When my mom was little she used to get this at a favorite diner. For years, she has told me how she misses this recipe for chicken & waffles and how she wished she found a recipe. I found it for her and she was sooo happy. It brought back many happy memories 8) I thought it was a cozy, yummy recipe to post. Enjoy!

As someone who grew up in Lancaster County, this recipe brings back a lot of great of simpler times and people. This version of the recipe with just a little bit more pepper yields a very authentic version of what I remember, however my mom wouldn't be caught dead making any less than about four times the amount of this recipe!! Us Dutchies can eat, dontcha know?
