Steps to make Easy Stovetop Chicken and Fries

Step 1 : Cut the potatoes lengthwise ( like you would cut up fries) and toss it up with all-purpose flour, cornflour, salt and pepper as much as needed. Divide it into two batches.

Step 2 : In a skillet drizzled with some oil, lay one batch of the cut up potatoes as close as you can and cover it to let it soften until you have a beautiful golden colour on the fries that are at the bottom. 

Step 3 : When the fries are done, flip them on a plate.

Step 4 : Slice up the chicken breast into small but long pieces and cook it in some oil with salt and pepper. Top them on the first batch of fries when done.

Step 5 : Now cook the second batch of fries the same way you did the first and flip them on top of the chicken with the golden side on top.

Step 6 : Dribble on top with hot sauce, garlic sauce, tahini, ketchup or mayo, it’s your call!
