. Meanwhile, prepare Kellogg's Eggo Minis Homestyle waffles according to package directions.
3. Top each waffle with chicken piece. Drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with chives (if desired).
These absolutely delicious tapas-style bites would make an AWESOME holiday appetizer, that maybe even your very pickiest almost-teen (ahem, Hope) will like, too.
