True Flavors Diner THE DISH Blueberry barbecue chicken and waffles – chipotle-blueberry glazed fried chicken breast, scratch-made blueberry buttermilk waffles served with butter, warm syrup and two eggs any style. $14.95 Our blueberry chicken and waffles is special to us for a number of reasons. When we opened our second location at Lakewood, we wanted an exclusive item that would draw some of our existing customers from our Highway 55 location. The dish is familiar (our classic chicken and waffles is our No. 1 seller at Highway 55) but also unique. We stuck with our homemade buttermilk waffle recipe that our customers love, but added fresh blueberries. We kept our crispy, juicy fried chicken breast, but added new seasonings and created a completely new blueberry chipotle glaze. … Familiar, but elevated! The presentation of the dish makes it special for us as well. The beautiful deep best breakfast/brunch blue from the fresh berries makes for a plate that really pops! Our diner is built around our belief that food should be shared, enjoyed and talked about! Most brunch restaurants in the area have their own versions of chicken and waffles, all slightly different, so we love to see the diversity celebrated. We love passing customers in the dining room and hearing how they feel about our version of chicken and waffles. We want customers to feel excited when our servers bring out the dish, when they smell the sweet and spicy aroma of the blueberries mixed with the chipotle peppers … when they cut into the chicken and dip their waffles in the sweet cream butter. We want customers to feel (and taste) the love we put into the dish!” – Sidney Coves True Flavors owner and executive chef 
