How to Make Chicken Waffle Sliders:
Prepare the chicken. Cut each chicken breast into 3 even pieces. Season chicken with paprika. To one ziplock bag, add 1 cup flour in one bag. Add 1/2 cup flour, pancake mix, paprika, salt, and black pepper in the second bag. In a bowl, combine buttermilk and eggs. Whisk together.
Fry the chicken. Heat a skillet to medium heat and cover the bottom of the pan with olive oil. Place the chicken in a flour-only bag and coat it well. Coat the chicken with the egg mixture, then the flour and pancake mixture. Cook chicken for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, then set to side.
Make the honey sauce. Heat a cooking pan to medium-low and add butter. Once the butter melts, add minced garlic. Cook for 1 minute, then add soy sauce, brown sugar, and honey. Add cornstarch, balsamic vinegar, red pepper flakes, and flour. Stir until it binds and remove from heat.
Pour honey sauce over chicken. Add chicken to a large bowl and pour honey sauce over the cooked chicken. Set to the side.
Make the waffles. Add pancake mix, egg yolks, vanilla extract, nutmeg, ground cinnamon, buttermilk, and milk in a bowl. Whisk together. Do not over-blend. Set the mixer to medium speed and beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the pancake mixture.
Assemble. Prepare the waffles as instructed by your Belgium waffle maker. Removing the waffle from the waffle iron can get a little tricky so you will have to handle with care. Once cooked, place the chicken between two waffle triangles.
