Savory Waffles with Roasted Chicken & Mustard Cream Sauce

March 6, 2014


Author Notes: What's better than a plate of hot waffles? A plate of waffles with half savory waffles, half sweet waffles. I topped the sweet waffles with an apple compote and walnuts, and the savory walnuts are this recipe below. The savory waffles are topped with a chicken and mushroom mixture coated in a creamy whole-grain mustard sauce. Savory waffle goodness.foxeslovelemons
