I wonder why they call it fish and chips when its actually fish and fries? When I first ordered this in a restaurant I was disappointed because it was not chips but rather french fries. I wonder if they do it differently in England where the dish supposedly originated?
Anyway, this recipe is great to serve to a crowd if you’re looking for something cheap but filling. It’s also a kid friendly recipe so it’s safe to serve for kiddie parties in case there’s someone allergic to chicken.
It’s called Instant Fish and Chips because you just need to buy the ready to cook french fries at the grocery store. Of course you still have to cook it but at least you dont have to peel the potatoes right?
