thick slices deli chicken
thin slices sourdough bread
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and sriracha until well combined. Set aside.
Heat up waffle iron. If your iron has adjustable heat settings, set the temperature to medium high.
Brush the chicken slices with the mayo and sriracha mixture to lightly coat.
Brush one side of each slice of bread with the olive oil.
Place one slice of bread, oil side down, on the waffle iron. Top with one slice of cheese, two slices of chicken, and a second slice of bread, oil side up. Close the waffle iron as best you can. If it won’t close all the way, hold it together while the sandwich cooks, about 3 minutes.
Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Serve hot with the extra sriracha mayo for dipping.
- Don't overfill your sandwiches or you won't be able to close your waffle iron.
- Add extra sriracha to the mayonnaise if you like things extra spicy.
More About This Recipe
- These chicken sandwiches with sriracha mayo are made even better, thanks to the trusty waffle iron.
Would it be totally rude to start this recipe with a rather unladylike burp? Because guys, I can’t help it. I just downed two sandwiches that I cooked in my waffle iron.
Two sandwiches that I cooked in my waffle iron that were full of chicken.
Two sandwiches that I cooked in my waffle iron that were full of chicken and cheese.
Two sandwiches that I coo...wait. Is this getting annoying? Mah bad.
How about I just share these cheesy, spicy, chicken-y waffle iron sandwiches with you now so you can get to shoving them in your face hole?
First things first: Gather up the goodies. That’s sourdough bread, thick sliced deli chicken, creamy Havarti cheese slices, and a mixture of mayo and sriracha. You’ll also need some olive oil, but I forgot to photograph that.
Heat yo’ waffle iron. If it has different temperature settings, go for high heat. If it does not (like mine), just deal. No biggie.
Brush some olive oil on your bread slices, like so.
Now grab that mayo sriracha mixture and brush some of it over your chicken slices. Then kiss it. Because I said so and you know you want to.
Before I show you this next photo, you must promise not to judge me for all of the waffle bits stuck to my waffle iron. Cleaning small appliances is my least favorite chore. Obviously.
Place one slice of bread, oil side down, on the waffle iron. Add one slice of cheese, top that with two slices of chicken, and then another slice of cheese. I know you’ll want to add more chicken, because two slices doesn’t seem like enough. But if you do that, your waffle iron won’t close and the sky will fall on us all. So don’t do that, capiche? I’m sorry. I’ll never say capiche again.
Don’t forget to add that second slice of bread, oil side up, to top of your sandwich. Now, slam that sucker closed. Or just gently press your waffle iron closed. Whatever floats your boat.
Cook, cook, cook until you feel like stopping or about three minutes. Either one.
Now, drool over the kitchen. I know, it’s gross, but you won’t be able to help it.
If you’re feeling wild and crazy, dip that sandwich in the leftover mayo-sriracha. It’s a really good idea, but I’m done bossing you around, so you do want you want, as long as what you want is what I said. Capi ... never mind.
Make good choices, friends!

Have you ever had an idea so profoundly obvious that you wondered how you never thought of it in all of the four years that you’ve been blogging? Oh, was that just me? Because I just thought of chicken and waffle sandwiches like two weeks ago. How is that? Because as soon as I thought of it I realized that I should have thought of it, I don’t know, four years ago!
Now I’ll make a confession: I’ve never actually eaten chicken and waffles. I mean, I know that anything with fried chicken seems quintessentially Southern, but chicken and waffles as a combination really aren’t. Nope, chicken and waffles as we know them actually originated in Harlem. And I didn’t even know such a combination existed until like six or seven years ago, when I saw a television show that referenced Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles, perhaps the most infamous place to procure said meal.
It seems that these days chicken and waffles are pretty easy to find on brunch menus pretty much everywhere, but I’ve never ordered them and I’ve never made them either. Until now. For some reason I’ve been mildly obsessed with chicken sandwiches lately (look for a chicken biscuit sandwich and a Chick-fil-a style chicken sandwich coming up soon). And this gives me a new chicken sandwich to be obsessed with.
To give this a little bit more of a Southern twist, I added in some pimento cheese because pimento cheese waffles? Come. On. Only I found out from an email that a reader sent me that pimento cheese really isn’t Southern either, but let’s all just pretend that I didn’t type that. Pimento cheese is an iconic Southern food and pimento cheese waffles are winning.
Crusty with cheese around the edges, drizzled with hot sauce and maple syrup, and topped with dill pickles, this is pretty much a dream sandwich. And if you don’t have a waffle iron, I promise that I won’t judge you for using Eggo’s….if you want to include the pimento cheese just spread a little on the waffles.
Chicken Waffle with Maple Sriracha Aïoli

Here’s a recipe I only decided to document about half way through the process. I realized I was making something more incredible than usual, and I was only able to grab a couple pictures of my delicious concoction before I scarfed it all up. Chicken Waffles. With Maple Sriracha Aioli. For one. Just let that sink in for a moment.
Since my boyfriend recently left for a month to go work nights in a power plant, I’ve been looking for easy ways to cook for myself, and myself alone. And I’ve been oddly craving chicken waffles for several days now, so I thought it was immensely appropriate to find the perfect recipe for one.
When it comes to the ingredients for your aioli, be sure to use some REAL maple syrup, not some imitation or sugar free imposter.
For the aioli, I’ll admit here I cheated, but just a little! Aioli, for those who don’t know, is essentially just a fancy mayonnaise. The real difference being the process in which each recipe is made – where mayo is more of an emulsion and aioli starts with a mortar and pestle. Aioli is also more traditionally served in French cuisine as a dip, rather than a spread. If you really want to make an authentic aioli, all you really need is garlic, egg yolk, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, olive oil, and vegetable oil, and a good recipe. To skip the hard parts of making an aioli, however, you can just use 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise as a base. So really, this is more of a “fakeoli.” Just combine the aioli ingredients together and add the Sriracha to your spiciness liking.
Pound the chicken breast to approximately ½ inch – ¾ inch in thickness, to quicken the cooking process, especially if it’s a particularly thick chicken breast. Cover with whatever breading you choose, then pop into the oven at 375*F (or whatever temp the recipe you are using calls for).
When it comes to breading the chicken, feel free to use your favorite breading recipe! For mine, I used Shake ‘n’ Bake Chicken – for no other reason that it’s the fastest thing I could find in my cabinets and I was super hungry, so no time for homemade breading! If you frequently visit my blog, you’ll know I’m very much about doing everything from scratch as often as I can (as long as it’s affordable!) so don’t worry, I feel the same twinge of guilt of not doing it the ‘proper’ way. But honestly, if you’re like me and on your own for the next month, you aren’t really going to care if your chicken’s breading is homemade or not, am I right?
Cover with whatever breading you choose, then pop into the oven at 375*F (or whatever temp the recipe you are using calls for). Regardless of what you pour over the top of this chicken waffle, you will end your meal with a happy belly.
