How to Make It
Beat egg lightly in a large bowl. Whisk in buttermilk and melted butter until smooth. Whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture to buttermilk mixture; whisk just until smooth. Fold in chopped chicken.
Heat a waffle iron on medium according to manufacturer’s instructions. Coat with cooking spray. Add 2/3 cup of the batter to each quadrant. Cook until browned and done, 4 to 5 minutes. Place 1 waffle on each of 4 plates. Top evenly with syrup and butter pats. Sprinkle with bits of fried chicken breading.
