    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 8
    2 tbsp. Gustare Vita olive oil
    2 c. sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely shredded
    ¼ c. Culinary Tours bourbon barrel aged Vermont maple syrup, plus additional for serving
    4 Hy-Vee Kitchen fully cooked hand-breaded savory chicken strips, chopped
    1 c. Hy-Vee shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    ⅓ c. green onions, sliced
    2 (16-oz. each) cans Hy-Vee refrigerated homestyle flaky jumbo biscuits, (8-ct. each)

    Things To Grab

    • Large nonstick skillet
    • Large bowl
    • Rolling pin
    • Standard-size waffle iron
    • Hy-Vee nonstick spray
    • Meat thermometer


    1. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes and 1/4 cup maple syrup. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Cool slightly; transfer to a large bowl. Add chicken strips, cheese, and green onions; toss to combine. 

    2. Roll out each refrigerated biscuit to a 4-inch round. Mound chicken mixture in center of 8 biscuit rounds. Place remaining biscuit rounds on top. Pinch edges to seal; fold pinched edges under each biscuit.

    3. Preheat a standard-size waffle iron on medium setting according to manufacturer's directions. Spray top and bottom of waffle grids with nonstick spray. Place 2 filled biscuits in waffle iron, diagonally opposite each other. Close lid, pressing down firmly. Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until filled waffles are golden brown and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Remove from waffle iron. Repeat baking remaining filled biscuits. Serve with additional maple syrup, if desired.
