I had some chicken to make into baked tenders this evening, and I decided to have sweet potato fries with them. However, they bake at different temperatures, so instead of trying to figure out how to sync them, I decided to fry the fries on the stove.
I poured an inch or so of vegetable oil into a dutch oven and heated it up. Meanwhile, I chopped up 1/2 a sweet potato into thin shoestring fries. I coated the fries with just a bit of olive oil and rolled them in breadcrumbs. Once the oil was hot, I dropped in all the fries and let them fry for roughly 10 minutes. Because that's how much time the chicken tenders had left in the oven. The fries seemed a bit limp when I took them out and laid them on paper towels, but they actually crisped up nicely when they dried. And they were delicious. Surely not quite as healthy as the baked variety, but that's ok with me for something tasty!
Dinner is complete. With ketchup, ranch, and honey mustard. Gotta have options!
