  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Preheat oven to 400 °F.
  • To make maple-peach glaze: In a small pot, combine peach preserves and maple syrup. Heat on the stove for 5 minutes or until glaze begins to bubble around the sides and is well-blended. Stir frequently.
  • Heat an extra-large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Brown both sides of chicken tenders for 5 minutes. Wash hands after touching uncooked chicken.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Cover. Cook for 7–8 minutes. Heat to an internal temperature of 165 °F or higher for at least 15 seconds. If needed, turn tenders to prevent overbrowning.
  • Drizzle half of maple-peach glaze over chicken. Decrease heat to low. Cover. Cook chicken for 3 minutes or until glaze begins to bubble. Remove from heat.
  • Arrange frozen waffles in a single layer on sheet pan (18" x 26" x 1"). Bake for 8–10 minutes. Remove from the oven.
    For 25 servings, use 1 pan
    For 50 servings, use 2 pans
  • Serve 2 chicken tenders with 1 waffle and 2 Tbsp of maple-peach glaze. Serve immediately, or keep warm at 140 °F or higher.
