  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spread chicken nuggets out on a baking sheet.
  2. Bake nuggets in the preheated oven until hot and crispy, 11 to 13 minutes.
  3. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions and lightly coat with cooking spray.
  4. Whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, black pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Whisk buttermilk, oil, and eggs together in another bowl. Pour buttermilk mixture into flour mixture and stir until batter is just-combined.
  5. Place 1 chicken nugget in the center of each waffle section on the waffle iron. Cover each nugget with about 1 tablespoon of batter, close the waffle iron, and cook until golden and crisp, about 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining nuggets and batter.

I love the savory waffle recipe. It's very tasty. If you think covering a chicken nugget in it is too outrageous just eat it as a waffle! But pretty good with a chicken nugget inside too!

Meh, it is what it is. In my case, the oven was broken; and this seemed like a cool idea. It still seems like a cool idea. But in this case, the sum is not greater than the parts.
