Yam Fries


A few days ago when I was reading The Lexophile's blog, she mentioned she had made homemade sesame/cornmeal chicken strips. I asked her for the recipe and she said it was chicken breasts pounded thin. The coating was equal parts: flour, cornmeal and sesame seeds. Dip them in egg wash and then the chicken should be pan-fried so the sesame seeds get toasted. It really was that easy. She also recommended sweet potato fries.

While I was peeling the yams I decided to make beer batter yam fries like the ones served at my favorite restaurant, Valley Brew.

Krysta's Yam Fries

4 yams, peeled and cut into french fries

2 beers, preferably a pale lager

3 eggs, beaten

approximately 1 cup flour

salt, nutmeg and paprika

Place cut yams into water and bring water to a boil then cook for about 10 minutes. While the yams are cooking, beat eggs and beer together in a bowl. In a separate bowl; mix flour salt, nutmeg and paprika together. When yams are done, drain well. Place yams in the beer and egg mixture, coat well. Then place yams in flour mixture, again make sure to coat well. The coating will make the potatoes gummy, but don't worry that's how they're suppose to be. Fry those babies up it won't take too long. When the fries are a nice golden color take them out and drain.

I served the chicken strips and yams with Iron Chef's Orange Sauce Glaze with Ginger.
*Lexophile, thanks for the recipe and I hope I've represented you, your blog and your recipe in a good light. Folks, any errors in the recipe are mine and mine alone.

Too funny! Looks like we both had the same dinner last night. Only I was lazy and used extra crispy oven fries. Hope they were good.

I was so happy the way the yam fries turned out, you wouldn't even know. The chicken strips turned out perfect also and I liked how the cornmeal and sesame added some crunch and texture to the chicken. My toughest critics said they want it again, so that's all that needs to be said!

Those sound amazing! I can't wait to try it out. Do you think I'd be okay with sweet potatoes instead of yams? Yams are a bit hard to come by down here...

I think sweet potatoes would turn out great. It's been a yucky week around here and one of the only bright spots has been the yam fries. Please let me know how they turn out because I wrote that recipe off the top of my head after I made the fries.
