NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon habanero hot sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 1 1/4 pounds total)
  • 1 22 -ounce bag frozen waffle fries
  • 1 cup cake flour (see page 74 for a substitute)
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 4 potato rolls, split
  • Iceberg lettuce and dill pickle slices, for topping
Directions
  • Whisk the buttermilk, hot sauce, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl. Transfer 3 tablespoons of the buttermilk mixture to a small bowl and whisk in the mayonnaise; set aside. Add the chicken thighs to the bowl with the remaining buttermilk mixture; toss to coat and set aside.

  • Bake the waffle fries as the label directs. Meanwhile, combine the cake flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a shallow dish. Heat 1/2 inch vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture and shake off the excess. Fry until golden and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a rack set over a baking sheet to drain.

  • Season the waffle fries with pepper. Divide the buttermilk mayonnaise among the roll bottoms. Top with lettuce, the chicken, pickles and the roll tops; serve with the waffle fries.
