    I grew up in the south spending most of 30 years there. I moved here 11 years ago. Never in my life have I ever heard of chicken and waffles as a combination. Chicken and biscuits, sure. Chicken and cornbread, of course. But never chicken and waffles. Is this more of a California cuisine? I’d love to see responses. I’m open to being educated. This is very intriguing.

    Chicken and waffels sounds like an mmmmmmmm combination!! Just the thought of pancake or waffel syrup on my fried chicken makes me hungry!
    Some people can’t stand the thought of syrup on chicken, yet they will go into a McDonalds, buy an order of Chicken Nuggets and request honey as their dipping sauce! Just the thought of fried chicken and waffels covered in boysenberry syrup makes my mouth water!!!!!!
