  1. #1 Fried Chicken! 
    Fried chicken is an American food icon. There are a thousand different ways of frying chicken but as we all know, the way your (fill in the blank) fried it is the only "true" way.

    So how did she do it? What's your favorite fried chicken recipe/method? I'm going to fry some in a minute. Depending on the quality of the replies, I may disclose my own secret recipe. We'll see. :D

    I buy it already cooked. Frying any kind of food just makes too big a mess.

    Cast iron skillett.

    Cooking oil.

    Medium high heat.

    Breading or batter is a matter of taste.

    The main thing. The pieces of chicken can't be too large. If they are, you can't really fry them properly.

    The gargantuan breasts and thighs of a lot of supermarket chicken are really not the best when fried. You can cook them until they are "done" but if a piece of chicken is too large then it doesn't fry well.

    You're right about that, my friend. If I'm frying factory chicken, I always cut the breasts in half. If you let those monsters fry long enough to cook through, you'll just end up with tough chicken.

    Dude! Pressure cookers can't be used for frying! The gasket will melt.

    I know they make pressure fryers, though.

    I bought some fried chicken in a supermarket deli once that they said was essentially pressure fried. It was delicious. The deli worker said the cooker was very expensive.

    It was supposed to be lower in fat somehow, according to what the label said.
