Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded 1/2 inch thick, quartered
  • 12 cup vinegar and oil Italian salad dressing
  • 3 cups Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns, more if needed
  • 8 pecan waffles, toasted and quartered
  • 1 12 cups buttery maple syrup, warmed


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Line 1-2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Place potatoes into one shallow dish. Pour dressing into another.
  2. Pound breasts until evenly a 1/2 inch thick, then cut each into four pieces.
  3. Dip each piece into dressing, then into potatoes pressing on and coating well, and place onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes until done.
  4. While the chicken is baking, toast the waffles until crispy and golden, cut each into quarters and warm the maple syrup in a saucepan on low.
  5. Time to bop! Place a piece of chicken on each waffle square, drizzle with lots of warm maple syrup, top each with another waffle square and enjoy! Serve with more maple syrup for dipping, a side of Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes with Onions or Shredded Hash Browns, and Root Beer Floats at your own private hop! And don't forget to put a lucky penny in your loafers! ;).
