I used to keep it a secret that I watched Gossip Girl. Now that I have been back in the US for awhile, I realized that people watch some really awful television, and that I should be proud of my one guilty pleasure. At least it isn't some crap reality TV game show. Remember that episode of Seinfeld where Jerry had to take the lie detector test about weather or not he watched Melrose Place? After it was out that he watched the show, he seemed to start to embrace it. Anyway, I wanted to make waffles to watch the finale of Gossip Girl with Steph, because the guy on the show is always talking about waffles for some weird reason. I didn't want normal breakfast waffles, and I started to think about how people like to eat it with fried chicken. Then I started thinking about using it as a sandwich bread and that's where this meal came from. Instead of fried chicken, I went with an easy bbq chicken flavored with a store bought sauce, and a simple slaw topping. I loved how it came out!
As I mentioned, the chicken was really simple with onions, jalapenos and a store bought bbq sauce.
The slaw was some red cabbage, apples, and carrots, with mayo, cider vinegar, and chipotle tabasco.
A great and really easy waffle recipe from Alton Brown.
The show was pretty good too!
The Waffles are Altons. Cook them longer than the waffle maker says to to get them crispy.
The chicken is just some caramelized onions, jalapenos, add chicken, cook, add a nice brand of store bought bbq, cook, shred the meat.
The slaw is purple cabbage, carrots, and apples, dress with some mayo, apple cider vinegar, chipotle tabasco, salt and pepper
