    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?

      Excellent taste. I am from Lewisburg, Central Pa. We are Dutch, as much as Lancaster, with weekly markets, etc. My only comment, the next time I make it, I am doubling the flour in the thickener. The gravy was way to thin. To thicken correctly, by simmering, you have no sauce left because of cooking time for flour recommended. This is definitely a keeper and a recipe I grew up with. A poster mentioned saffron, an ingredient not in recipe and one not used in Pa Dutch area.where I lived. Also Belgium Waffles, which I love, are not part of Central Pa heritage. I happen to use a Belgium iron to make my waffles, but the recipe is basic waffles.
