This Is The Best Mashed Potato Recipe To Serve With Chicken
Add pesto to your mashed potatoes to transform your chicken meal into a real winner.
Chicken and potatoes is a classic dinner combo. If you’re looking for more flavor while eating a simple fried chicken dinner, make your meal more appetizing by introducing a flavorful ingredient, not to the chicken, but to your mashed potatoes instead. We say stir in pesto into your mashed potatoes!
Pesto itself is packed with flavor. The finely chopped basil, nuts, garlic, parmesan cheese, and olive oil emulsion are all just waiting for a simple food to flavor, and mashed potatoes is a great canvas for its flavor.
Don't want to make pesto from scratch? Use store-bought bottled or prepared pesto—it's just as good as one made from scratch. All you really have to do is stir in a tablespoon of prepared pesto for every cup of mashed potatoes.
With this hack, you instantly have a flavor-packed side to serve with your chicken. You won’t need gravy for the mashed potatoes because it’s going to be flavorful already.
