The unexpected greatness of chicken and waffles is something everybody needs to experience in life. Sweet, savory, crunchy, moist, chewy, chicken-y. It combines everything that is great about food and mashes it all together. The only way it gets better? Ice cream.
In 2016, Japan unveiled an absolutely delectable dessert at their Karaage Festival, a whole event dedicated to fried chicken. As you can probably guess, that dessert was fried chicken ice cream, and once the idea got out, the Western world was not going to be without it.
Coolhaus, a food truck dedicated to serving up the best — and weirdest — types of ice cream, came up with their take on fried chicken and waffles ice cream and yes, it calls for actual fried chicken skins along with some familiar seasonings — like sage and cayenne — and real maple syrup. It’s a guaranteed win with anyone who likes fried chicken, and if you’re looking for something completely out-of-this-world to bring to the summer’s inevitable string of backyard barbecues, this might just be it.
Alternately, you can whip up some fried chicken and caramel sauce to drizzle over any kind of ice cream you want. Saveur has a recipe for this bizarrely tasty ice cream topping, and it’s safe to say it’s going to change your idea of what belongs on an ice cream sundae.
