super_grass: It's a black people dish.

Black people aren't necessarily southern, see: Detroit.


RIGHT!  I totally missed the part of American History where black people started growing out of the ground in Detroit one day, or maybe... maybe it was the chapter where free Africans emigrated directly to Michigan, circumventing the slave trade entirely.

/ Really gotta keep sharp on this stuff...

Mose: wellreadneck: "Killing a chicken, wringing its neck and cooking it for breakfast is a pretty traditional thing to do" in rural areas

News to me.

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.


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.

Lumpmoose: Rapmaster2000: It's a dish invented in the North by Southern blacks and consumed by white people in Northern cities located in the South like Austin and Atlanta.

/that should kick things off

So it's like spaghetti and meatballs then.


My cousin Sal was in town from Sicily... so we took him to the Olive Garden.

As an ignorant city slicker I have always wondered but was afraid to ask.  Do you put syrup on the chicken?  If not how do you eat waffles and chicken?  I just can't wrap my head around the logistics.  I'll take my answer with a side of gritties.

So just the other week I ordered a nice plate of chicken & waffles that cost me $15.
Now, that sounds downright overpriced-HOWEVER...... it was served to me by a very classy transvestite.

TheJoe03: More soul food than southern but there's a lot of crossover between black and southern culture.


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."

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

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


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.

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.

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.

Sort of like a southerner who goes off to college in the north and comes back all uppity.


See, you say "uppity"; we say "not a farking moron"
