Not Chicken and Waffles

An article in the Washington Post on new or upcoming additions to the Prince George's County restaurant scene. Opening soon is "Gladys and Ron's Chicken & Waffles". My first thought was that it's too bad Oma isn't around for that. She loved chicken and waffles. But then I went to the web site, it said
It is widely known that Chicken and Waffles started in Harlem, New York.
That didn't sound right. Further, the picture (shown above, but modified) didn't look right.

Some further Googling took me to what I was looking for -- real chicken and waffles. The key sentences are
It is very common in PA Dutch country...
Serve the waffles topped with chicken and gravy.

Sadly, I can't find a picture of these chicken and waffles on-line. It's probably just as well; my cholesterol is increasing just writing about it.
