In the South, Chicken & Waffles can be found often on the brunch menu, but most serve them with regular breakfast waffles. I have never understood the appeal of putting a piece of fried chicken on top of a regular waffle. But when the light bulb in my head turned on, it reminded me of all of the times my son has requested cornbread or corn muffins with syrup. Now fried chicken with cornbread is a good idea any day.
I didn't have any corn muffin mix, so I just made my favorite corn bread recipe (from the back of Aunt Jemima cornmeal).
I cooked the waffles just I would normally. I did have to add a little extra milk to make the cornbread batter a bit more like the consistency of waffle batter.
Voila! Chicken & Waffles. (So good my son even ate the fourth waffle with no syrup at all!) NOW will never have to think about what I'll be doing with leftover chicken in the future again!
