Chicken and Waffles Are the Best Clucking Breakfast Ever
No one’s quite sure where the tradition of pairing fried chicken and crispy waffles first originated (some believe it was at Roscoe’s in Los Angeles).

He wisely selects chicken thighs to brine in buttermilk and spices before dredging them in a heavily seasoned flour mixture and frying to a shattering crispness; the thighs never lose their natural juiciness.Fried Chicken & WafflesIngredientsExcerpted from America’s Best Breakfasts by Lee Schrager and Adeena Sussman.
