Recently I saw an interesting new show in Travel Channel:Man vs Food . Adam Richman is the host who travel to various places in US to take great challenge with extraordinary food.One of the episode he had fried sweet potato fries with his steak or burger..At first I thought it's french fries but later found that the fries is sweet potato !! Fried Sweet Potato is as good as french fries as a side dish.Well,summer is almost over,so I better make use of the outdoor grill before pack and store..To my surprised this Fried sweet potato fries is really good:crispy and savoury.Here is my simple Grilled Chicken with Fried Sweet Potato Fries...
6-8 pieces chicken thigh,fats remove and clean
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp Cayenne pepper powder
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp sea salt
2 tbsp ground black pepper
*marinate above ingredients in Ziploc overnight*
BBQ sauce for brushing
2 roots sweet potato,about 3-4 lb ,peeled and cut stripe
1/2 cup self raising flour
1 cup cooking oil
1:Preheat grill at high heat.When grill is hot enough,reduce to medium,then place chicken skin on top of the grill.Grill marinated chicken thigh over medium high heat over the hot grill ..Cover with the lid ,make sure the temperature at least 300 F and above.
2:Grill chicken both side for 15 minutes each or until cooked.Brush with some BBQ sauce before remove and set aside.
3:Heat oil in fryer or skillet at medium high heat.Coat cut strip sweet potato with self raising flour,shake the excess flour before place into the hot oil.Fry sweet potato until golden brown,then dish out and place on paper towel to absorb excess oil before serve warm with grilled chicken.
