Herb Crusted Paleo Chicken and Waffles with Rosemary Infused Maple Syrup
I have never been more excited for a recipe as I was to recreate this little number. Who doesn’t want some chicken and waffles that are Paleo perfect?
BAM. BAM. BAM is all I can say.
Being a minimalist I personally do not see myself owning a waffle iron. Having Kitchfix take care of the waffle part is one of my life nirvana moments and what makes this recipe easy for anytime of day.
I met the fine folks at Kitchfix at a trade show where they were serving chicken and waffles. I have wanted to recreate this recipe with a twist since our meeting over a year ago, but at the time I was on the road so recipe creating was not so easy for me. Now that I am back living in CA only two weeks and you can be sure this was on the top of my list. I have no words to describe how excited I am to finally make this delicious dish with a Chef V twist and share it with you all. You have to make this. Cassava flour is key to the crunch factor too.

Put four waffles in the oven for 10 minutes turning half way.
Once all are cooked assembly to YUM starts - beginning with the waffles - start to stack with the waffle, chicken, waffle, chicken approach.
Remove rosemary stalks from stove and pour warm infused rosemary syrup directly on the stack. You have the option of buttering the waffle first adding syrup placing chicken on tip and repeat finishing off with a final syrup pour over entire stack.
This meal is great anytime of day and Otto’s cassava flour adds a crunch that will have you hooked (code paleoboss10 saves).
Feel free to play with spices and even without. You can’t go wrong and the sky is the limit.
