Chicken Nugget & Waffle Sliders: Spicy, Cheesy, and Easy!

A Vintage Zest original
Printed from


Tyson Spicy Chicken Nuggets (approximately 40 per package)
Tyson Cheesy Chicken Nuggets (approximately 40 per package)
Nonstick spray
Mini Waffles OR regular sized waffles cut into four
Maple syrup
Cole slaw (I used storebought for convenience)


1. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

2. Bake the nuggets at 400F for 10 minutes.  I turned once during the 10 minutes for the maximum crunchy crust and to add my mini waffles!

3. To make the cheesy nugget sliders, top the bottom waffle with cole slaw.  Then, add a cheesy nugget and a waffle on top!

4. For the spicy nugget slider, there are a few ways to do this!  You can add use top either of the waffles with the maple syrup or pour it over the nugget.  I suggest that you either put it on the bottom waffle, to keep the nugget moist OR use it as a dipping sauce on the side.

Note:  If you pour it over the top for these pictures, your fingers will get sticky, but you might mind if you plan on serving these to the little ones!
