Fried Chicken Soul Food Dinner Menu

Stop Guessing What To Cook For Dinner

Each month Soul Food and Southern Cooking publishes a Soul Food Dinner menu for both novice and seasoned cooks alike.  The decision to feature a different soul food menu each month is a result of several requests for suggestions and details about how to bring all the pieces together to make the perfect dinner. 

It's my goal to provide menu ideas, for those lacking creativity or just hesitant to venture out on their own.  

Our menu ideas also highlight some of the most popular soul food dishes and features some of the hard to find traditional meals you grew up on.  

You will soon learn to trust your instincts and cook from the soul, because that is the true essence of preparing soul food.

Our Featured Dinner Menu Idea Of The Month

  • Southern Deep Fried Chicken - here's how to deep fry chicken that stays juicy inside and crispy on the outside.
  • Collard Greens - this recipe with ham hocks is probably the most popular and most favorite soul food side dish.
  • Black Eyed Peas - never underestimate the power of a bowl of black eyed peas and corn bread.
  • Corn Bread - don't forget your corn bread if you're eating collard greens and black eyed peas.
  • Sweet Potato Pie - eat this sweet pie hot from the oven or cold from the refrigerator.  I prefer to eat my sweet potato pie served cold and topped with whipping cream.
  • Homemade Lemonade - nothing is more refreshing than drinking a cold tall glass of iced homemade lemonade.

I'm sure you will enjoy this southern dinner favorite.  Don't be stingy and eat all this good food by yourself.  So invite over the whole family and gather around the kitchen table for another remarkable dinner.
