I don't get the chicken and waffle craze.

I do not understand the chicken and waffle craze, because I have yet to find anyplace that marries the flavors well. I've had it at a hole in the walls and an upscale establishments.
I have a very sophisticated palate so it's not like I don't get the sweet and savory thing. It's just that fried chicken and a buttermilk waffle really don't seem to go together.
I think perhaps a roasted chicken and a potato waffle might be ok with some sort of sweet spicy caramelized onion type marmalade. I plan on working on that this weekend.
Otherwise fried chicken, maple syrup and waffle really don't mix. sorry.
