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.
Rotisserie Chicken with Waffles and Gravy
Start to finish: 20 minutes
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 a toasted waffle on each serving plate.
Top with a heap of warmed, shredded chicken, then spoon ample amounts of mushroom gravy over it.
