Southern fried chicken dinner in a bowl

Lynnda Cloutier


If you wish, you can substitute 5 cups packaged shredded cabbage with carrot (cole slaw mix) for the cabbage and carrots, or use one package deli coleslaw for the slaw mixture. (I'm lazy. That's what I do). If you want a lighter recipe, you can use reduced fat versions of the mayo and ranch salad dressings. Can't remember where I got this recipes, but it's an oldie. So I'll just say source for pic and recipe unknown. I do know that Southern living had something like this, but maybe not quite the same.Source: Unknown
