This picture looks like a waffle, but looks can be deceiving. It’s actually a biscuit. Today’s recipe comes from Pillsbury. It was an entry from Corvilia Carrington Thykkuttahil in Pillsbury’s 2006 Bake Off Contest.For the sandwich, she uses Grand’s Flaky Layer Biscuits cooked in a waffle maker. I just recently bought a bunch of the Grands biscuits because our Albertson’s had a great sale on them. I remembered this recipe that I had printed off a while ago and thought it would be another great way to use my biscuits. I was surprised at how well this worked. I love this whole idea.
This sandwich was good. However, I do think there was to much curry in the chicken salad. The curry took over the salad and you couldn’t really taste the other ingredients. I’d reduce the curry to 1/2 tsp next time. You could always use this idea and fill it with a favorite chicken salad recipe of you own. I think it would taste wonderful with a chicken salad that included some diced apples and pecan, maybe even sugared pecans. Either way, we need to try to cook your biscuits in your waffle maker.
I used a Belgian waffle maker that had 2 (approximately 4 inch waffles) and it worked perfectly. For me this also made more salad that needed for the 4 sandwiches. I would say you could actually get 6 sandwiches out of the salad. They are also VERY filling.
- 1 (16.3 oz) tube Pillsbury® Grands!® Butter Tastin'® Flaky Layers refrigerated biscuits (I used the buttermilk flaky layers)
- 3 cups cubed cooked chicken (about 1 lb)
- ½ cup finely chopped, peeled jicama (I didn't add this, didn't have any)
- ½ cup finely chopped celery
- ½ cup chopped cashews
- ⅓ cup mayonnaise or salad dressing (I used mayo)
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard (I used honey dijon)
- 1 tsp curry powder (I'd use ½ tsp, you can always add more if you think you need it after you taste it)
- 1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free lemon burst yogurt
- Salt and pepper, if desired
- In large bowl, mix chicken, jicama, celery and cashews. In small bowl, mix mayonnaise, mustard, curry powder and yogurt. Pour mayonnaise mixture over chicken mixture; gently toss to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Heat Belgian or regular waffle maker (to make 2 or 4 waffle sections at a time). Separate dough into 8 biscuits; press or roll each into 4-inch round. Depending on size of waffle maker, place 2 to 4 biscuit rounds at a time in hot waffle maker. Bake 2 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 to 2 minutes.
- Spoon and spread 1 cup chicken mixture onto each of 4 waffles; top with remaining waffles. Cut sandwiches in half; place 2 halves on each individual plate. Makes 4.
