Special Tools


Instructions

For the waffles (makes 4 waffles in Mickey Waffle Maker):

  1. Beat eggs and liquid together.
  2. Add flour and mix well.
  3. Stir in melted butter and mix thoroughly.
  4. Ladle onto hot Gourmet Waffle Baker and remove when golden brown.

For the berry compote:

  1. Mix together jams in a small bowl.
  2. Set aside.

For the candied pecan bacon:

  1. Heat oven to 400.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on top. Place bacon on the cooling rack.
  3. Combine brown sugar and pecans in a small bowl. Spoon mixture over bacon, pushing down into bacon evenly.
  4. Bake 20-25 minutes until brown and crispy.

For the cereal crusted chicken:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°f.
  2. Grease a 9×12 baking pan.
  3. Season chicken breasts with salt on both sides (about 1/2 teaspoon each).
  4. Crush cereal into even pieces (I used my hands as I measured it out) and place into a shallow bowl large enough to lay chicken in.
  5. In another shallow bowl of equal size, pour milk in and beat the egg into it.
  6. Next, dip chicken breast into the milk, letting excess drip back into bowl, and then dip into the cereal on both sides. Place in baking dish and repeat with the rest of chicken. 
  7. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165°f.

Assembly:

  1. Place the waffle on a plate and top with jam.
  2. Lay the bacon pieces next and then place chicken on top.
  3. Cover with potato chips, powdered sugar, and sprinkles. Enjoy!
