  1. This post and recipe for the Chicken Chaffle is somehow inspiring me to create an Egg Foo Young-esque chaffle…….MIND BLOWN!!!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hey Natalie! I actually didn’t know those were called Foo Young Esque! Good to know that they work well as a Chaffle and might have to look into myself!

  2. Is that cooked or raw chicken?

  3. hi this looks amazing! is the cauliflower rice already cooked/steamed, or are you using it raw? thanks – 🙂

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hey Laura! The cauliflower is actually frozen when mixed and the chicken is from thaw. Let us know if there’s any other questions!
