Fried Chicken and Collard Greens

MIL made fried chicken wings and collard greens yesterday. I think I'm still full over 24 hours later. (I ate lunch today out of habit, not out of hunger.)

She marinated the wings in 4 different types of mustard (yes, I have 4 types of mustard in my fridge, probably 5 or 6), garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder, black pepper and Accent. Then she coated them in a mix of Dixie Fry and Luzianne with a little flour, and some seasoning. Then fried in canola oil until crispy and happy. Served with homemade red chili sauce.

The collards started with a pot of water and a hamhock, boiled forever with onion and garlic. She hacked up the hock, returned it to the pot with the chopped greens, some white vinegar, and some seasonings, and simmered until done. I was a little disappointed with the hamhock - it was mostly fat, barely any meat. But the greens were still incredible tasty.

I kind of hate you right now because I've been craving fried chicken and collared greens for the past 2 weeks!!! Seriously. I think it's because Food Network keeps doing specials on fried foods.

OH MY this meal looks tasty and fatty and delicious!

Hi Krizia - Don't hate me! Next time you're in CA, drop down to SD and we'll make you some! Barring that, surely NY has some great fried chicken and collards?
