Comfort food at its best--not for dieters though! We served this with brocolli but I think it would be better with green beans or another "comfort food" type of vegetable. The original recipe (Bon Appetit October 2006) used sausage in the gravy an chilies in the potatoes and gravy which we skipped. The chicken requires a 4-hour soak (I put my chicken in to soak in the morning and it was ready to make at the end of the day). This is also an easy recipe to divide or multiply depending on how many you will be feeding, however the leftover chicken freezes wonderfully for chicken salads. Order of preparing dinner is: (1) soak chicken, (2) boil potatoes and start to heat oil to fry chicken, (3) fry chicken and start gravy and finish potatoes and cook vegetables. Gravy can be made ahead and reheated before serving.
