The marinade alone is reason enough to make this sandwich from E2GO in Charlotte, NC. The flavor is potent, balanced, and delicious. It'll work with shrimp or pork too and will last covered in your fridge for a month.
This may seem an unlikely combination, but trust me, for those moments when you're not sure if it's dinner or breakfast that you want, this satisfies completely. Waffles stand in here in place of biscuits--soak up all the buttery, syrupy goodness that is drizzled over crisp-fried chicken. This recipe is based on a killer version of chicken and waffles that is served at Emeril's Restaurant in New Orleans.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 1/2 hours plus 4 hours to overnight for marinating the chicken
