“I serve my Chicken & Waffles with sorghum, as a nod to my upbringing in Macon, Georgia,” says chef Anthony Gray. “It’s more earthy and less sweet.” Gray layers the waffles with thin slices of country ham and fresh sage leaves. His chicken (your choice of white or dark meat) spends 24 hours brining in a sweet tea and buttermilk mixture. “This dish is a special on the menu, about once a week because we fry every piece of chicken to order in a cast-iron skillet,” he says. “It’s the right way, but it creates a lot of work.” baconbrospublichouse.com
