My little girl is a busy little bee! Phew! I never realize that more than when she's home with me for long bouts of time (like during the summer.) Of course, I do all I can to fuel her play, creativity, and mind. One way that I do this is by keeping her little tummy full and satisfied with wholesome things that I approve of.
Recently she's found her love of chicken nuggets, so today I thought I'd try my hand at creating a perfect little bite-sized slider for an old classic that most of us adults know and love; chicken and waffles! It's a great little play on sweet and savory that almost any kid or adult will love.
I decided to start my sliders with some whole wheat mini waffles that I loaded up with Tyson® Chicken Nuggets. Kids love them because they taste great and are fun to eat. Moms (like me) love them because they’re made with 100% all natural ingredients and white meat from chicken raised with no added steroids or hormones!
While my little one isn't a big fan of spice, I know that a lot of kids out there are. Especially those that are older or adults who never really grew up. Hah! So, I've paired these sliders with a sweet and spicy buffalo maple syrup. What?! I know! It's every bit as amazing as it sounds too; perfect for dipping or drizzling. To lighten this aspect up, I used a sugar-free syrup but feel free to use whatever kind makes your mouth happy.
State Fair® is another brand that fuels kids’ play because it too offers a good source of protein. State Fair® Corn Dogs are loved by kids with that familiar sweet and savory combination, while moms love that they are 100% Beef.
