Side Dishes That Go with Fried Chicken
The words fried chicken are usually enough to make our mouths water but what about the wonderful fried chicken side dishes that turn simple fried chicken into a hearty meal? Favorite fried chicken side dishes vary from person to person but coleslaw, biscuits, green beans, and corn on the cob are all much loved. Some people prefer creamed corn to corn on the cob.
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.
How to Make Gravy for Mashed Potatoes
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.
Side Dishes for a Picnic
Southern fried chicken is great hot or cold. If you plan to eat it cold as part of a picnic, you could also take coleslaw, vegetables with a dip, fruit slices, corn on the cob kept warm in aluminum foil or a bean salad or pasta salad. If you are having a fried chicken picnic, do not forget to take plenty of napkins!
