To serve:

Directions

Special equipment: waffle maker

In a large bowl, combine 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning with 1 cup buttermilk 

Soak the chicken in the seasoned buttermilk for 30 minutes 

Pour the canola oil into a deep, heavy skillet until the oil fills the pan about an inch up the sides. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 375 degrees F. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

In another large bowl, whisk together the cornstarch, flour, remaining lemon-pepper seasoning, and a good pinch of salt, and pepper. 

Remove the chicken thighs from the buttermilk, dip in the seasoned flour, then dip back into the buttermilk, and then into the flour again. Make sure to coat the chicken on all sides with each dip. 

Fry the chicken until golden brown on each side, about 8 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 5 to 7 more minutes, or until cooked through. 

While the chicken is cooking, make the waffles: Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, and curry powder for the waffles in one bowl and whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter in another bowl. 

Combine the 2 mixtures by pouring the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stirring until just evenly combined. 

Preheat a waffle maker and make waffles according to manufacturer's instructions. Cook the waffles until lightly golden. Make the waffles until you've used up all of the batter. Keep the waffles and chicken warm. 

To make the aioli: Put the one egg yolk into a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper and start whisking while slowly drizzling in the grapeseed oil. Whisk until thickened. 

Mince the garlic cloves and stir into the aioli. Stir in the ranch dressing. 

To serve, slice the waffles open in half through the centers and lay the bottom halves on a platter. Top each waffle slice with a lettuce leaf and top with a piece of chicken. Drizzle the aioli over top of it all and top with the remaining waffles halves. Serve with maple syrup on the side.
