How Sweet Chick Remixes Classic Chicken and Waffles | Food Skills

Chicken and waffles are one of the world’s great culinary odd couples. A perfect pairing of savory and sweet, the dish is rooted in the tradition of Southern soul food, and popularized by chains like Roscoe’s in L.A. But some might be surprised to learn that chicken and waffles were actually first combined in Harlem, a product of the jazz clubs of the 1920s. Now, nearly a century later, NYC’s Sweet Chick is using the dish as a blank canvas for blending regional flavors, covering its chicken and waffles in everything from Nashville-style seasoning, to tangy General Tso’s sauce. While Sweet Chick might not be ground zero for chicken-and-waffle purists everywhere, owner John Seymour seeks to capture the cultural landscape of NYC in 2018—bringing hip-hop and comfort food together at locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and now Long Island City, Queens.

  1. Want that Southern experience followed by a bunch of hippy Penn bullshit? Is that annoying asian chick running the channel now?

  2. How is this chicken and waffles? I only see one actual waffle. How do 4 segments of one Belgian waffle become waffles? Its just one waffle….

  3. Cool man. Must be nice growing up rich. How about giving a shout out to your chefs and cooks that did the work because it’s pretty obvious you know fuck all about cooking. The way you talk I’m not even sure you could manage a restaurant. But hey I’m sure your parents got your back so don’t worry about lifting a finger

  4. I'm fairly certain that an alternate definition of a "bozo" is someone that sits and talks with his hand on his chin a lot, and thinks that customers coming in for two days is "being embraced".

  5. Was that really N.O.R.E? What happened to that different kind of food show? That last episode though… I didn't expect to see him on this channel again. Good for you! Good for him! Everything is kewl! But Sean Evans IS the Bomb
