  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F (93°C) to keep the cooked chicken and waffles warm while preparing the rest of the recipe.

  2. To make the chicken, mix together the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper in a shallow dish.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and eggs.

  4. Dip each chicken thigh in the flour mixture, then the buttermilk mixture, and then back in the flour mixture to coat. Shake off any excess flour.

  5. Heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (177°C).

  6. Fry the chicken for about 12-15 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Drain on paper towels and place in the oven to keep warm.

  7. To make the waffles, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

  8. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, and eggs.

  9. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

  10. Heat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Pour about 1/2 cup of batter onto the iron and cook until golden brown and crisp.

  11. To make the honey butter, mix together the softened butter, honey, and salt until well combined.

  12. Serve the fried chicken on top of the waffles, and drizzle with the honey butter.
