The meal pairs up Belgian style waffles with KFC’s Extra Crispy fried chicken or Extra Crispy tenders, served with a side of Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup, for $5.49. You can also get a Chicken and Waffles Sandwich featuring KFC’s recently-introduced Hot Honey fried chicken as a breast fillet in between two waffles, creating a decadent sandwich for $5.99.
KFC’s chicken and waffles will be available through the end of 2018. You can find the official announcement on the KFC Home Page.
KFC said the menu item is being added after years of testing and perfecting the recipe.
“Our famous extra crispy, savory fried chicken atop a Belgian Liege-style waffle, with the finishing touch of classic Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup, makes for a scrumptious dish I’d put up against versions at upscale restaurants, but we’re offering it at a price just about anyone can afford. And it can be enjoyed at KFCs across the country for brunch, lunch or dinner,” said Andrea Zahumensky, Chief Marketing Officer, KFC U.S.
The menu item perfectly pairs the southern favorite, Extra Crispy fried chicken, with thick, Belgian Liege-style waffles. The waffle recipe was developed specifically to pair perfectly with KFC’s Extra Crispy fried chicken and is made with a yeast-raised dough instead of a batter. The waffles include pearl sugar imported from Belgium that creates a delectable sweet and crunchy outer texture.
“When we decided to create Kentucky Fried Chicken & Waffles, we knew we had to make it really special,” said Bob Das, Head Chef for KFC U.S. “As the fried chicken experts, we had the chicken part covered. We went through 15 different variations before landing on our unique Belgian Liege-style waffle, which is sweeter and doughier than American-style waffles. The two combine seamlessly to create an extra delicious dish that KFC fans will love.”
Starting Nov. 12 and through December 31, Kentucky Fried Chicken & Waffles is available at KFC’s nearly 4,200 restaurants spread across every state in the U.S.

About KFC (from Wikipedia)
KFC, founded and also known as Kentucky Fried Chicken, is a chain of fast food restaurants based in Louisville, Kentucky, in the United States. It is the world’s second largest restaurant chain (as measured by sales) after McDonald’s, with almost 19,000 outlets in 123 countries and territories as of December 2016. KFC has been a brand and operating segment, termed a concept of Yum! Brands since 1997 when that company was spun off from PepsiCo as Tricon Global Restaurants Inc.
KFC’s original product is pressure fried chicken pieces, seasoned with Sanders’ recipe of 11 herbs and spices. The constituents of the recipe represent a notable trade secret. Larger portions of fried chicken are served in a cardboard “bucket”, which has become a well known feature of the chain since it was first introduced by franchisee Pete Harman in 1957. Since the early 1990s, KFC has expanded its menu to offer other chicken products such as chicken fillet burgers and wraps, as well as salads and side dishes, such as French fries and coleslaw, desserts, and soft drinks.
The company was founded as Kentucky Fried Chicken by Colonel Harland Sanders in 1952.
