Chicken and Sweet Potato Waffles

"I have grown to love sweet potatoes I use to not be a fan. But all of sudden that changed, they say when you get older your palate changes and that is true. Sweet potatoes are good for you as well they can be a sweet treat. One of my favorite breakfast items is Sweet Potato waffles with warm syrup and fried chicken and walnuts. The warm spices in the sweet potato waffle, juicy fried chicken warm syrup and walnuts for crunchy texture to die for!!!"

    Your recipe is not very clear, I am a cook and know the basics. However, subsume who doesn't could not follow. You don't provide instructions to make waffles. Also, what is divine kuizune spice? Do you purchase it? Can you make it?
