Start to finish: 20 minutes

Servings: 4

1 medium yellow onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

¼ cup white wine

1 cup heavy cream

Salt and ground black pepper

4 frozen waffles

•In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the mushrooms, onion and garlic, then saute until the mushrooms are browned and the pan is nearly dry, about 5 minutes.

•Place one toasted waffle on each serving plate. Top with a heap of warmed, shredded chicken, then spoon ample amounts of mushroom gravy over it.
