Chicken and Waffles

Chicken and waffles is a very common meal around these parts. I can remember the first time I met someone who was not a "local" and had never had chicken and waffles. I was shocked and horrified! I thought everyone ate chicken and waffles.
It is really just good, homemade waffles topped with cooked chicken and gravy. You can figure out how to make the cooked chicken and gravy on your own, but here is my awesome recipe for homemade waffles (seriously, only the best of my recipes for you guys!):

1 cup flour
3 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup milk
3 eggs (separated)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Mix the dry ingredients together.  Add milk and egg yolks (beaten).  Stir in oil and vanilla.  In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff.  Fold the egg whites into the batter.  Pour batter onto hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown.

I suppose that you can make these for breakfast as well.  I bet they would be great to freeze and pull out on busy mornings.  Sadly, not too long ago one of my kids said, "You mean you can eat these with syrup?"  Umm... I guess we eat chicken and waffles more than syrup and waffles.  =)

I have never heard of chicken and waffles. I'm sure it tastes good but I'm still not sure about it. I've been looking for a great waffle recipe though! I want to freeze some so they can just be popped in the toaster before school. Thanks!

I can't say that the combination sounds very appealing, but I'd try it...especially if you're saying it's good! =) I actually prefer plain old butter on my pancakes and waffles, so I'm sure I'd enjoy the savory chicken gravy.

Thanks for sharing your recipe.
