Fried Chicken and Waffle Sandwich with Potato Salad and Collard Slaw

['2 pounds small new potatoes', '1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided', '1 tablespoon Dijon mustard', '1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard', '2 tablespoons cider vinegar', '1 medium shallot, diced', '1/4 teaspoon black pepper', '1/4 cup olive oil', '3/4 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt', '1 teaspoon lemon zest', '2 tablespoons lemon juice', '1/2 small habanero pepper, seeded and finely diced (about 1/2 teaspoon)', '1 large clove garlic, finely grated', '1/2 teaspoon salt', '1/4 teaspoon black pepper', '1/2 bunch collard greens, center ribs removed, thinly sliced crosswise (about 3 cups)', '1/4 medium green cabbage, cored and thinly sliced (about 3 cups)', '1 medium carrot, julienned (about 1 cup)', '3/4 cup all-purpose flour', '1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper', '1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided', '1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided', '2 eggs', '3 dashes hot sauce', '1 cup plain bread crumbs', 'Vegetable oil, for frying', '4 (3-ounce) chicken cutlets, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness', '1 frozen waffle', '1/2 tablespoon butter', '1/2 tablespoon honey']

Place the potatoes in a pot of cold water with 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil and simmer, partially covered, until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, about 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and let cool. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, mustards, vinegar, shallot, and pepper in a small bowl. Pour in the olive oil while whisking to emulsify the dressing. Quarter the potatoes and toss with the dressing in a large bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Whisk the yogurt, lemon zest and juice, habanero pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Place the collard greens, cabbage, and carrot in a large bowl and toss with the dressing to coat. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Mix the flour, cayenne pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a shallow bowl. Beat the 2 eggs with the hot sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in another shallow bowl. Place the bread crumbs in a third shallow bowl. Fill a large Dutch oven or cast-iron skillet with oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches and heat carefully to 350°F. Pat chicken dry and coat in flour, dip in egg mixture, and dredge in bread crumbs, pressing to adhere. Repeat with remaining 3 pieces chicken.
Fry 2 pieces chicken until golden brown and cooked through, turning once, 5 to 6 minutes. (The chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165°F.) Repeat with remaining 2 pieces chicken. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and drain on a wire rack placed over a sheet tray.
Toast the waffle, spread with butter and honey, and cut in half. Place 1 chicken cutlet on a plate and layer with 1/4 cup slaw, 1/2 waffle, and 1/4 cup potato salad. Top with another chicken cutlet to form a sandwich. Repeat with remaining chicken cutlets to make a second sandwich.
The leftover potato salad and slaw can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
