Blue Ribbon Recipe

A great spin on traditional chicken and waffles recipe. We loved the savory potato waffles. They are unique and delicious! The brine really tenderizes and adds great flavor to the fried chicken. We opted for beer in the brine, but next time we want to try with the ginger ale for added sweetness. We topped off our chicken and waffles with some maple syrup ... yummy.
