Author: Betsy Life
  • For the waffles
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ cups warm milk
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted

  • 2 pre-cooked crispy chicken strips, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup arugula
  • ½ cup fontina cheese
  1. To make the waffles
  2. Preheat waffle iron
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together milk, butter, and eggs.
  5. Stir wet ingredients into flour mixture until fully combined.
  6. Spoon batter into waffle iron and cook until done (mine has an indicator light that says when the waffle is ready). Repeat with remaining batter.
  7. To make the sandwich
  8. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Butter the outside of two waffle halves.
  9. Place one half, butter side down in the hot skillet. Top with ½ of the cheese, chicken, arugula and remaining cheese. Top with other waffle half.
