How to Make Yummy Chicken Fat Potato Wedges


  • 2Chef’s Note: You can actually buy chicken fat; however, the next time you’re boiling a fryer for some chicken stock, scoop off that chicken fat and save it for other uses… like making potato wedges.
  • 3Gather your ingredients.
  • 4Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 450f (230c).
  • 5Put a pot over medium-high heat and add about 6 quarts (5.5liters) of water.
  • 6Bring to the boil, add the salt, and stir to combine.
  • 7Carefully add the potatoes, and return the water to a boil.
  • 8Chef’s Note: Allow the potatoes to boil for one minute.
  • 9Drain the potatoes.
  • 10Place the potatoes into the dry pot and cook over medium heat for a minute or two, until they are dry.
  • 11Chef’s Note: Bang the pot around a bit to ruff up the potatoes.
  • 12Add the chicken fat, and a bit of salt and pepper, and then gently toss until the potatoes are evenly covered in the chicken fat.
  • 13Add the potatoes to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • 14Place in the preheated oven and allow them to bake until beginning to brown, about 20 minutes.
  • 15Toss, and return to the oven for another 10 minutes.
  • 16Toss, again, and return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
  • 18Serve them as you would for any starch. Enjoy.
  • 19Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
