Potato Side Dishes

Potatoes are very popular with fried chicken and you can choose from potato salad, baked potato with sour cream, French fries, potato wedges or mashed potatoes with gravy. You can even make a sweet potato or yam side dish because the sweet flavor is really good with fried chicken recipes. Some people prefer to have a rice side dish instead of a potato side dish with fried chicken. In the south, people often dip fried chicken in honey to make it sweeter.

Gravy is simple to make. You need to thicken two tablespoons of meat drippings or Minor’s Au Jus with a tablespoon or two of flour. Over a medium heat, stir in a cup of water and a cup of milk gradually and season to taste. You can also add onion powder, garlic powder, or herbs if you like.
