Sure enough, he did! Lance cooked up a batch of Indigo's signature, Company Fried Chicken, just the way his mother did when company came over!
It's healthy to enjoy your fried chicken with a side of vegetables. Here's Lance's recipe for his Whipped Sweet Potatoes:
Whipped Sweet Potatoes
5 3/4 pounds yams -- peeled and chopped
5/8 pound brown sugar
5/8 quart heavy cream
1/16 cup imitation vanilla extract, no alcohol
1/16 cup ground cinnamon
1/16 cup ground nutmeg
1/4 pound unsalted butter -- chunked
Place yams in a large pot and boil until tender, do not over cook, place potatoes on a sheet pan and dry out in a 350* oven, do not let potatoes brown.
While potatoes cook, in a pot, mix together all other ingredients except butter, stirring well to incorporate. thoroughly.
Bring the cream mixture to a slow boil and reduce about 1/4 for a nice caramel flavor.
Remove from heat and whisk in butter.
In a large container, mix together the liquid and the dried out potatoes very well and check the flavor (more vanilla, spice,etc.)
When blended well, put mixture in a food processer and blend until smooth.
