Sweet Chick

Today, March 25, is known around the globe as International Waffle Day. While waffles may have been created in Europe, it wasn’t until these griddled cakes reached the shores of Harlem that it was discovered they could be wedded in matrimony to golden fried chicken. At Sweet Chick, restaurateur John Seymour, has mastered the art of pairing fried chicken with fluffy golden waffles. For International Waffle Day, he is sharing his signature recipe for serving up mouth-watering, Belgian-inspired waffles. And if you’re inspired, you too can enjoy them the way the Sweet Chick team does — with your favorite fried chicken on top.

Waffle Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Waffle Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
