While I can appreciate a heat-and-eat Instant Pot recipe, some meals just require a little bit more attention. You know what I’m talking about. That Southern comfort, home cooking that just feels like home. For me, chicken and waffles is the ultimate comfort food. Making hand-breaded chicken breast that are cooked to perfection in the air fryer. It’s easy, delicious, and these air fryer chicken and waffle sandwiches are sure to be enjoyed by the whole family.
What you’ll need to make this recipe
You’ll need a few ingredients and just a couple of tools to make these sandwiches. First, you’ll need your air fryer. Second, a waffle iron. The other ingredient you may not have on-hand would be the Morton’s Natures Seasoning. But you can find it most grocers or on Amazon.
Here’s what else you’ll need:
- 2 chicken breasts
- Morton’s nature’s seasoning
- pancake mix
- your favorite syrup!
That’s it! Super easy and delicious comfort food.
