America's Best Chicken and Waffles

America's Best Chicken & Waffles: MilkWood, Louisville, KY

Dan Dry

MilkWood, Louisville, KY

“When I moved to Kentucky, I was so curious about this dish,” laughs chef/owner Ed Lee. “Is it breakfast? Is it dinner? It makes you cock your head, and it’s certainly a favorite. My only complaint is it’s so heavy.” So at MilkWood, he turned chicken and waffles into an appetizer. It starts with yeast-based waffles, cut into small strips and crisped as croutons. A bed of parsley and dill has a thin smear of buttermilk dressing, and his dark-meat chicken is poached in a stock of vinegar, soy, fish sauce, and spices. It’s then dredged in buttermilk and flour and deep-fried. actorstheatre.org/milkwood
