KFC announced Monday that it will at long last start pairing fried chicken with waffles.

The Kentucky Fried Chicken & Waffles limited-time offer combines KFC’s Extra Crispy fried chicken with Belgian waffles made with a yeast-raised dough that includes pearl sugar imported from Belgium. The waffle recipe “was developed specifically to pair” with the company’s Extra Crispy chicken.

The items are available today through Dec. 31 at nearly all 4,200 of KFC’s U.S. restaurants. The meal options include Extra Crispy fried chicken or Extra Crispy tenders with waffles and a side of Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup starting at $5.49.

Customers can also get a Hot Honey fried chicken breast sandwich between two waffles starting at $5.99.

“As the fried chicken experts, we had the chicken part covered,” Bob Das, head chef for KFC U.S., said in a statement. “We went through 15 different variations before landing on our unique Belgian Liege-style waffle, which is sweeter and doughier than American-style waffles.”

The company began advertising the product Sunday.
