Waffle Cone Fried Chicken Tenders
Waffle Cone Fried Chicken Tenders | This crunchy fair like dish will have everyone in your family begging for more. These Waffle Cone Fried Chicken Tenders are juicy on the inside and covered with a delicious layer of crunchy waffle cones! Waffles and fried chicken…. it’s all the rage and is considered a “specialty” item. I say “make your own!” This totally reminds me of fair food. The crushed waffle cone coating tastes as good as it sounds. With a hint of sweet. Your kitchen will smell like an ice cream parlor and we all know how much we love that sweet smell of fresh waffle cones baking in the oven!
Serve these chicken tenders with a variety of dips. I served mine with a honey mustard dip and ranch but the one dip that really drove home the waffle cone flavor was the maple syrup. The combo of the savory chicken and syrup was the bomb!
I didn’t only dip the chicken tenders in smashed waffle cones I also smothered them in a waffle batter. So no matter what, you are guaranteed to taste waffles! So….I did a little research and found that most of the time when a waffle cone and fried chicken are combined it’s by placing the chicken in a waffle cone! With this recipe you can serve your family or guests something they’ve never had! Plus, it’s SUPER easy! How fun would it be to make this for a carnival themed party?
Here’s a fun carnival party I put together.
Store bought waffle cones!
Crush the cones for a slightly sweet taste. Your house will smell like your walking the carnival midway!
The pancake/waffle mix I used.
The waffle batter has a mixture of spices.
Set yourself up with a dipping station. First the batter and then the crunchy waffle coating.
Dip the chicken in the batter.

This looks so delicious! I love the party!
Can this be cooked in air-frier? Yell! I know, just asking!
Sure Betty! That’s a great idea.
I just made this yesterday for a chicken and waffles party at my quilt guild and it was wonderful. I even put a few in a waffle cone and people ate them up. I offered honey and mustard for a dip as well as pancake syrup. They looked exactly the picture and tasted slightly sweet of the waffle cones. This one is a keeper and great for parties!
Thanks Elizabeth! I agree these Waffle Cone Fried Chicken Tenders are the bomb!
Sounds good. Could you bake entirely instead of fry and bake?
Sure, you could do that Carol.
