Bourbon Maple Pecan Syrup over Chicken & Waffles

Updated: Apr 1, 2021

You can never go wrong with chicken and waffles. It's the perfect marriage of breakfast and dinner. This recipe is inspired by my two favorite Chicken and Waffles spots that I have eaten at over the years; Dames Chicken & Waffles (North Carolina) and Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles (Georgia). I tried to amplify the dish by creating a super easy and delicious Maple Bourbon Syrup to pour on top. This recipe is also quick and easy without the need to soak the chicken in Buttermilk. You will be eating in no time.
