  • Summary

    The name sounds like a sweet-tooth parade, but this recipe makes sense when you pair it with a spicy scallion cornmeal waffle. Wells’ Restaurant, a popular 1930s Harlem supper club, cemented the chicken and waffle combination in American culinary history; Amy Ruth’s in Harlem, Beans & Cornbread in suburban Detroit and Hotville in Los Angeles continue that tradition. Almost any summer-fruit jam can be substituted in the marinade, and if you don't have peanut oil, use another oil with a high smoke point.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large egg
    • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
    • 1/3 cup strawberry jam (or other summer-fruit jam)
    • 2 pounds large, thick chicken breast cutlets (about 6 pieces)
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup cornstarch
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • Peanut oil (or other oil with a high smoke point), as needed (about 3 cups)
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • Scallion Cornmeal Waffles, or Bacon Cornbread
