Bacon Waffle Topped with Buttermilk Fried Chicken

This Father's Day recipe was provided by Chef Harrison Keevil. He says:

Waffles have always been a very familial and comforting dish for me – my father would make them for me and my brother most mornings. My restaurant (Brookville Restaurant) is very meat-centric. I make no apologies for that – it’s what I like to eat and what I like to cook. So it made every bit of sense me for to incorporate bacon into waffles for our brunch menu. It doesn’t get more meat-centric than that.
