instructions
Prepare & start the potatoes:
1 Prepare & start the potatoes:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with foil. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Place on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer, skin side down, on one side of the sheet pan. Roast 20 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. 

Prepare the baguettes & make the slaw:
2 Prepare the baguettes & make the slaw:

While the potatoes roast, halve the baguettes. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. In a large bowl, combine the vinegar, creamy mustard sauce, and pickle relish. Add the sliced cabbage and season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Set the slaw aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Coat & cook the chicken:
3 Coat & cook the chicken:

While the slaw marinates, in a large bowl, combine the flour and all but a pinch of the spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. Add to the bowl of seasoned flour; toss to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the coated chicken in an even layer (shaking off any excess coating before adding). Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Turn off the heat. 

Toast the baguettes & finish the potatoes:
4 Toast the baguettes & finish the potatoes:

Place the baguettes cut side up on the other side of the sheet pan of roasted potatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toast 7 to 9 minutes, or until the baguettes are lightly browned and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and transfer the toasted baguettes to a work surface.

Finish & serve your dish:
5 Finish & serve your dish:

In a bowl, combine the remaining spice blend and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper. Assemble the po’ boys using the toasted baguettes, cooked chicken, and slaw (you may have extra slaw). Serve the po’ boys with the finished potatoes and spiced mayo on the side. Enjoy!
