Chicken, waffles and gravy: the easy way

 

J.M. Hirsch/AP Food Editor

 

This is my weeknight-friendly take on fried chicken served on waffles, a total comfort food perfect for a cold winter night. And two totally respectable convenience foods make it a snap to get on the table in almost no time -- rotisserie chicken and frozen waffles. I'm a big believer that if you eat a lot of chicken and have a crazy busy schedule, a rotisserie chicken should be a staple of your weekly shopping list. For this easy dinner, I used both of these go-to ingredients, and dressed them with a killer mushroom gravy. You can serve this chicken and gravy over toasted slabs of sourdough bread, too. 

 

 

 

ROTISSERIE CHICKEN WITH WAFFLES AND GRAVY 

 

Start to finish: 20 minutes 

 

Makes 4 servings 

 

 

 

1 tablespoon olive oil 

 

Two 4-ounce containers sliced button mushrooms 

 

1 medium yellow onion, diced 

 

2 cloves garlic, minced 

 

1/4 cup white wine 

 

1 cup heavy cream 

 

Salt and ground black pepper 

 

4 frozen waffles 

 

Meat from a 2-pound rotisserie chicken, warmed and shredded 

 

 

 

  • In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the mushrooms, onion and garlic, then saute until the mushrooms are browned and the pan is nearly dry, about 5 minutes. 

     

  • Add the wine and stir to deglaze the pan. When the wine has evaporated, stir in the cream, then bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper, then set aside. 

     

  • Toast the waffles according to package directions. 

     

  • Place one toasted waffle on each serving plate. Top with a heap of warmed, shredded chicken, then spoon ample amounts of mushroom gravy over it.
