I'm 17 weeks pregnant and woke up craving fried chicken and collard greens.

Now I've never eaten let alone made collard greens and I don't normally eat fried chicken BUT if I don't get some kick ass collard greens and fried chicken today I may seriously cry. LOL

Any recipes or ideas on how to make this? Any kick ass fried chicken recipes?

Lol, thank you for the advise.

Quoting shimmifairy:

Buy a bag of greens that's already been cut if you can find it...if you use the whole plant it can be hell to get all the sand off and nothing is worse than gritty greens, lol...

So, you take the greens, put them in a colander and rinse them really good...get a little bit of onion, sliver it up pretty small...a little ham or bacon - I've used real bacon bits from the salad dressing isle in a pinch - a chicken bullion cube and the biggest pot you have because though they will cook down they take up a lot of room at the beginning...put the water just about to the top of the greens - because they will cook down and you don't want them to be swimming - cover the pot and put it on low and let it want them just to be simmering...stir it around every now and then to make sure all the greens get into the broth...I do it for about an hour, but I like mine a little firmer than most people....

Be careful with the salt, being preggers and be prepared to spend some time in the "office" for the next couple of days lol...
