Chicken is such a versatile food that can be eaten with any side dish. This is Mamake Bobo’s recommendation. Peel some potatoes and chop them into wedges. Boil them for 7 minutes in a mixture containing water, turmeric, rosemary, salt and garlic. Drain them then deep fry in hot oil until crispy on top.

Lay them on paper towel to drain extra oil then sprinkle on top a paprika, salt and garlic powder blend.
