An overnight brine of buttermilk and Cholula® Hot Sauce gives a juicy kick to these chicken and waffle slider sandwiches.
I’m pleased as punch to bring you this recipe sponsored by Cholula® Hot Sauce, because at our house, Cholula hot sauce is probably our most used condiment in the cupboard.
It’s a Southern thing. But it’s taking over mainstream. Chicken and waffles.
The best fried chicken I’ve ever had was from Gus’s Fried Chicken in Memphis, TN. I shared it with my friend Laura straight out of the paper bag on an old picnic table at The Shacks. She’d ordered it for us hot and spicy. Just the way I pretty much like everything.
Then last year, I took the whole dang family back to the South where we hit up more than one fried chicken joint and really went for the gusto with chicken and waffles at Hattie B’s—served only on Sunday.
These two meals are what food memories are made of.
Then we came home. My man couldn’t get that chicken and waffles breakfast out of his head. And ever since he’s been working on perfecting his version.
And today friends, this recipe is it.
