Do you put syrup on Chicken and Waffles
The simple answer is if you want. I always put syrup on my chicken and waffles. I know some people who do not like to put it on the slider. When it comes to putting the syrup on the slider, sometimes I put it directly on the waffle, sometimes I add it onto the chicken. The biggest thing to remember is to not add too much.

Can You Freeze Chicken and Waffles
While technically you can freeze anything, I do not recommend freezing chicken and waffles.
