  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place chicken in even layer on rimmed baking sheet. Bake, flipping halfway through, until fully heated through, about about 12 to 14 minutes.
  2. While chicken is cooking, toast waffles in batches. Keep warm until ready to use.
  3. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Whisk eggs, salt and pepper together in a large bowl. Add eggs to skillet and scramble until just set, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Bend waffles in half and fill with eggs and chicken. Top with cheddar cheese and chives. Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup, or on the side and enjoy.

Tip: Substitute ranch dressing or hot honey for the maple syrup for a savory dish.

Tip: To form taco shells, defrost waffles and bend over a tinfoil log on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes. Allow to cool fully before turning shells right side up.
