Fall Fest: Chicken Smashed Potatoes

March 26, 2012

In southern cooking, we love our potatoes smashed, mashed, hashed, diced, casseroled, and scalloped.  We love them baked, fried, boiled, and sauteed.  And, it turns out, we are not alone.The most  popular vegetable in the world is a great source of Vitamins C and B6, copper, potassium, manganese, and dietary fiber. Almost every culture in every region has their own potato traditions.When choosing potatoes, look for those that have no green or shriveled areas on the skin. We use the easy-to-find Yukon Gold variety, but any yellow-fleshed potato would do, such as Michigold, Saginaw Gold, Red Gold, or Rose Gold. Remember that potatoes should never be stored in the fridge.  They do like cool dark places, and extras can "keep" for a couple of months if held between 45° to 50°.Our recipe for Chicken Smashed Potatoes calls on our Chicken Seasoned Cooking Base, which we make by slow-roasting chicken with bell peppers, garlic, and onions with traditional Southern spices. For true down-home-style potatoes, leave the skin on, and leave the lumps in.  Our Basic Gravy complements this recipe beautifully.Serves: 4Size: 1/2 cup


1 lb. golden potatoes (about 4 medium potatoes)1 1/4 cup water1 1/2 tsp. Glory Foods Chicken Seasoned Cooking Base1/4 cup sour cream


  1. Mix Glory Foods Chicken Seasoned Cooking Base with water and blend completely.

  3. Place potatoes in a saucepan and add chicken base mix. Cook covered for about 35 minutes at medium heat until tender.
  4. Let rest for about 5 minutes. With a potato masher, mash potatoes with the cooking broth.
  5. Blend in the sour cream and serve.
