Chicken and Waffles

Last Thursday, it became clear that we were going to get an epic snowstorm. It became clear to me that I needed to engage in an epic cooking project, so on Friday before they shut down the T, Elizabeth and Sara adventured over to my house to make chicken and waffles.


I had never deep-fried anything before, and honestly, Elizabeth did most of the work. There were a lot of steps involved, but none of them were that complicated, and the chicken was some of the best I'd ever had.

(I absolutely gave them a hard time about the Ivy League sweatshirts. Actually, they gave themselves a hard time.)


I have the BEST waffle recipe, so of course it made sense to have waffles with our fried chicken. I'm not sure why they're such a perfect combination, but they really are, especially when the world outside is quickly turning into a winter wonderland.


We felt extra cozy indoors.


  1. Yummmmm! I'm originally from Georgia, so every time I see chicken and waffles on a menu, I feel like I have to order it, but it never occurred to me to actually make it myself :) Maybe it's because my mom's fried chicken is the best I've ever had.

    Love epic snowstorm cooking adventures!

  2. Yum is right.
    And cute about the sweatshirts... did they give themselves a hard time about wearing them, or did they give themselves a hard time earning them?

  3. You have inspired me to make my own. Pretty much my favorite breakfast meal. YUM oh YUM ... LOVED this post.

  4. Oh yum. Chicken and waffles is one of my favorite comfort food meals. That chicken looks crispy and perfect!

  5. It looks like it came out perfectly!! I feel like I've been talking about chicken and waffles with everyone lately. Guess it's the cold weather?

  6. I really am going to have to try this...I've been legitimately obsessed with fried chicken since forever, and somehow still haven't had this combo. That's probably illegal.
