Is oven frying healthier than pan frying or deep frying? I thought I read some where it said oven frying uses less oil. Also read oven frying is faux frying, and really oven frying is baking. Everything is done in the oven when doing oven frying...but just how much oil do you need. I don't think you submerge the chicken in oil,so what would be the right amt. of oil to use?

Oven frying is mostly coating foods that you would normally deep fry such as French Fries or Fried Chicken and placing it in the oven to cook instead of a vat full of oil. And yes, it could be considered healthier than deep frying.

But your recipe is not oven frying.

It's also not BBQ, really. It's baked chicken with ranch dressing and BBQ sauce. Sounds a bit salty ....

I have never been so proud of my new bride. Shortly after we were married she told me she was making bbq chicken for supper. My mouth watered all day. I had a small lunch so I had more room for supper. I hurried home right after work. The grill was cold. I asked why she didn't make bbq chicken? She said she did and pulled a pan of chicken out of the oven. I said that is not bbq........That is when the fight started.

If I'm talking to a cook, BBQ is one thing. If I'm talking to a random person, it may be something quite different. To the average home cook, BBQ is anything with barbecue sauce on it, and they will fight that belief to the death. It's simply not worth the hassle to disagree. They will also tell you that anything cooked on a grill is grilled (i.e. the terms barbecue and grilling are interchangeable), another belief that will go against the grain of the purist.

Most folks here know that BBQ is slow cooking on a grill or smoker, and BBQ sauce isn't even a requirement. The purist would say that it must be done over a good hardwood charcoal, but I'm not that rigid in my definition - I use a Weber gas grill.

Grilling is cooking hot and fast on a grill. I still prefer a gas grill, but in it's purest form, a griller will again say that charcoal is a necessity. I guess it just depends on how dedicated one is to the craft. Good results can be had without charcoal, and bad results can come out of the best charcoal grill.

It's easiest to just try and understand what language a person is speaking, then respond in kind. It makes the world a happier place.

ok, so if i put a chicken or pieces of chicken in my vertical gas fired smoker over apple and hickory chips at 225 for 4 to 6 hours, then slather them in bbq sauce, pop 'em on the grill to cook in the sauce and crisp/char the skin, is it not bbq?
