These savory keto chicken, zucchini and cheese waffles are perfect for eating on the go. I plan on taking them with me on my upcoming road trip. It’s great to have keto food that is easy to pack and easy to eat when you are stuck in a car for hours.

This adventure with keto chicken, zucchini and cheese waffles all came about after I purchased this mini waffle maker. It’s so cute and aqua and I just love it! I love it for multiple reasons. The first, obviously is all because of the perfect size. The four inches makes for great portions, as well as easy to freeze. Also, waffles are fun. The kiddos like them for their non-keto breakfasts.

So with these keto chicken, zucchini and cheese waffles you want to get the shredded zucchini really dry. I grated two medium zucchinis with a cheese grater, then wrung out the zucchini in a clean flour sack towel. Then, I put it in the colander and set it in the refrigerator for a few hours, which really dried out the zucchini.

Originally, I was just going to make zucchini and cheese waffles, but I had a premonition of my significant other saying, “what meat are we having for dinner?” Of course, all the beef was still frozen and we are out of propane for the grill. But I nearly always have shredded chicken breast in the fridge, so I just figured I’d throw it into the batter and see what happened. Boy, I’m glad that I did it tastes so good!

I can’t use any nut flours (almond, coconut, etc.) due to allergies. Can these be made without it? If not, what is a replacement?

I haven't tried it without the almond flour, but I suspect it would work without it. You could try ground up pork rinds too.

It was great! I added a little red pepper flakes for a kick...delish!

Tried these today and really enjoyed them. Used Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning to replace the suggested onion and garlic (it has both). Didn’t have any chicken so cut up some bacon and cooked it some before adding to top of uncooked chaffle. Used my regular waffle iron and got 5 squares out of the recipe. It’s a keeper! Thanks.
