I visited STK in midtown Atlanta and the chicken and waffles on their brunch menu was a delicious treat. Would love to have the recipe. — Eunice Mafundikwa, Brookhaven

The recipe is the creation of chef Thomas Stewart who says you can make it with either skinless or skin-on chicken thighs. His preference? Skin on. And in our photo, the dish is garnished with coriander cress, not easily obtained by a home cook. He suggests garnishing with cilantro leaves instead.

The dish is also served drizzled with a maple barbecue sauce. If you’d like to do the same, combine your favorite barbecue sauce with some maple syrup, and add hot sauce if desired. Plain old maple syrup will work as well.

STK is now open for in person dining daily with limited hours and offers ready-to-eat Family Meals for curbside pickup and delivery. They’ve also opened STK Market so we can order their signature choice and prime meat cuts for home delivery nationwide. With graduation season upon us and Memorial Day right around the corner, there is no easier way to stock up on delicious staples everyone will love.

STK’s chef Thomas Stewart says you can use this recipe for pancakes, too. This will make about 6 3-1/2-inch square waffles. If you want everyone to have more than one waffle square, double the recipe.
