Okay, now I know this is gonna sound stupid, but I can't explain myself. Over the years I have tried making fried chicken in a frying pan. It would never come out right. I mean, there have been two things in this world that I could not make, pancakes and fried chicken. I know, stupid, huh? Oh, I forgot another...homemade gravy. Okay, that's three. Now I watch this cooking show on youtube called Cooking With Jack and he was making fried chicken in a fryer. I don't know what brand of fryer it was but then I got to thinking about my fry baby. I've had it for a long, long time, but I have never made fried chicken in it. I have cut up chicken to make fried chicken nuggets, but it never occurred to me to fry up chicken breasts. So that's why I ask, how stupid am I? Fry baby instructions says only to use vegetable in the fryer, but I didn't have any. All's I had was olive oil. So, in it went. And the chicken cooked up wonderfully. I also made rice/broccoli steamers with some leftover cornbread I had.
The chicken breasts I bought with my $.75 off coupon. It's one of the coupons I had trouble at the store redeeming....just because it wouldn't scan on their register they didn't want to accept it. It's a Perdue coupon. I cut it out of the coupons I got in the paper. Go figure...but they finally did accept it.
So, cooking at home saved us at least $30. I like that.
