It’s a great time that you can use for some rest and relaxation, to build fun memories with family members or to catch up with an old friend. Brunch food is notoriously delicious.

Chicken and Waffles: Brunch Comfort Food
While chicken and waffles are well known for their popularity across the southern region, their culinary history is actually a bit richer than that. The first known pairing of chicken and waffles as a combined recipe was served in colonial America during the seventeenth century. Even more interesting, the modern soul food variety of the dish is believed to have originated at the Wells Supper Club in Harlem, New York sometime around 1938.
Nothing says brunch quite like chicken and waffles. Everyone has their own take on chicken and waffles, too. For example, there are such crazy varieties out there as Chicken and Waffles Nachos and Chicken and Waffles Pizza.
