  • 1 package PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® ORGANICS Lightly Breaded Chicken Chunks (24 oz.)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped chives for garnish, optional
  • 1 Cup peach preserves
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 24 mini waffles


Preheat an oven or toaster oven to 425°F.

Place frozen chicken chunks in a single layer on a baking sheet and heat for 11 to 13 minutes.

For a crispier finish, turn halfway through heating time.

Let the chicken rest for 2-3 minutes before serving.

In a small saucepan, melt the peach preserves with the mustard, honey and lemon juice.

Set aside and keep warm.

Preheat a toaster oven to 425°F.  

In the toaster oven, heat the mini waffles for 3 to 4 minutes or until toasted and warm.

Dollop peach mustard sauce on each warm mini waffle, then place a fried chicken tender piece on top.

Drizzle more peach mustard sauce over the chicken tenders.

Garnish with chopped chives if desired.
