Copy Cat Roaster's Chicken & Waffle

We love eating at Roaster's here in Karachi and every time we are there I order this delicious combination of waffle and chicken with rich creamy white sauce. This is my all time favorite  dish and so I decided to recreate it myself and to my surprise it wasn't so difficult. 

The Chicken and Waffle is a bold dish, since waffle is not very well known among Pakistani population and secondly, it is typically a breakfast item and not served for lunch or dinner. Since waffle is slightly sweet in taste, most people cannot conceive the idea of having waffle with a savory combination but for me it is a winner combination and I just cant have enough of it. 

It would be best if fresh home made waffles are served with this dish but I used frozen variety due to which it lost a point :( 

Nevertheless, it was delicious and a must try recipe!

Since I made it in kind of hurry so I don't have step by step pictures of this recipe but I will try to elaborate as much as I can in the recipe description. Ohkay? 

Chicken and Waffle 


For Chicken
  1. Boneless chicken fillets (500 gms)
  2. Red Chilli Powder (1/2 tsp)
  3. Salt (to taste)
For Creamy White Sauce
  1. Butter (1 tbsp)
  2. Garlic (1 tbsp - Chopped) 
  3. All purpose flour (1 tbsp)
  4. Chicken Stock (1/2 cup)
  5. Full Cream Milk (3/4 cup)
  6. Cheddar Cheese (1/2 cup - grated)
  7. Dried Tarragon (1/2 tsp)
  8. Coriander (chopped - for garnishing)
  • Marinate chicken in salt and chilies for 30 minutes and grill until tender
  • In a pan melt butter and saute garlic.
  • Add flour and cook for 1 minute on a medium heat, add chicken stock and mix well until the sauce gets thick.
  • Add milk, cheddar cheese, and tarragon and let simmer on low flame for 7 - 8 minutes. 
  • Serve hot on grilled chicken and waffle with a side of steamed vegetables.


  1. I've never had chicken and waffles together... this looks fantastic and so comforting!

  2. I've never actually had them together either, but the combination doesn't weird me out any. I would imagine it more as a breakfast item, though....with a white gravy, it really wouldn't be much different than having a slightly sweet biscuit.

  3. Not much of a waffle fan but thee dish looks so yum that I may just finish it you know :)


More good eats
