Chicken + Waffles
"This dish is about contradictions—soft and crunchy, sweet and spicy. It's made with spiced pecan and cornflake-crusted chicken with cheddar-chive waffles, red-pepper jam, and a little bit of Maine-made maple syrup and demi-glace. I was nervous that I wouldn't live up to the expectations for this dish, but people keep telling me it's the best they've ever had—so I'm pretty excited about that."
