We go to Charleston 3 times a year and now preparing to move there. Chicken and waffles with honey butter and pure maple syrup is the true and wonderful version of chicken and waffles. I tried your version thinking maybe it could be a suitable substitute but, sorry it wasn't so good for me anyway. We all have a different pallat, I'm sure many will love it tho.

Have never heard of chicken and waffles this way, having lived in the deep south 20+ years. The soul food recipe includes heavily breaded fried chicken and waffles w syrup on the side. Sweet and Savory.

i live in the Mid-Atlantic states. We didn't have chicken and waffles this way either. We had "poached" whole chicken (done on top of the stove in some water) with gravy, mashed potatoes, and the homemade waffles made from Bisquick. The chicken would fall off the bones when mom got done with it. I used to put butter and sprinkle sugar on my waffles and eat them after the chicken. Sort of like a desert. Other times I'd put the chicken gravy on the waffles. How I miss those days.

From the deep south too. Reminds me of my grandmother's creamed chicken gravy over biscuits, which my mother converted into a casserole.

Had this for dinner ..was really good..

I have never had chicken and waffles.....but am going to have to give them a try....good for my house because we all come and go at different tiimes and the chicken and sauce can be combined and all anyone has to do is come home and toast a waffle while heating up chicken...

looking good for a day like today
