That's soul food. Yeah, I know. Everyone wants to claim the "soul food" label nowadays. But, they are just posers. Chicken and waffles is soul food. Southern ethnic food. Not Italian. Not Irish. Not Eastern European.

It's authentic soul food.

When I do chicken and waffles, I pull all the meat off, place it on the waffles, cover with hot sauce then coat it all with maple syrup... Yummy!

That's how it's done.

Interesting, I have heard of Chicken and Waffles but haven't tried it. I saw on DDD guy tried them and the waffle batter had malted milk in it which according to him left a crust on the waffle to prevent it from getting soggy. I'm going to have to try it...

From Wikipedia.......
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_and_waffles
The exact origins of the dish are unknown; there are several versions of its origins.

One version:

"As unusual as it might seem, the marriage of chicken and waffles actually has deep roots. Thomas Jefferson brought a waffle iron back from France in the 1790s and the combination began appearing in cookbooks shortly thereafter. The pairing was enthusiastically embraced by African Americans in the South. For a people whose cuisine was based almost entirely on the scraps left behind by landowners and plantation families, poultry was a rare delicacy; in a flapjack culture, waffles were similarly exotic. Chicken and waffles for decades has been a special-occasion meal in African American families, often supplying a hearty Sunday morning meal".[2]

Another version:

Some historians believe the dish goes back to the late 19th century, when Southern African-Americans, recently freed from slavery, began migrating to the Northern United States. According to author John T. Edge: "My guess is that it comes from the days when someone would go out in the morning and wring a chicken's neck and fry it for breakfast. Preparing a breakfast bread with whatever meat you have on the hoof, so to speak, comes out of the rural tradition".[1]

Benny's Home Cooked.com notes:

"It is interesting to note that this combination and/or recipe does not appear in Abby Fisher's 1881 cookbook What Mrs. Fisher Knows About Old Southern Cooking. Mrs. Fisher was a former slave and her book is generally considered the first cookbook written by an African-American. These foods appear (but not together) in Mrs. Porter's 1871 cookbook Mrs. Porter's Southern Cookery Book.[3]

Interesting...I didn't realize that "soul food" was limited to only a single, particular region of the country???

I never saw it growing up in the South, but there's a place here called Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles (actually 2 locations) that I've had some great meals at. It's been a long time since I've been there - I need to go back.

I think that soul food, although it is an American style of food found all over the country today, has roots in the areas that once held slaves, and once harbored freed slaves. Yeah, it is everywhere today, but there was a migration of that style of cooking. But, it started with the slaves and freedmen.

Like most foods, I like some soul food, and not so much other soul food. But, I appreciate the history of soul food, whether I like it or not.

One of the best things about living in the "melting pot" is the incredible food we get to eat.

It might be southern in the way it has the ingredients from the south, with southern fried chicken, or waffles or the sausage gravy, but I've never seen it offered all together....not that I wouldn't try it. I like all the ingredients, and usually have at least the ingredients in my meals at some point during a month of eating.

Plus 1. It makes a great breakfast, but I need biscuits for the gravy
