Chicken and waffles have become a national staple food, so it was only a matter of time before a restaurant franchise hopped on the trend.
It turns out, KFC is that very franchise.

According to Us Magazine, the fried chicken franchise started serving its new chicken and waffle dishes on Monday. You can either get a plate of fried chicken with Belgian waffles or a sandwich with two waffles subbing in for bread.
"When we decided to create Kentucky Fried Chicken and waffles, we knew we had to make it really special," said Bob Das, head chef for KFC U.S., in a press release. "As the fried chicken experts, we had the chicken part covered. We went through 15 different variations before landing on our unique Belgian Liege-style waffle, which is sweeter and doughier than American-style waffles. The two combine seamlessly to create an extra delicious dish that KFC fans will love."
Once Twitter found out about the news, sentiments ranged from "it's about time!" to this:
Just send a truck full of it to my house please! #KFC
