KFC Is Finally Making Chicken And Waffles

For a brand that's built around fried chicken, it's pretty shocking KFC hasn't experimented with chicken and waffles yet. Thankfully, the chain is finally testing the waters - restaurants in three cities are slinging the dish this summer, and they're in the best place to make a judgment call on how it goes.

Two cities in North Carolina (Asheville and Charlotte) and one in South Carolina (Greenville) were picked to test KFC's new dish, and if it can stand up to southerners who get to eat Dame's Chicken and Waffles whenever they want, it'll be more than good enough for the rest of us.

Per The Charlotte Observer, the meal comes with two pieces of chicken - either bone-in dark meat or boneless chicken tenders - and a thick Belgian waffle about the size of your hand. It's served with a side of Mrs. Butterworth's syrup, but the Observer recommends asking for hot sauce too.

"We know that chicken and waffles have a cult following across the country, especially in the south, but not everyone has it available close by," KFC's senior marketing director Mike Wesley said in a statement. "We’re excited to hear what North Carolinian taste buds have to say."

KFC's chicken and waffles are in select stores now through July 29 for between $5 and $5.49 an order. If all goes well, we may see them in more cities later on.
