looking for a southern dinner recipe [ moved from New Orleans]

I Made sweet pot pie, red velvet cake they were really good, the beef was lush,
but the topping on the fried chicken seemed to lack flavour, any good recipes for that?

I am thinking with going for the fried chicken and the bbq beef , with all the fixins!
what can i do for the fixins, i am thinking cornbread, some kind if rice dish ?
what other things can i do?
for pudding i though a peach cobbler and key lime pie.

Wow, so many great ideas!, i found that collards are Kale here so i could get hold of that, but so far have been unable to find lima beans,
BBq idea also great, but the next theme i have is bbq, so cant do that.
I cant get my head around jelly in savoury salad,are we talking about the fruit flavoured dessert??
got any good pudding recipes?

Thanks for the info, basically i have been given the 'theme' of deep south, and have to come up with a 4 course meal,
there are some lovely ideas there, also i assumed grits were a kind of meat??!!
I have some scope on the theme, jst cant do seafood, or deep fried stuff.

I have got to cook for a theme night ( in England) deep south USA food,
I will have 2 small ovens and 1 hob, and it will be for approx 4o people,
I need to do something that can be cooked at home and reheated there,
so far have come up with Gumbo, served with rice, i need another main course
dish thats easy to reheat, ( also have no fryer)!
and starter ideas would also be welcome.
Also , what are grits???
