Chipotle Chicken and Waffled Fries with Cilantro Lime Gravy
 Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato Fries are made into a cheesy  waffle and topped with a baked Chipotle Seasoned Chicken Tender, buried in Cilantro Lime Gravy. Chipotle Chicken and Waffles are a quick and easy dinner to put on your table that will make your family feel like you’ve treated them to dinner out!
Sometimes I really can get in a rut when it comes to dinner and usually with a good reason: I’m super busy all the time. I am on the go from the moment I wake up until the moment I lie down to go to sleep at night. This sometimes makes for some pretty boring dinners on work nights. Alexia Sweet Potato Fries can help make my weeknights so much easier! The high quality and versatility of the Alexia products not only give me peace of mind but allow me to go outside of the box to create recipes that are tasty!

Chipotle Chicken and Waffled Fries with Cilantro Lime Gravy
I was racking my brain what I wanted to make for dinner on my way home one evening and decided to make a pit-stop at Walmart to grab something that would be quick to put together. I saw the Alexia product and the Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato Fries and became inspired with the recipe I am sharing with you today! I went with a “gravy” made with nonfat Greek yogurt, a small amount of honey and fresh cilantro. The perfect cooling match for the spicy fries and chicken tenders. (I also came home with a bag of onion rings and regular sweet potato fries!)

  • For the waffles:
  • 1/2 bag Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato Fries, thawed
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • For the chicken:
  • 1 lb chicken tenders, each tender cut in half
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup panko
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup non fat Greek yogurt

  3. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mixture, then dip in breadcrumb mixture, turning to coat. Place on baking stone or cookie sheet. (If using cookie sheet, be sure to spray with non-stick cooking spray first). Spray top of chicken pieces with cooking spray.
  4. Bake chicken at 425 for 10 minutes. Flip pieces over and bake 3-4 minutes more.
