Love Letter to Chicken and Waffles
Chicken and Waffles, oh how I Love thee. You are a tasty and interesting combination but real talk, I’ve only experienced this dish done the right way a couple of times. Roscoe’s on Pico in LA, I love you for practically everything you do except the combination of chicken and waffles. The waffles I love with all of my heart primarily because they’re round and thin with a minor hint of sweetness and spice that might just be cinnamon, AND the butter melts instantly (even after sitting for 5-10 minutes). Chicken you’re cool but nothing special in my opinion, but you do remind me of home fried chicken, which always generates nostalgic and Good feelings. However, I prefer chicken that I don’t have to pick from the bone, but is ready to eat while laying on top of a soft bed of cooked batter, as deboned chicken is the better route in navigating this dish to blissful endings. Nevertheless, I prefer to eat my chicken and waffles together with melted butter on the waffles and a little to moderate portion of syrup over the entire combination of chicken, waffles, and fork.
Cut the chicken on top of the waffles, drizzle with a little bit of maple syrup then eat it all one bite at a time. Sweet, Savory, and Spicy with a bit of Smoke all together under the roof of your mouth coming together like a great romantic situation or just simply like chicken and waffles.
