Fried Chicken and Waffle Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

This is a guest post from one of my favorite PR people, Alexis Linn.  Alexis works with Porter Novelli and represents McDonalds and The Ronald McDonald Houses.  She posted a Face Book status mentioning these sandwiches and I badgered her into giving me the recipe (ok all I did was ask, but badgering really sounded better didn’t it?).  If you make these you must share your pics with me!

Fried Chicken and Waffle Grilled Cheese Sandwich

For this recipe, I make the waffles and fried chicken in advance then refrigerate them overnight.  Of course, you can also buy the fried chicken at your favorite soul food establishment.
