Chicken & Waffle Cupcakes
Yup! You read that right. Chicken and waffle cupcakes. They actually exist. This crowd favorite has crossed from a main dish to dessert and who knows where it will go next. This will quickly become your new go-to party dish and it will not disappoint. Normally this is quite a filling main meal but now having switched to a small cupcake size you might have some better portion control. Nope. Wait. That was a lie. You will continue to have a tough time portion controlling yourself with this delicious and addictive dessert. I’m sorry. Someone had to be honest with you.
