Chicken Fried Potatoes Russet Potatoes for Chicken Fried Potatoes Chicken Fried Potatoes process Chicken Fried Potatoes recipe Chicken Fried Potatoes. These are glorious. Crispy on the outside thin potato slices and a French fry in the middle. So that’s pretty awesome right? We also made a homemade buttermilk ranch dipping sauce. This is one of my favorite appetizers we have posted recently because it’s really simple to make, not a whole lot of ingredients, and its totally delicious. Once you have your assembly line down for the coating of the potato slices everything else is a cinch. It’s really easy to make batches and batches of these. You all know these would be perfect for Super Bowl, but I think these would be perfect for lots of situations, like as a side dish to our 50/50 burger, or just as a meal on it’s own (cause you’re an adult and you can do what you want), or as a delicious snack. Lot’s and lots of ways for this recipe to be enjoyed, so get to it!

    the recipe looks great but why the name? I kept looking thru the recipe to find chicken mentioned.

      It’s called chicken fried steak because it’s coated and cooked liked fried chicken… similar to “chicken fried steak” which is a beef cube steak, dredged in a flour mixture and fried! Hope that clears it up for you! :)

        Can you substitute butter milk for anything else?

        • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

          If you don’t find buttermilk, you can add a little lemon juice to your whole milk and you’ll have made your own buttermilk! :)
