Craft Service Snack Idea: Mini Chicken & Waffles

Chicken and Waffles

If you want to really give your cast and crew a treat, make them chicken and waffles! They’ll love ’em! No one can say for sure the exact origins of the combination but the story I’m familiar with originates at a 1938 Harlem supper club.

Wells Supper Club was the go to spot for jazz musicians after their late night gigs. However, when they arrived at the club they were too late for dinner and too early for breakfast so the Wells proprietor created a compromised dish, chicken and waffles.

A little dinner (chicken) with a little breakfast (waffles). The best of both worlds! A real crowd pleaser.
