The southern breakfast gods have spoken. Starting Monday, November 12, fried chicken and waffles will be available at KFC restaurants nationwide for a limited time only. After tests in North and South Carolina, two styles are being added to the menu through December 31. Get your stretchy pants ready.
You can order a plate, which comes with thick, Belgian Liege-style waffles and either extra crispy fried chicken or extra crispy tenders, plus a side of Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup. Or, you can get a sandwich, with KFC’s new sweet-heat Hot Honey fried chicken served between two waffles.
The waffles are made with yeast-raised dough instead of a batter, and a Belgian pearl sugar that creates a sweet and crunchy outer texture, per a KFC press release. Head Chef Bob Das calls them “sweeter and doughier than American-style waffles”
