Paleo | Bacon Waffle Chicken Sandwiches

Anyone else have blogs they follow that come up with such creative titles…. yea, that’s not me. Every title I write, I think about those people. HA, to my defense, recipe posts are harder to get creative with.  Also, I am counting down the days until GRADUATION, and the end of this semester. I cannot wait to get a break and start making some money again. As awesome as internships are, the experience and learning does not buy you gas for your car… I am so thankful that I will be done with this part of my life and start the next chapter, whatever that will be.  On the other hand, these full weeks, with one day off (if I am lucky), have made me realize I am LAZIER than I thought…school, work, and internship is kicking my butt. Lazy might not be the right word, but right now it fits. Or fear… fear about the future.  Anyone else?!

anyway, back to food.  This sandwich was super easy to make, especially if you have the chicken cooked in advance.  Easy is all I can seem to handle right now. :)

Ingredients:

Waffles- Makes 4-6 waffles depending on size (so 2-3 total sandwiches)

  • 2 C. Almond Flour
  • 1/2 t. Baking Soda
  • 1/4 t. Garlic Powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 Eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 C. Almond Milk
  • 3 or more pieces of bacon

Chicken

  • 2-3 Chicken Breasts
  • Chicken Broth
  • Half an onion, chopped
  • Seasoning– I used garlic and onion powder
  • Salt and Pepper

Avocado Spread

  • 1-2 Avocado
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 T. Maple Syrup
  • Pepper

Directions:

  1. Cook your bacon for the waffles and set aside.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for the waffles in a small bowl, starting with the whisked eggs and adding everything else in after.
  3. Heat up your waffle maker, and make your waffles. Set aside.
  4. Cook chicken on the stove with your broth and onions. Cook through and then shred chicken.
  5. While the chicken is cooking, make your spread in a small bowl.  Add all ingredients and mix well.
  6. Prepare the sandwich! EAT

For some reason this just screams a weekend lunch to me, one in the summer… on a beach!  Now, I am just day dreaming…

I had one of those moments today where I was looking at pictures from our vacation in Grand Cayman back in May, and felt a HUGE urge to start planning another trip to somewhere tropical and breezy with warm, clear water and fishies.  You guys ever have that memory slap to the face while looking at pictures?  It is one of my favorite things about keeping pictures.  I love them in the moment, but they are even more fun to look at months or even years later.

Wow, how was that for random thoughts…
