  • Do you know how to fry chicken? I make a really good CRISPY fried boneless skinless chicken breast. PM me if you'd like my recipe.

  • I am from south alabama. My favorite southern food is chicken and dumplings, fried okra, and cornbread. Fried Chicken is also a good southern favorite.

  • Chicken fried steak with country gravy & cornbread. Or if you want a nice southern breakfast (which you can eat for dinner too, there is no law against it LOL) then have biscuits & gravy with thick sausage gravy. Or mix the two, I saw on the Travel Channel a dish that was chicken fried steak on a biscuit covered in country sausage gravy.

  • Thansk Wannabe - after reading that I am starving! Have you ever seen Paula Deen make a hamburger with and egg, bacon and cheese adn use a Krispy Kreme Donuts for the bun? Yikes!

    I am from Georgia and we always had Tuna Cassarole with a cheese and potato chip topping - Yum (No wonder I was a fat kid....)

  • Does he like collard greens? Winter greens are the best. I boil a large pot of water with tons of seasonings & 3-4 ham hocks. Then add greens after cutting out main stem (throw out), slicing into smaller pieces and rinsing in cold water to remove grit. (I fill the 1/3 of the sink with water, agitate leaves, strain & put into pot. If there's a lot of sand, empty sink for the next batch) I boil until soft 2-3 hours but some don't like them as mushy. Pick the hock meat off & put back into pot. Serve hot or with vinegar if requested.

  • I haven't seen Paula Deen make that, but apparently there is a restuarant somewhere that makes a burger with a krispy kreme donut as a bun...that is just insane!
