Fried Chicken, Red Cabbage and sweet potato [En]

This recipe was brought to me by my eleven years old daughter. Yes, we can also learn from little ones. Yohana saw the recipe on a cooking show and wanted it absolutlely for dinner. We had to modify the recipe if we were going to eat it for dinner. The original recipe requested a marination of 16 hours total done into two steps. Well, we only had 3 hours before dinner so I decided to do an hour for each step. We were going to try it and if it did not work we were going to redo it with the prescribed soaking hours. Plus I did not have all the ingredients available so I had to customize. I used Greek yogurt instead of buttermilk for example. Let me tell you that everything turned out to be amazing, it is a diferent taste of fried chicken. and the acidity of the Greek yogurt add an acidity to the chicken and at the same time you have the sweetness brought by the brown sugar and all the smell of the spices. Let me just dtop here and give the recipe for 4 persons.
