The Best Skillet Fried Potatoes with two secret ingredients that make these extra delicious!Hi everyone! Amanda here from Old House to New Home sharing one of my favorite side dishes, perfect skillet potatoes! I called these the best skillet potatoes because they just may steal the show from the main dish of your dinner!

These skillet potatoes remind me of growing up. My grandmother always made what she called lyonnaise potatoes to go with so many different meals. Her version used tons of butter and oil and were just so delicious. My recipe uses quite a bit less butter but I have two super star ingredients here that take these potatoes from good to great!

The Best Skillet Fried Potatoes with two secret ingredients that make these extra delicious!The first secret ingredient is paprika. Not only does paprika give them a beautiful color, but it gives it a slight hint of flavor that will have people wondering what that delicious taste is! The secret, and most important secret ingredient here is chicken broth. When the potatoes are almost done, I add chicken broth to the pan and put the lid on. The potatoes steam in that liquid and slowly absorb all of the flavor. It gives the potatoes a rich taste and wonderful texture.

I like to garnish with a little green onion but some crispy bacon would be delicious too! Even better, throw on some cheese and let melt! You can really dress these up to go with dinner, but they are also versatile enough to serve as a breakfast potato!

The Best Skillet Fried Potatoes with two secret ingredients that make these extra delicious!Like most potato dishes, this isn’t a quick cook. If you are short on time, throw them in the microwave after slicing for 5-10 minutes, to speed up the cooking process before throwing them in the pan. You’ll sacrifice a little on the texture, but sometimes you need a little shortcut to help dinner come together quickly!

    So this will be more than a single layer of potatoes,obviously? Do they cook somewhat evenly?
