BBQ Chicken Waffle Fries

This is one of those dishes that sounds so wrong but tastes so right! Trust me—barbecue chicken leftovers are fantastic with the fries. We like it with lettuce, tomato and pickle, but you can add almost any toppings you like. —Janet Telleen, Russell, Iowa

    This was fantastic! I grilled BBQ chicken on the grill and then pulled the chicken. I bought 3 large Chick-fil-a waffle fries. In a cast iron skillet, I made 3 layers of fries, chicken, cheese, and light onion. Since the fries were already cooked, I cooked everything for 10 minutes at 425, putting it on broil for the last couple minutes to get that cheese bubbly. Put the cold toppings in separate bowls so people could add what they wanted. It was a HUGE hit! A squirt bottle of BBQ sauce (old fashioned diner ketchup squirt bottle) helps with the dryness.

    My kids and husband love this! I bought two large chicken breasts. covered with barbecue sauce, and baked until done (about 25 minutes). Then I shredded it. After baking the fries I put it in a 9x13 dish and covered with the chicken, pickles, barbecue sauce and cheese. I baked it for about 10 more minutes. We wished there was more!

    Perfect way to use the leftovers from a slow cooker full of BBQ chicken.
