Chicken and waffles is “a tradition that runs far and wide, from Harlem to the South to LA,” says brendastarlet. Essentially, it’s waffles with a piece of fried chicken on top. “The maple syrup substitutes for gravy/honey, and ties the two together,” says brendastarlet. Fried chicken with a spicy kick to it goes particularly well with the sweetness of the syrup, says RosemaryHoney.

Sam at Novas has taken the concept in an original direction, making waffles from Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix with chopped-up leftover roast chicken in the batter, served with applesauce.
