Preheat oven to 425°. Line a large rimmed baking pan with foil; place bacon in a single layer in prepared pan. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until crisp; drain bacon on paper towels. Meanwhile, place waffles in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake waffles for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown; cool on wire rack.
Place oven rack 6 in. from heat. Preheat broiler to HIGH. Chop bacon into bite-size pieces; set aside. Cut each waffle into 4 wedges; set aside. Toss chicken bites in 2 Tbsp. buffalo sauce in a medium bowl.
To assemble, spread waffle pieces in a clean large rimmed baking pan. Top with shredded cheese and chicken mixture. Broil for 4 to 6 minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken reaches 165°.
To serve, top with bacon, dollops of sour cream and chives. Drizzle with 3 Tbsp. syrup and remaining 2 Tbsp. buffalo sauce. Serve with additional maple syrup, if desired.
