A note about serious food allergies

This stick-to-your-ribs satisfying country classic is an indulgence you've earned. The crispy comfort that only fried chicken can supply is accompanied by mashed potatoes and sweet corn. While that “other” chicken has you eating out of a bucket, this homey treat transports you to an idyllic country farmhouse on the prairie. Yee-Haw! Tip: Make potatoes easier to cut by making a large slice that leaves a flat surface. Place the flat surface on the cutting board and get to dicing!

Before You Cook

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using pork chops, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 2 and 3 flipping every 3-5 minutes until golden brown and pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-14 minutes. Pork thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner chop, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Cut potatoes into 1/2" pieces.

    Bring a small pot with potato pieces and enough water to cover to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until fork-tender, 12-15 minutes.

    Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot. Add half the butter, 1/4 the cream base (reserve remaining of each for gravy), and 1/2 tsp. olive oil. Mash until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside.

    While potatoes cook, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle.

    Heat canola oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat, 5 minutes.

    While oil heats, pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of pepper.

    Combine mayonnaise and 2 tsp. water in a mixing bowl. Place chicken breading in another mixing bowl.

    Dip one chicken breast in mayonnaise-water mixture, covering completely. Then coat completely in chicken breading, shaking off any excess. Repeat with second chicken breast.

  3. 3

    Fry the Chicken

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of chicken breading to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.

    Lay chicken breasts away from you in hot oil and flip every 3-5 minutes until golden brown and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-14 minutes.

    Transfer chicken to towel-lined plate. Rest, at least 5 minutes.

    While chicken rests, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Cook the Corn

    Place another small pot over medium heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and corn to hot pot. Stir occasionally until warmed through, 4-5 minutes.

    Transfer corn to a plate and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Wipe pot clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Make Gravy and Finish Dish

    Return pot used to cook corn to medium heat.

    Add green onions (reserve a pinch for garnish) and remaining cream base to hot pot. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir often until slightly thickened, 3-5 minutes.

    Remove from burner and stir in remaining butter and a pinch of pepper.

    If desired, cut chicken into 1/2" thick slices.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, pouring gravy over chicken and garnishing potatoes with reserved green onions. Bon appétit!
