Scott's New Chicken Waffles

Was in the 'ole experimental mood tonight.

chicken breast, 1 cup, 1/3 inch dice, uncooked
scallions, 1/3 cup, thin sliced
porcini mushrooms, rehydrated, 4 oz., chopped
sharpish cheese, 4-6 oz., grated, not fine
soy flour, 1/2 cup
baking powder, 1 tsp., maybe a bit less
eggs, 3, beaten
sage, 1 tbs, fresh minced
marjoram, 1 tbs, fresh minced
water, 1-2 tbs.

Sift baking power with soy flour first, then mix all ingredients together. My batter was very thick, like a very thick muffin batter. Then cook in wafflebaker. Should be quite low in carbs. Most of the carbs would be in the soy flour which is not too high. I got about 6 5-inch waffles.

I've never made anything quite like this before. I really enjoyed it. It would be awesome with gravy over the top. Feel free to experiment with different herbs, garlic, cheese combos. I was unsure how the raw chicken would cook, but it cooked just fine!

Just wanted to share. Let me know if you have questions, thoughts, suggestions.

Before hand I made my sliced raw eggplant in the wafflebaker. Slice eggplant about 1/2 inch thick, dip in beaten egg, roll in parm. bake in wafflebaker. Wafflebaker will eventually settle into the slice as it cooks, no need to press hard. Crispy outside, creamy inside. M

Made a nice starter, and double use of the waffle baker, plus I added the extra beaten egg and extra parm to my chicken waffle batter. Am I clever, or what?

Will attach a photo.

This new blog of yours is very intriguing. The egg plant recipe sounds good!

What a great idea. I take it you used a waffle maker. That is something I have always wanted but always get talked out of one by the waffle hater or the wet blanket as I so fondly refer to him. I must try your recipe, do you think it would work with rice flour and in a skillet?

I sent this link to my wife, to see if she'll try making it. I'm a bit afraid but intrigued. It tasted good, right? She likes to cook. I like to grill (outdoors). I really like the sound of it though. Chicken Waffles. If this turns out good, it would be great to have people over for dinner and serve it, along with a really great bottle of wine.

I was just looking for a new technique for the eggplant in my garden! Yay for the waffle iron idea. I'm trying it this weekend. I'm also going to try your chicken waffles - with gravy! OH so clever you indeed are. Wonderful ideas!

At first I thought, "eww" but you know, it sounds pretty good! I agree that it looks like it needs gravy... :)
