Here's my attempt at a traditional Southern-themed dinner: fried chicken, mac & cheese and collard greens. A pretty great way to end the weekend if you ask me.
One of my favourite fried chicken recipes is Thomas Keller's (I divide the recipe by three to accommodate eight pieces of chicken). The collards were chopped and sauteed with onions, garlic and chicken stock until tender (about 30 minutes).
The mac & cheese was my favourite part of the meal. Gooey, but not too rich with a buttery-crisp top.
