12 frozen chicken or meatless chicken nuggets (with under 200 calories per 4-nugget serving)

12 frozen mini waffles (like the kinds by Eggo and Kodiak)

1/4 cup natural sugar-free pancake syrup (like the kinds by ChocZero and Lakanto)


Cook chicken nuggets until crispy and heated through, in an oven, air fryer, or microwave. (See package for cook times and temperatures.)

Toast waffles. Separate into individual pieces.

Place a nugget over each waffle. Secure with toothpicks. Serve topped with syrup, 1 tsp. each.
