Can someone please explain chicken and waffles?

I don't understand this meal. Is this a low-country meal, Southern, Texan, etc? Do you eat them together, side by side on the same plate, or do you mix them so you get both flavors in the same bite? Are you supposed to put syrup and butter on the waffles?

To me a meal of chicken and a meal of waffles are completely separate and have completely separate and non-complimentary flavors. I'd love for someone to explain the history and appeal of this combo.
