100 Favorite Dishes, No. 69: Chicken and Waffles at Jonathon's

To prepare for this fall's Best of Dallas® 2014 issue, we're counting down (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes. If there's a dish you think we need to try, leave it in the comments, or email me.

Every chef has one. Some chefs have entire menus full of them -- that dish that they're just not in love with making anymore but that their customers have fallen completely in love with. Try and take it off the menu and pitchforks ensue, or worse, they end up with an empty dining room.

Jonathon Erdeljac's albatross is the chicken and waffles you see pictured above. It's not that he hates making the dish, but you san see him plating up number 732,426 with a deep and heavy sigh. "I left the easy life at Breadwinners to make chicken and waffles till I die," you can hear him saying.
