Nabb1: Why should the South suck it? We don't have a dog in this fight. Take it up with New York, home of every other bastardized ethnic cuisine in this country.


Lawrenceburg, TN: collards, one serving large enough to feed two, $1.50

New York, NY: braised greens, approximately 3 oz., $8.00

Eggs and waffles are good. Why wait till it's a chicken.
 
2013-02-15 02:48:12 PM
Step one - butter the waffle.
Step two - rip up a few chunks of fried chicken
Step three - place chicken on waffle like it was a thick fluffy soft taco shell
Step four - drizzle with syrup & hot sauce
Step five - eat the hell out of chicken & waffles

Sweet, salty, spicy, chewy, crunchy, and meaty all at once.

Always assumed it was a west coast thing.  Don't need any chicken on my waffle, just don't try to give me any corn syrup and pretend it came from a maple tree.  I want reduced tree sap only on my breakfast, thank you.

You can tell that was written by a moron.  Why would you wring a dead chicken's neck anyway?

Anyway, chicken was never breakfast food on my family's farm.  It was usually eggs, toast and ham or bacon.  That was second breakfast, after chores, anyway.  Bowl of oatmeal or cereal before chores.

SilentStrider: That stuff isn't chicken and waffles. Cicken and waffles is chicken in gravy ladled over waffles. Suck it south. Pennsylvania Dutch ftw.


Growing up in NEPA I was totally oblivious to the concept of chicken and waffles. It wasn't until I became friends with a couple from Altoona that I heard about it, and I think they were a little offended by my reaction of total revulsion when they told me about it. Butter, syrup, fruit, nuts, powdered sugar, or ice cream are about the only things that should ever go on waffles. Not chicken slop.

I had a side of collards with Korean tacos the other day.

That's the first time I'd ever heard of Chicken and Waffles (and I only watched it just last year). I thought it was a joke for the movie. I didn't realize it was a thing.

You have to kill it before you wring it's neck or else PETA will be all up in your ass.

Seriously. The "Sunday bird" was what you had for dinner. Breakfast was eggs, bacon/sausage, biscuits, and maybe grits.

Just a typo.  Should be "ring it's neck".  Little-known fact:  A freshly-killed chicken can be rung like a bell, and was once used for calling farmhands back from the fields for brunch.

You can't get chicken and waffles in Atlanta, unless you combine two orders at Waffle House. I never heard of it until I went to Chicago.

I understand it's from Houston, originally, and made its way to LA and thence elsewhere in Yankeeland. So Southern (to the extent that Texas is the South and not the West), but not widespread.

Came to the thread to find where the hell this came from. My mom has been making that since I was kid and I've always loved it. PA Dutch explains it perfectly; my parents are from Lewistown.

I have never been to a Waffle House, but I imaging you can get this there.

Chicken and waffles may seem crazy, until you have it.  I thought it was an insane idea until I did.

ricewater_stool: I love fried chicken and I love waffles but eating them together is gross.


FrancoFile: So I'm confused.  Is there syrup and butter involved in this?  Are they poured over the waffles, the chicken, or both?


FrancoFile: But maple-butter chicken? That's worse than a McGriddle!!


Don't knock it until you've tried it.  It really isn't bad.  In fact, if the waffles are nice and tall and crisp it is sublime.  People put all manner of sweet and flavored sauces and ingredients with chicken all over the world.  Believe it or not: it can work.

A Yankee transplant friend of mine took me to a "soul food" place in Macon the first day I moved there. I'm from Tennessee, and I told him it was just "food."

I've always understood this to be the case as well.  It evolved from Southern cuisine, but not actually in the South (perhaps Harlem, if I am not mistaken).  I hadn't heard of it until I went to New York a number of years ago, or at least, I hadn't seen it on any menus.


They used to serve it at Cobalt here in town.  What was that in, the Wyndam?  They used real maple syrup.  Yum.  My buddy and I made it a weekly ritual.

I believe they have chicken and waffles at that hoity toity place whose name escapes me... the place next to reginellis in the condos... on the 900 block of poydras.  I keep meaning to go.

brewthunda: ricewater_stool: I love fried chicken and I love waffles but eating them together is gross.

Seriously - it's totally random.  Like serving hot dogs and candy canes together or fish and donuts.


Or bagels and lox,

for the Jews, of course.

BAMFinator: I have never been to a Waffle House, but I imaging you can get this there


Nope. Waffle House doesn't serve fried chicken. You could probably talk them into selling you a grilled chicken breast to go with your waffle, but they'd look at you funny.

/Pecan waffle with a side of sausage, ftw.
 
2013-02-15 03:23:51 PM
The only place I've ever heard of this is while travelling through Georgia and Florida.  I was too hung up on the biscuits and gravy or shrimp and grits to bother with this nonsense, though.

You people don't need to freak out over it. It's not that weird. It's a sweet a savory combination. It's no different than pork chops and applesauce or cheese on your apple pie.

Yeah, I forgot about that. But it's transplant food, very recent, and only available at Gladys' and a few high-end joints.

Nabb1: It's a recent development. I've seen it here and there the past few years, but I don't recall ever seeing it before recently.


Nabb1, There was a little diner joint on Tulane Ave that has been there forever. Anita's Grill. They served fried chicken and waffles before it got hip and trendy. I worked 7p-7a at Charity ER for twenty years and used to eat at any late night spot I could find. I hear Big Momma's on Crowder Blvd is the best place for the dish these days.
 
2013-02-15 03:30:17 PM
I've only consumed this dish in that hillbilly mecca, Long Beach, CA. It was at Roscoe's and it was fan-farking-tastic.
