Brian Mortellaro, a franchisee who is spearheading the project, likened the sandwich to a beloved Southern breakfast dish, saying "It’s a chicken-and-waffles taste," per the report. However, it's worth noting that the Chicken McGriddle is by no means a "chicken-and-waffles" sandwich, seeing as the McGriddle buns are more like pancakes and not waffles. Further, it appears that the sandwich is either the same or similar to the Chicken McGriddle (pictured above) that you can already order from McDonald's unofficial secret menu.
While the Chicken McGriddle sounds great (and the one we ate was damn tasty), an actual chicken-and-waffles sandwich would be a zillion times better. But, ultimately, we really wouldn't mind being able to order this thing from the official menu.
